Bye-Bye Bad Seats — Gametime Bans 66,000 Obstructed View Listings Across All Live Events Spanning the Boston Red Sox to Hamilton

The last-minute ticket leader is also launching new product features including stadium dining guides and venue information such as bag policies and ridesharing tips to further its curated, mobile offering to provide the best fan experience possible


What good are tickets to the next big game if you can’t even see it? Gametime, the company delivering the best experience for the last-minute fan, today announces its ban on over 66,000 obstructed-view seats at venues around the country across all live events, from sports to theater. The company is also announcing the addition of new post-purchase features to ensure the best possible fan experience en route to and inside of the venue.

Obstructed-view seats are the bane of a good live experience. Fans, attracted to the lower prices that accompany obstructed view seats, are caught off guard when they arrive at their seats and are unable to see half the action. Legacy ticket sellers - driven by profit rather than customer experience - continue to peddle these deficient seats, often times without a disclaimer that the seat will bring a sub-par experience. That’s why Gametime, committed to bringing the best possible fan experience, is removing all obstructed view seats from its marketplace so fans never have to fear missing half of Hamilton or the winning score due to a bad view.

“Gametime uniquely focuses on curation, selecting great values and eliminating bad seats, to ensure fans get the best experience possible. Nothing is worse than grabbing seats to your favorite show, only to spend the entire experience trying to see around a column,” said Gametime CEO and founder Brad Griffith. “We know that limited views lead to limited experiences. We ban these seats from our marketplace so that fans can confidently purchase a ticket without the fear of an unforeseen support beam blocking their view ever again.”

Beyond banning bad seats at events nationwide, Gametime is also adding new features to help last-minute fans optimize their live event experience. The following features will be accessible in a handful of venues with more rolling out throughout spring:

  1. Curated food and drink guides show fans the best places to eat at the venue
  2. Important venue-specific information helps fans plan ahead, including bag policies, Uber and Lyft pickup locations, and parking info
  3. Photo frames to let fans snap and share pictures with friends
  4. ‘Go Again!’ which offers personalized recommendations for upcoming events making it as easy as two taps to go again

This amplification of the fan experience comes on the heels of the company announcing LastCall, which brought fans everywhere a new way to get into live events up to 90 minutes after the start.
