German soccer Bundesliga clubs average attendance 2018/19

Borussia Dortmund had an average of 80,820 spectators attend their home league games during the 2018/19 season, the largest average attendance in the Bundesliga. At the other end of the rankings, Freiburg averaged the lowest attendance with 23,894 fans attending their home matches.

Dortmund’s 12th man

Borussia Dortmund play their home games at Germany’s largest soccer stadium: Signal Iduna Park. The venue is known by soccer fans worldwide for its south stand (Die Südtribüne), referred to colloquially as the ‘Yellow Wall’ (Die gelbe Wand), due to it being packed on matchdays with almost 25,000 supporters all wearing the club’s famous yellow. The average attendance for Borussia Dortmund home matches has been around 80,000 for a number of years, helped by the team’s recent performances on the pitch and also value-for-money season tickets – prices are much cheaper than those for teams competing in the English Premier League.

Germany’s heavyweight clash

Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, the teams with the largest average attendances in Germany, are ranked first and second for the number of Bundesliga championships won. The rivalry between the sides is not a traditional local derby; instead it is formed on being two of the most successful sides in German soccer. Each fixture between the sides – known as ‘The Classic’ (Der Klassiker) – is fiercely contested and attracts a global television audience. Bayern Munich won the 100th Bundesliga meeting between the sides in April 2019, but the teams’ biggest battle came in the 2013 UEFA Champions League final at Wembley Stadium – the first all-German final in the history of the competition. Arjen Robben’s late winner gave Bayern Munich the trophy in a game that was watched by more than 21 million television viewers back in Germany.
