Bankwest Stadium Members Seating Reminder
For Ticketed Members attending Round 6 at Bankwest Stadium, please see below for an important reminder regarding your seating.
The Aisle reference on your Member card refers to the aisle that Bankwest Stadium recommend you walk through to get to your seat. It is common for the Aisle reference on your Member card to be different to the actual Section that your seat is located in. Please see below for a 2019 Reserved Seat Member card example:
John Smith’s 2019 Bankwest Stadium seating details are:
- Section 115, Row 1, Seat 2
John Smith 2019 Reserved Seat Member Card States:
- Aisle 114, Row 1, Seat 2
Whilst John’s seat is located in Section 115, his Member card states Aisle 114, Row 1, Seat 2. By walking down Aisle 114 instead of Aisle 115, John Smith will not have to walk through as many seats and can therefore find his seat in Section 115 with greater ease. As we will have a full house, we highly recommend you enter in the correct aisle.
Eels Members Bankwest Stadium Seating allocations can be found on the back of their Member Card.
