It really doesn’t matter where you sit as they use big screens too, I just like being close up :-)

I've snagged some A tickets but I was there at 9:56 refreshing the page! Its a good day out.

If you feel flash with the cash hospitality is GREAT at the stadium. Seats are much more comfortable, views amazing, and as food and drink are free (which are super pricey normally) then its not that bad value.

Very tempted to book on Monday. But what's the betting that there will be train strikes that day, or some other reason for the trains not to run. I think I'll stay at home and watch on TV!

I am also a bit miffed that given I volunteer my time as an official, there was no priority booking for officials. Priority and a discount to say thank you would be nice!
