There are number of entry gates for the entry in the stadium and yeah don’t get scared by the number 70k there is never a traffic jam at this place even if its champions league finals. The arch of this stadium is very famous and during event the lights in the arch are lighted up to add to the beauty of the structure of the place. Every Sunday there is market gathering in the parking space of the stadium where you can find clothing, food and entertainment stalls; the market is called Sunday market. To be Honest I haven’t been inside the stadium I always intended to but due to work I couldn’t, maybe next time. Some people also say that you can only see white people in this place when there is some even in the stadium which is said sarcastically but its not true.
