General The East stand is amazing!

I prefer to watch the games on tv, but the few times i've been to the warriors games in the past, I've always sat in the east stand. When you need to go toilet, you had a long walk because they were underneath the stands, and there were never enough, and there were always long queues.. it would take about 10 minutes to take a leak and get back to your seat. buying food would also take an age, because of long lines, etc. well, my first game back at mt smart stadium since they've added the new east stand, I see thats all changed!

They seem to have a block of toilets in every part of the stand.. it took me about 15 seconds to get from my seat to the toilet. They have tv screens everywhere (including IN the toilets) so you can watch the action if you're late buying your hotdog.. theres a big area inside the stand where you can socialise or stretch your legs.. and theres food places everywhere as well now it seems! so no long waits anymore.

also.. are you sick of soft drinks or beer at the game? you can now buy quality coffee where the north stand used to be! i think thtas a great idea. being able to have a nice hot drink during the middle of winter. also i notice that they've got bigger and more replay screens on the ground! since they got rid of the north stand, even a crowd of 8,000 makes the stadium look like its packed. I honestly thought there was 11,000 at the penrith game.

I scored freebies to the paramatta game, so I'll be able to enjoy the facilities once again. I'm really looking forwards to it.

coffee @ football.....hmmm,

2Black2Strong gives that one a thumbs down.

Football + 'cant remember the second half' get's a thumbs up from 2Black2Strong

I love it; not sure abuot the other stands but in the time I've been in the Eastern Grand Stand it's got such a crazy yet wonderful atmosphere.

Lol, ironic that someone with the words 'black' and 'strong' is opposed to coffee... :lol:

Good on ya, jahc! The Eastern stand is one of the few places I genuinely feel at home. I've lived there for nigh on 8 years. I've sat in a West stand corporate box before, plus the bank on the northern side, but neither of them could cut the mustard compared to the East stand, its reputation as the loudest place in the park lives on. Having said that, though, both the West and South stands are louder than they used to be, and that can only be good. :)
