behind the scenes

Before the match on Monday evening, we took a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium. The player areas were off-limits to us, but we still saw a lot and learned a lot. Glimpses of a whole little world behind the 90 minutes on the grass.

The press conference area:

The VIP dining area. Buffet before/during the game, comfortable seats on the south side of the stands, and some of the players come around after the game for a little casual chatting before they head to a section where they have a team supper.

The tunnel:

The grass. As in The Grass. We were not allowed on it, but near it.

The team bench. Heated in cold weather. The away bench is not heated. We loved that.

    I’d never been on a stadium tour until last year, and it’s quite interesting to go behind the scenes and hear about all the little known facts 🙂 That is funny about the away seats not being heated!
