Every New Year’s Day, the NHL puts on one of the most exciting games of the regular season: The NHL Winter Classic. This prestigious, outdoor game is the perfect way to ring in the New Year, and one of the only opportunities for fans to take in a game outside of the normal hockey venues.

In 2020, the Winter Classic will take place – once again on New Year’s Day – in Dallas, Texas at the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium. The Dallas Stars will host the Nashville Predators in what should be a fantastic battle between Central Division rivals.

Is attending this event on your list of New Year’s resolutions? Before you think about purchasing a ticket, here’s a rundown of everything you need to know about the Winter Classic seating chart.

Cotton Bowl Stadium Seating Chart

Since Cotton Bowl Stadium normally plays host to football games there shouldn’t be much change in seating layout for the Winter Classic, considering it’s designed like a bowl with the playing surface in the middle.

Take a look at the seating chart for a clearer view of the stadium:

Seating areas:

Sections 6/106/24/128: These are the optimal seating views, right in the middle of the stadium

Sections 33/139/15/117: These sections are on each end of the stadium, and will directly face each goal

Cotton Bowl Stadium features over 92,000 seats in a bowl shape, meaning there’s no seating angle that won’t offer a good look at the ice on New Year’s Day. Each seating area has a lower tier (1-36) and an upper tier (100s).
