Easter Monday marks the official opening of Parramatta’s new Bankwest Stadium with the Eels hosting the Wests Tigers in the NRL.
The magnificent 30,000 capacity venue, also known as Western Sydney Stadium, will be the home of the Eels and A-League side Western Sydney Wanderers.
With its intimate structure designed to amplify atmosphere for fans of rectangular sports, the new stadium is expected to be one of the best in Australia.
However, during a recent open day at the venue, one punter found a seat in the house that definitely wasn’t the best.

The view of the pitch from the particular seat in the premium area is obscured by a concrete wall next to the staircase.
When alerted to the situation, Bankwest Stadium moved fast to scupper concerns, saying the seat wouldn’t be for sale during matches.
Hey Osman, this is one of the premium terrace seats with a restricted view. Because of this it’s not sold for events.

At least no one can apparently purchase their way into this seat, but it will be interesting to see how many restricted view seats are around when the venue makes its debut.
