Michelob Ultra Arena Seating Chart

The seating chart at Michelob Ultra Arena isn’t the same for every event. Sports need different seating than concerts and this arena accommodates those needs with ease. The floor can be transformed into a basketball court, boxing ring, or extra floor seating for a concert.

Boxing

Seating at the arena for boxing is different than any other event, except maybe wrestling. The boxing ring sits in the middle of the arena floor. Seats are available 360 degrees around the boxing ring on multiple levels. 

The closer you are to the action, the better. If you can’t afford seats with a great view of what’s happening in the ring, large projection screens give guests an up-close look at what’s happening.

Basketball Seating for Las Vegas Aces

Basketball at the arena formerly known as Mandalay Bay Events Center transforms the floor of the arena into a basketball court. The Las Vegas Aces, a women’s basketball team, calls the Michelob Ultra Arena home. 

Las Vegas Aces games make up the majority of the basketball games played in the arena, but similar seating charts are used for all basketball events. Fans of the Las Vegas Aces can even become season ticket holders to attend all home games.

Courtside seats are available for special guests, but most of the people in attendance will be in level 100, 200, or 300 seating.

Concerts

Michelob ULTRA Arena Concert Seating Chart

Concerts at Michelob Ultra Arena have a similar seating chart as concerts at other venues. The main stage is at the front of the venue, with various levels of seating taking up the rest of the venue.

Floor seats are available right in front of the stage. Level 100 seats are one level above the floor, while level 200 seats are 2 levels up and the furthest from the stage.

Michelob Ultra Arena Parking

Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort is conveniently located on Las Vegas Blvd. The easiest option for parking for the events center is to pay the Mandalay Bay parking fee. Valet parking starts at $18-$30 and self-parking starts at $12-$15. Those prices increase for some special events, holiday events, and are also subject to change. 

There’s never a shortage of Uber and Lyft drivers in Las Vegas either, so you don’t necessarily have to drive yourself. All events at the events center are marked with signs to direct drivers to find self-parking at the parking garage, valet, or to drop off a passenger.

The MGM Resorts-owned Michelob Ultra Arena is located right off the Las Vegas Strip at 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. The venue can be accessed directly off the Strip through Mandalay Bay or from the parking garage outside the Mandalay Bay Resort.
