The Emirates stadium layout has been modified so as to copy the layout of the late Highbury stadium. Namely recreating the old North Bank, East Stand, West Stand and Clock End, and putting the old clock in the “new” stadium (all maps and graphics courtesy of Arsenal FC).
The club named the four sides of the stadium like it was at Highbury!
Away Fans: They generally seat in Blocks 20, 21, 22 & 23 (league games, Champions’ League) and sometimes even take from Block 20 till 26 (FA Cup games).
Block 22 & 23: These blocks are generally reserved for the away fans. But, if the travelling club’s allocation is small, then these 2 blocks will become available to Arsenal fans who wish to buy tickets there. This is the case for the Arsenal v Newcastle game on 29.12.2012. I spoke to the Box Office today (29.11.2012) and they confirmed that all Arsenal fans can buy in those sections.
Here is a good FAQ from the club regarding the Emirates Stadium, I would advise any travelling supporter not familiar with the Emirates stadium to check it out.
If you seat in the Lower Tier from Blocks 2 to 15 (front rows), you should have a good glimpse of the Arsenal team training before games… and that is generally the side of the pitch towards which the home team attack in the second half.
For more information on where the best seats are, and what kind of view you get from them, check this blog. In recent games, I have taken pictures from where I was seated, and indicated the location of my seat (including some comments). Or check Arsenal own modelisation tool here.
Here is the Emirates Stadium seating plan, if you just need the Block numbers and their situation in the stadium as a whole:
And the club level still has the same layout as before:

Here are a few questions that people search on Google before they reach this post. I will try and answer a few here:
emirates stadium layout, emirates stadium seating plan, emirates stadium seating chart, emirates stadium seat map: see above chart(s). The stadium as a whole or stand by stand.
how many rows are there in the upper tier of the emirates: if you use this tool, you will be able to select the Tier, in this case the Upper Tier, the Block that you’re interested in, the Row and the Seat. Just select Upper Tier, and choose any Block, between 91 to 134, and for each Block, look in the Row drop-down list and you will have your answer there. But as a rule the Upper Tier has got between 17 and 33 rows depending on the Block you sit in. The Blocks in the middle of each stands have got the most rows. If you look for example at Blocks 130-133, they have respectively 18 rows for Block 130, 22 rows for Block 131, 30 rows for Block 132 & 33 rows for Block 133. But Blocks 96, 107, 118 & 129 have all got 17 rows each. See seating chart(s) above.
how many rows are there in lower tier of the emirates: if you use this tool, you will be able to select the Tier, in this case the Lower Tier, the Block that you’re interested in, the Row and the Seat. Just select Lower Tier, and choose any Block, between 1 to 32, and for each Block, look in the Row drop-down list and you will have your answer there. But as a rule the Lower Tier has got between 27 and 29 rows depending on the Block you sit in. The Blocks in the corner of each stands have got the least rows: blocks 4, 13, 29 & 30 have got 27 rows, the rest have got 29. See seating chart(s) above.
where are the best seats at the emirates stadium, good seats at emirates stadium, best spot in emirates stadium: this is a very subjective question, as some people prefer to be in the lower tier to be close to the pitch and the players and some prefer to be in the upper tier to see the game develop well. I reckon seats right on the middle of the length of the pitch allow you to have the best view and be close to the players. My favourite ones being in blocks 15-18 in the East Stand, and maybe between row 13 and 23. But then that is all a matter of taste.
