Waste of time waste of money. You are forced to watch what is described football and entertainment which what you have to endure could not be further away. Go to Thompson's park on a weekend morning for more entertainment which is free

I brought my children to the stadium today for the away kit launch and to our amazement they had a DJ and inflatables available for the family! The kids loved it and the staff were so nice and friendly.
