Eat, drink, and sleep near the Ghelamco Arena

The Ghelamco Arena is located on an office park that does not have many places to eat or drink, which is better done in Ghent's very pleasant city center. There are two hotels located on the same office park a short walk away from the arena. Each is a typical roadside major brand hotel with reliable standards, an Inn Express and Campanile Hotel. However, they are both ideal if you travel by car.

If you travel by public transport and plan to explore Ghent's city centre, you will likely prefer to stay in the centre. This boasts many hotels in different price ranges.

Useful Internet links

VisitKAAgent.be - Official website of KAA Gent. Gent tourist information can be found at Delijn.be. Public transport information can be found at Belgianrail.be. Getting off the bus was not a problem. I got too far away, though. I was just following the crowd and they did not quite know either. Getting out, I just walked to the station. It took me nearly an hour as the buses were packed. Teething problems but it is Belgium so they will sort it out.

I attended my first competitive match at Gent and it was amazing. The walk back to the station, however, was a bit challenging.

There is no bad seat in the house. The pitch is raised up on a stage. After talking with a few fans about their old ground, this ground was a welcome change. The fans love it and rightly so. The atmosphere was great. New stadiums often have a problem with creating atmospheres, but this had no such problem.

Getting off the bus was difficult. I got too far away and the crowd didn't quite know what to do. Getting out, I just walked to the station. It took me nearly an hour because the buses were packed. However, teething problems will be fixed in Belgium so it's all good.
