  • Not really a tourist spot. Looks like other major stadiums in the city. A fortune was spent in your building, but the engineers and architects did not think in a way that the environment be ventilated. It's very hot!!!

  • We love sports and football is our favorite sport, so in our trips include the arenas and stadiums where we spent. Unfortunately the arena didn't have a guided tour! More by our insistence, an employee of the arena took us for a tour, wonderful and modern Stadium! but under used, a shame!!!
