Sports enthusiasts have slammed a new $ 360 million stadium in western Sydney after meeting with obstructed vision during a Sunday morning tour.
More than a thousand people donated the new Western Sydney Stadium in Parramatta after it was officially opened by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
The 30,000-seater rectangular terrain will host NRL and A-League competitions.
But fans were not impressed with the layout of the new stadium and took Twitter to point out that some seats had a restricted view of the field.

The frustrated fan was not the only one, with dozens of social media users struggling.
& # 39; Ouch … refund?! & # 39; wrote one, while another asked: & # 39; how is this possible? & # 39;
& # 39; Money you've spent well paying for that seat, look at all the action you can see & # 39 ;, a third added.
Other users joked about the view, suggesting that the seats were reserved for other teams or referees.
& # 39; That's where the referee sits for Storm games, & # 39; said one.
& # 39; I'm pretty sure they'll take the fans out there, & # 39; another said.

But Mrs. Berejiklian defended her new stadium.
She claimed that voters gave her government the checkmark to continue with the opening of the first of three controversial sports stages.
& # 39; The people of NSW … gave us the tick to keep moving forward and we know in our hearts what is good for the citizens of our state, & # 39; she said.
The stadium has the steepest grandstands in the country, according to the state government, and is designed to amplify the noise of the crowd.
The Parramatta eels, Western Sydney Wanderers, Wests Tigers and NSW Waratahs will also send the stadium home.
The round 6 NRL match between Parramatta Eels and West Tigers will be the first sporting event in the stadium on April 22.
