What an awesome stadium we have here in Edmonton. I forget just how great this place is since I never attend any Eskimo games but coming here for the FIFA Women's World Cup showed everyone, and the world, what a great facility we have right here under our nose! The stadium seats are in shades of green and gold (rightly... More

Attended the opening ceremony and opening games Canada vs China. The field level and seating area has been renovated with new seats, which are very comfortable with very good sight lines to the field. They also installed cup holders to the seats. The opening day had just over 53,000 attendance, here are the negatives; Long lineups entering stadium, stadium staff... More

it's a great stadium with exceptional viewing, particularly in the lower bowl sections. confortable seating and majestic size clearly among Canada's largest stadiums. what keeps me from giving it 5 stars is the relatively narrow coucourse areas which are fine accomodating crowds of up to about 30,000 spectators, however for big games when attendance excedes 50,000 those areas are simply...

We had a great time at the Women's World Cup at Commonwealth Stadium. There were a few big kinks in the opening game, but they seemed to have fixed them by the second game. First of all, who designs a stadium for 60,000 people without parking?! With that being said, we appreciated the free transit 2 hours before and 2... More

I was quite disappointed with the fact that we had to park 20 blocks away from the event and walk. Not anticipating this, (Very different than any other sporting event I have gone to) we were late for the event. All entrances were collapsed to one entry gate which caused congestion and frustration (Riot worthy). To top this off, the... More

Commonwealth is okay, the seats are plastic with no cup holders. Sight lines to the field are good with a nice scoreboard. The concessions are basic, burgers, dogs, nothing special compared to Stadiums in the US. No services around the area for tourist, the stadium surrounds residential streets with parking bans. A bus pass is included with football tickets which... More

Commonwealth stadium stadium is a good home for our Eskimos. And with the recent seat upgrades, it is more comfortable. Tickets are reasonable(much more so than a tickets to an Oilers game).we paid under $60 for seats in row 2, at the goal lines. Only complaints, going back up the stairs form our seats.....50rows down. It burns the legs.and beer... More

I've never been to a public sports game with such a dull and uninspiring atmosphere like an Edmonton Eskimos game. I went into the venue unfamiliar with the CFL as I never followed yet open minded and ready for a good time. The stadium itself is in decent shape, the exterior looks nicer than the interior covered areas, the restaurant... More

We took our out of country friends to the season opener Edmonton Eskimo Football game and we could not have asked for a better evening. We took the LRT from Century Park, had dinner downtown and continued on the LRT to the stadium without any crowding. The stadium staff are excellent in that everything is run so smoothly with little... More

This was a great experience visiting and watching the Eskimos game. Tickets were reasonably priced, but beer was expensive.
