Editor Review

Stadium Scene Editor

I had heard nothing but great things about this stadium, as it is a soccer-specific stadium and they apparently modeled it after European soccer stadiums. I had seats in the Cauldron or the supporters section. I have been in MANY supporters sections around the country and world and never had a more difficult time. 

I read up prior to going and knew to get in early. I struggled to find the way to the supporters section (as you almost have to walk out of the stadium to get back into it to get there). Once there, it is GA, but the seats are bleachers so there is no numbering or any way to direct people to make sure they don’t take up more than one spot. As such, it fills in making it impossible to get any spot. I had to actually get seated in a different location due to issues with fans inside the stadium. 

My reseated location was okay. Just an average stadium. I would want to go back again to see if I have a better experience.
