  • If you go to a game, decide first to what team you're going to twist, because the supporters are separated. Local teams cheerleaders are warmest. in side street (channel) and in front people park their cars and snack on the drink before entering. You can't bring cans and sharp objects. always has reviewed by the cops for security.

  • Even if it's not red-black I can say for sure that the stadium is one of the best I've visited.
