  • Good stadium with good sight lines from all seats. Modern inside with good facilities. A few downsides, one was the fact that alcohol wasn't served in the concourse. Don't know if this was a one off for the England game or not. Other downside is the access to the ground, steps and walk ways which became slippery might not be ideal for some.
  • Good ambient every single match, beautiful stadium and cheap tickets for first division matches.
