If you’ve ever attended a sporting event, you’re quite aware that stadium seating offers very little in the way of comfort. When the goal of a team’s ownership is to pack as many fans into a park, compromises in comfort for the sake of increasing attendance numbers and concession sales are obvious. One way to make outdoor furniture more comfortable, whether sitting on bleachers or molded, folding seats, is to use a rubber cushion for a stadium seating pad.
Given the way stadiums are built, it’s rare that you find yourself in a comfortable seat. The metal bleachers at football stadiums and the molded plastic seats at baseball parks are some of the hardest and least forgiving surfaces you could find. Combined with how tightly those seats are packed into their rows, you get uncomfortable seats with virtually no personal space. With all this going on, it’s surprising anybody is able to pay attention to what’s happening on the field.
But in ballparks, ice rinks, and stadiums that permit them, foam seat pads can help relieve pressure and allow you to enjoy the game you came to see. Foam softens hard surfaces, minimizing pressure points and boosting circulation. Much like a pad that outdoor furniture, the best stadium seating cushions are the most versatile and resilient, so they can be easily washed and resist moisture. Some high-end seat pads also include seat backs for even more support. Best of all, you can get foam pads in your team colors to cheer in comfort!
