Easy to find your way around. Either park and pay or chose a free bus ride, which will take around 5 min.

My boyfriend surprised me by getting tickets to watch the game as a birthday present. The stadium atmosphere was absolutely great. Amazing game, long line for the drinks but was all around lovely. Good staff.

Great night out to watch a very good game. Always a good game when your team wins. Access in and out was easy. Best to go by bus as it drops you right at the entry to the ground.
