Signal Iduna Park Tickets

BVB Stadion Dortmund, known during the regular season as Signal Iduna Park, is one of the most iconic stadiums in worldwide football. It is famous for its electric atmosphere thanks to fans of Borussia Dortmund (BVB) and the iconic ‘Yellow Wall’, a sea of supporters dressed in yellow that fills one of the main stands in the stadium.

Originally known as the Westfalenstadion, the ground was built to replace the outdated Stadion Rote Erde. The primary aim was for it to host matches during the 1974 FIFA World Cup. Construction began in 1971 and lasted for three years, officially opening in April 1974. It became famous for its steep stands and close proximity to the pitch, allowing for an incredible and sometimes hostile atmosphere.

Since its construction, BVB Stadion Dortmund has undergone a variety of expansions and renovations. Upgrades took place to prepare the stadium for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, which included new and improved seating, amenities and roofing to cover supporters. The capacity was also expanded to 81,365, making it the largest stadium in the country.

These days, BVB Stadion Dortmund is known for hosting Borussia Dortmund. The south terrace hosts the most passionate supporters as part of the Yellow Wall. It is the largest terrace for standing supporters in Europe, holding over 24,000 fans on matchdays.

Aside from hosting BVB games, BVB Stadion Dortmund has historically hosted matches during international tournaments that are held in Germany. It hosted games during the World Cups of 1974 and 2006 and will do so again during the 2024 European Championships. The stadium also regularly hosts games for the German national team.

Aside from football, the venue has hosted some of music’s most famous stars. Artists such as David Bowie, Metallica and Bruce Springsteen have all performed at the stadium, making it one of the largest cultural hubs in Germany.

The BVB Stadion Dortmund Stands

BVB Stadion Dortmund comprises four stands. The North Stand and South Stand, in particular, are known for how steep both are, providing incredible views of the playing field. The South Stand, the most iconic of all at the stadium, is known for the Yellow Wall during German league games and hosting over 24,000 supporters.

The West Stand comprises the main amenities. This stand holds all of the changing rooms, dugouts and the tunnels through which players make their way to the pitch. This stand is also the primary location for those with hospitality tickets.

The East Stand is the section of BVB Stadion Dortmund that hosts executive boxes and seats fans in closer proximity to the pitch than the West Stand. It seats around 17,000 supporters just in this section.

For Euro 2024, UEFA has introduced three separate categories for all of its ticketing, with fans able to purchase tickets across Category 1, Category 2 and Category 3 pricing bands.

Category 1 tickets are the most expensive seats that are on offer for games at the BVB Stadion Dortmund.

Positioned in the heart of the East and West Stands, Category 1 seats are situated in a central area, which cuts off before the seats in the corners and also cuts off towards the top of the stands.

Due to the open design of the stadium, there are no seats within the Category 1 band that will offer a restricted view and being placed at the sides of the pitch, a fantastic view of the action should be guaranteed.

The next option is Category 2 tickets. Priced more cheaply than Category 1 options, Category 2 tickets are located all around the BVB Stadion Dortmund. Positioned throughout the four stands, the Category 2 seats are located in the upper tiers of each stand, slightly closer to the pitch than the Category 3 tickets.

Category 3 tickets are the cheapest on offer, with Category 3 seats situated in the top tiers behind each of the goals in the North and South Stands and in each of the corners within the ground. There are more Category 3 seats at the BVB Stadion Dortmund than in other stadiums.

Where is the best view?

Every seat inside the BVB Stadion Dortmund stadium will offer you an excellent vantage point of the match, but if we were to recommend seats for the best view then it would be for the West or East Stands.

Running alongside the side of the pitch overlooking the dugout, seats in the East stand offer you the best view of both the pitch and the rest of the stadium. You’ll also have the chance to see the players and coaches on the bench in much closer detail.

The West stand also provides great views of the full pitch from directly opposite the dugouts.

Where are the cheapest seats?

Due to the fact that Euro 2024 tickets are sold out and only available on a small number of exchange platforms, there are no seats that will be cheaper than others. In the regular German season, the top tiers behind each goal contain the cheapest seats.

If this is my first visit, where should I sit?

If you have never been to the stadium before, the best places to sit are in the East or West Stands. In these seats, you are given the best view of the pitch, overlooking the rest of the stadium.

However, the iconic Yellow Wall, located in the South Stand, is well worth sitting in for a first time attendee. Though the atmosphere will likely be different to Dortmund’s club matches, the opportunity to say that you have been in the Yellow Wall is not one to miss.

Can I get tickets to games at Euro 2024?

If you haven’t already purchased tickets for Euro 2024 games at the BVB Stadion Dortmund, then entry may be difficult.

The first sales of tickets took place in October 2023, with further sales taking place in December 2023 and then again in March and April 2024 for fans of qualified nations.

Some tickets will be resold leading up to the game or via ticket exchanges, so it is worth keeping an eye on official Euro 2024 platforms to check when tickets may go on sale. They will likely be few and far between and so you will need to act quickly to find them.

Is there access for disabled users?

What do I need to do in case of an emergency?

In the unlikely event of an emergency, please reach out to a first responder or volunteer for immediate assistance.

There will be a variety of support services, and response mechanisms will be in place at EURO 2024 to ensure all fans can enjoy their time at the stadium safely.

Can I still turn up without a ticket?

It is not recommended that you arrive at BVB Stadion Dortmund without a ticket, as the venue’s area is not designed to hold more supporters than tickets sold.
