Wow that is a really terrible design for a sports arena. All the corner seats just face into the side of adjacent stands. They even highlight the issue in their main internal image! Are they proud of it or just not aware?

A quick estimate i would say 22x12 in each corner x4, that's 1056 spectators that aren't facing the pitch, just other people in the stands. Approximately 15% of all spectators in the arena aren't facing the game.

Why not sacrifice the clean lines, loose a few seats and fillet the corners, so that people face the game.....
