We attended three sessions of the Commonwealth Games Athletes at the Carrara Stadium. Whilst our seats were close to the track, they were temporary seating with room whatsoever. You were very intimate with the person sitting beside you. It was a pain every time someone...More

Venue itself is very good, very modern looking and easy to move around the venue. Lots of toilet facilities but very few water dispensers inside the venue. That would be my only concern. Specially for huge crowds like the Comm Games Opening Ceremony.
