I just bought tickets for the 2016 Copa America Centenario Argentina vs Chile game at the Levi Stadium in Santa Clara California. My question is, how do I know which direction the players will be lining up to sing the national anthem? I don't want to be staring at the back of their heads o want to be facing them, and I need to know which side of the stadium I would have to be sitting at.

  • They normally seem to face the tunnel they came out of (assuming it isn't in a corner), where the dugouts are. Apr 4, 2016 at 20:57
  • Yea but there are like 6 dugouts 1 on each side and in every corner

    I am referring to the one where the coaching staff and substitutes sit. I don't know that stadium but in europe these are always along one side, usually either side of the tunnel the players emerge from. Apr 4, 2016 at 21:41

    Out of curiosity, why do you want to be facing them that bad?

  • Ehh I think it's an Argentine patriotic thing to be able to stand tall with you team and at least being able to see their faces haha

Most of the time players will be facing the main stand.

I'm going with the smaller one of the two long sides as the main stand. But it's a guess! Going on the image below you would have to buy tickets in one of the sections going from 131 till 145 (lower tier) or 232-246 (upper tier) enter image description here


A good way to identify the main stand they will be facing is to look for the VIP seating / Royal Box / Press seating. They will be facing in that direction.

Mind, in some cases, if there are flags being raised or flown, some teams will turn to face in that direction.
