  • Compared to the old stadium, this stadium is so much cooler temperature-wise. The cooling system is state of the art.
  • Awesome place to bring your kids. Lots of places and things to do plus the waterfront is so pretty. Great!
  • 55,000 capacity stadium that is newly built. Good seats, good ventilation. Even if it's partially open air, it's still cooling for a night concert. Plenty of clean washrooms around and some food options available too. Caught the Coldplay concert here
  • modern stadium with good facilities, good seat, clean toilet, clear signage, and easy to access via public transportation. I had very beautiful experience when i see coldplay here
  • Saw two large concerts here. Be mindful of the seating area that is not covered by the roof when booking seats. The audio system is not great which is disappointing.
