The stadium is absolutely spotless and fantastic views from every seat,but very security conscious entering the ground!
To the ladies who went in the 80,s and 90,s,leave your butties and ale in the coach,even your bottles of water will be nicked this time!
The security is as keen as at any airport,so if you have got kids make sure they are fed and watered before you go in,other than that pay the stadium prices which are expensive!
I hope you all enjoy it and fotch the cup back

Ive been there a few times fossil. In my opinion the stadium lacks atmosphere. It needs a bit more umph! The noise that the crowd generate seems to evaporate in to the clouds due to the sheer openness of the stadium. Regarding the security ie confiscating butties, water, ale etc thats nothing to do with security. Its a case of "you'll buy our ale, burgers, hot dogs" etc. Total rip off and greed. And you'll have your cap nailed on by paying their grossly inflated prices. Captive audience and, they know it. Must admit though Fossil it is a decent stadium and Ive always had a decent view wherever Ive sat

Did you not go in 1929 fossil to the very first cup final I'm sure I saw you there in a picture. How much was the ale then

St Joseph's catholic club not far from the Green Man, £2.80 a pint of Bitter. Not bad for the smoke

broady, we where it there from about 12.30 'til 13.45. Good atmosphere with equal amounts of Wigan and Leeds fans and as you would imagine for a RL final, no trouble
