Hi fellas

I've been to Campbelltown on a few of occassions, but I'm unsure of where you can get the BEST general admission seating. The last time I went was the Bulldogs match in June and we got seating on the hill closest to Leumeah station, but were too far away from the action and had to keep turning to the big screen to see how close the team on the other side were to the goal line.

Does anybody (who's more familiar with the ground) know where you can get the best general admission seating? Anybody who knows anything, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

You can only get so far infield with the general admin ticket, as Ink says, it is about the 10 metre line. I find these seats quite good actually.

I remember when the best general admin seating at Ctown Stadium was on the balcony/roof of the fibros along Pembroke Road.

I remember Orana Park without the stand and just the toilet block and change rooms.

My first game at campbelltown on the hill...as a 7 year old

Wests beat the Tigers in a MASSIVE upset 6-4. :cry:

The Leichhardt return game my parents couldn't take me to - Tigers 40-0. :cry:

that must predate the magpies move out there.

As others have said, Bays 2 and 8 are good, or 34 and 16

It can depend on the amount & type of tickets that are sold as well. If there are only around 14,000 there they dont have people checking tickets aside from the members bays.

With the dogs game as there were 20,000, nearly all bays had ground officials there so most of the general admission tickets (me including) were freezing our asses off on the hill.

I played at Orana Park 30-odd years ago as a kid.

Also went there often when the Maggies first moved to C/Town. You could take your own beer in then! Porta-loos and Pal Wonder Dogs at half time. Oh the memories :)

40-0? That was a rare one. Balmain seemed to always struggle against the Magpies, even when they were only winning a few games a year.

sometimes bays 17 & 23 are general admission (bronze). it just depends how many tickets have been sold before game day. i normally sit in bay 17 but if that isnt general admission on the day then i'll go in bay 16. bay 17 and bay 16 isnt that far from the video screen either. you can normally tell from the 2 ropes going down 2 aisles on the eastern stand which areas are general admission on the day. the area between the 2 ropes is not general admission

Bring back the Orana Park hill and the temporary grandstands at the northern end that just ended up staying there for every. They were the best seats

Driving to C'Town Stadium this afternoon from Beecroft. How long should I give it to get there and where can I park. Anyone ?
