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.

Arrived for a football event in what I thought was plenty of time and found myself being directed around the entire stadium area without finding any large parking areas and all street parking being patrolled by police. I finally drove north of the stadium for approx. one km and parked in a grassed park for ten dollars. The stadium itself... More

Great place to watch sports and party with thousands of people. Grab a beer and a dog and enjoy the atmosphere. Great for outdoor concerts too!

Saw AC/DC there, it poured rain on us, lots of room to get around, although long line ups - probably just the demand for the goods. Parking was located a bit of a jaunt away but not a problem in the summer to walk it!

Went to our first (and last) American football game, seeing Edmonton Eskimos V Saskatchewan Roughriders. The game itself is boring. I don't know how a supposedly 1 hour game can last more than 3 hours. Oh yes I do. The game stops for an on field conference every 2-3 minutes and they change the whole team also every other few...

Went to Edmonton Eskimos 2013 season opener in the stadium, first time in the stadium, Very impressed with the facility and Edmonton's LRT for getting fans to and out of the grounds in an orderly manner. First rate Edmonton, be proud.
