First raptors game...help pick a budget seat close to action

Hello friends.....I've never been to Raptors game and will like to take my son (age 11) to see a game. Looking at the layout in the link below, please help pick budget seats close to the action that won't cost arm and a leg

A local bar. There is NO SUCH THING AS A BARGAIN BUDGET SEAT AT THE SCOTIABANK ARENA.
Stress is caused by NOT fishing enough.
JDM ONLY! No North American CRAP!
Megabass, Imakatsu, Jackall, GanCraft, OSP, EverGreen, YGK, Toray, Sunline, Nories, Shimano, Daiwa RULES!
EVA Air Rocks ... Air Canada SUCKS!

OK...but that is not my question. I specifically posted a link to the layout and asked where is the cheapest (budget) location to get the action for a 1st-timer with his son.

Not sure if facts are your thing but getting cheaper Raptors seats is probably a better value than paying bar prices for food and drinks for 3 hours. To each their own I guess.

EDIT: The get-in price for Monday’s game is $25 and they don’t make you buy food. If you go to a bar, I don’t see how you don’t end up spending more than that over the course of 3 hours.

Balcony prime 300 levels? Personally I would try buying off season ticket holders.

These prices arent all that bad -- you should see the price for the Golden State or San Antonio game -- $800 anyone?!

$25 get in for Raptors is actually pretty amazing. You have to pay that much to get into a Manitoba Moose AHL game at Bell MTS Place.

Thanks Op for this link above. I'm seriously considering the "standing room ticket" for tonight's Raptors game.

My question, since the Scotiabank Arena is also used for the Toronto Maple Leafs home games is there also such a thing as a "standing room ticket" for hockey as well? Thanks in advance to anyone that can answer that.

I have season seats section 122 row 15... its not as cheap as endzone/baseline, but its significantly cheaper than the 6 prime sections (107-109 & 118-120), and you're still really close to the action. My seats are right on top of the tunnel, and good bang for buck for a good view.

save on tax and fees, just go to BST Tickets forums and buy from season ticket holders.

cheaper value seats at section 300+s rows 1-8. pretty good view. I watched the hornets game and got 2 tickets at section 300ish row 6 for 85$.

but if you can afford lower bowl then that's a better view obviously.
