The BVB Stadion Dortmund, also known as Signal Iduna Park, is the home stadium of Borussia Dortmund, one of Germany’s most successful football clubs. Here are some key details about this iconic venue:

Signal Iduna Park (commercial name); traditionally known as Westfalenstadion.


It is the largest stadium in Germany, with a seating capacity of approximately 81,365 for league matches and around 65,829 for international matches due to standing areas being converted to seating. The stadium was opened in 1974 and has undergone several expansions and renovations since then. It was originally built for the 1974 FIFA World Cup.

Signal Iduna Park is renowned for its electrifying atmosphere, largely due to the “Yellow Wall” (Die Gelbe Wand) in the South Stand, which is the largest terrace for standing spectators in European football. This section alone can hold over 24,000 fans and is famous for its passionate and vocal support.

Besides hosting Borussia Dortmund’s home matches, the stadium has been a venue for numerous international tournaments, including the FIFA World Cup in 1974 and 2006, as well as the UEFA Euro 1988. It also hosts concerts and other large-scale events.

The stadium features modern amenities, including VIP areas, hospitality suites, a museum (Borusseum), and various fan shops and food outlets. Its design ensures excellent views from all seats and a fantastic matchday experience.

Signal Iduna Park is well-connected by public transport, with its own train station (Signal Iduna Park station) and close proximity to the Westfalenhallen station for the U-Bahn (subway). It also has ample parking facilities for those driving to the stadium.

Signal Iduna Park is not just a football stadium but a symbol of Borussia Dortmund’s identity and a must-visit destination for football fans around the world.
