The seats are very good but when the players are playing if you are not near the middle you are either to close or to far away The food here is not very good here either

Waste of time waste of money. You are forced to watch what is described football and entertainment which what you have to endure could not be further away. Go to Thompson's park on a weekend morning for more entertainment which is free
