a few problems...

Not enough of the cheapest seating, only 13,000 at ground plenty of room , but all of it in the most expensive sections.

Getting to the ground is a nightmare by bus, if they provided car parking it would help. buses too full, stadium web site too hard to find out where buses go from.

roof too small to give cover from sun or rain.

Home ground for the Gold Coast Suns. Gets a bit nippy in winter with the biting wind in the evening, but if you're rugged up, your views of the game are terrific, facilities are excellent.

The stadium was great havent been there since they rebuilt it. The only issue is that the traffic outside is chaotic it dosent seem well organised.

Well built. Brilliantly managed, excellent crown control. Only one concern: smokers smoke on the only grass field that kids can play footy on

Being originally from Melbourne, we know ourselves some good AFL Stadiums! but the other week we made our first venture to Metricon to watch some live footy.

The stadium itself is great - good facilities and a wonderful small stadium (capacity 25'000 I think?).

The only set back was the drop off areas - we decided not to drive so we wouldn't have problems with parking, but as we arrived to the area allocated for drop off's we were sent around in circles and not allowed to get out of the car anywhere - in between parking security and police, everyone kept pointing to the next and we literally did 2 laps of the area before we stooped and attempted to get out of the car (where there was no danger - it was to the side of where cars were driving) - but a security guard freaked out and said not to get out at that spot or the police would come?!!! So we were then made to do another lap before we were finally directed to a spot which was in the middle of the thoroughfare of cars (so in fact more dangerous than the first spot we tried to get out)!!!

Anyway we made it and had a really good night. It is also great that everyone is allowed on the ground after the game.

The parking seemed to be crazy also, so I would definitely recommend driving to where the free shuttle buses drive to and from and jump on one of those.

You can check access info for specific games at this link - if you look up the event then click 'more info' - once in the event you will see a 'getting there' button near the top/right.
