What to Pack
You might like to dress warmly as it does get rather cold out on the field, especially if it is windy. It’s best to bring only essentials, as there isn’t much room underneath your seat to stash your bag. Some events have bag searching and there is nowhere to cloak your goods. Some people like to bring their own pillow to sit on.
There are plenty of stalls where you can buy official merchandise or souvenirs. It’s best to buy want what you want before going inside.
Social Media photos
You might like to take a photo outside of the stadium. Once you get inside it’s rather crowded, so it’ll be best to take selfies in your seat. You might like to test out your camera’s zoom beforehand if you’d like to take photos of the players on the field.
