If you like to walk far, just to realise that every time you need the toilet, cool drink / water, food... you have to wait, very long...at the U2 concert (not sure of date), I was dying of thirst! Could not even find water to drink!!

The queues went on and on, even blocking the exits.

This was the first football game I've ever attended and you'd expect the final of an African Cup of Nations to be organised a bit better after all the practice in 2010. Couldn't get a beer after standing in a surging queue for 40 minutes with rude people constantly pushing in front of you. Awful. Plus the football was worse than watching paint dry.

So much more could be done with this incredible structure which hosted the opening and closing of the 2010 Football World Cup. It's a beautiful building from the outside and we often take our foreign visitors to drive by it. But no access. It would be such a great venue for a museum on South African sport/soccer - some attraction enabling us to remember the heady days of 2010.
