“Good atmosphere, clean and safe environment.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

St Mary's is in the common design of new stadiums which are springing up all over the UK for clubs outside of the top bracket (e.g. Emirates Stadium, Etihad). Aside from the colour of the seats, you could mistake it for similar stadia in Swansea, Coventry, Leicester, etc. This is the only criticism which I will make of it. Now for the positive side, the atmosphere is great and rarely drops even when the home team aren't winning. Whilst some might say such stadia as St Mary's lack personality, give me a generic ground like this which is in good knick over a warn out Old School stadium any day. Ticket's aren't too expensive by Premier League standards (although it depends upon the opposition- higher prices charged for better teams) and snacks and drinks are the usual inflated prices we have come to expect from football clubs. The club shop is nice and on each of my visits to the ground I have found everybody, from program sellers to stewards, to be very helpful and polite.

“Southampton vs. Arsenal”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

A good football game, but the stadium had a bad organization. During the match were not any information about the match and on a big screen above the stadium is seen mostly advertising instead of feature match!

“Work celebration party”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Food & entertainment were better than expected, outside caterers I believe are employed here, the food was very good, the bar service staff were friendly but not all very experienced, drinks were expensive at the bar, venue was spotless and attractive ideal for large functions
