We went to watch Middlesbrough play Banik Ostrava in our first ever UEFA Cup away game. We had a slender lead to defend and managed to gain a draw to go through to the next round. The majority of the stadium has no roof and so if it rains you get wet. Many English Premiership fans would be horrified at the stadium and its facilities. Fortunately my brother and I have been following Middlesbrough long enough to experience similar stadiums in the other divisions of English football. To me, these are 'real football grounds' rather than the modern sterile stadiums (Ayresome Park as opposed to the Riverside Stadium).
All of the seats give an excellent view of the pitch except for the first few rows. The fencing at the front of the seats to stop pitch invasions also reduces the quality of the view until you get a little higher up.
The Banik side is one of the top Czech sides and has produced some well known players. They regularly qualify for European football.
One thing I would try to advise is arriving early if you are a visiting supporter as there was only one small entrance for the 900 official Middlesbrough tickets.
Equipment: Go prepared for rain.
