Bundesliga stadium capacities - additional information
The largest stadium in the Bundesliga is Signal Iduna Park, home to Borussia Dortmund, which has a capacity of 81,359, making it the seventh biggest stadium in Europe. The stadium was previously known as the Westfalenstadion, but was renamed Signal Iduna Park due to a sponsorship deal agreed in 2005. The stadium naming rights deal is worth an estimated 5.8 million euros annually to the club. Located on the southern terrace of the stadium is Dortmund’s legendary “Yellow Wall”, which is the largest free-standing grandstand in Europe with a capacity of almost 25,000. Dortmund’s stadium is close to capacity for most games, with an average of 80,820 fans watching each home game during the 2018/19 season. The club has a total of 55,000 season ticket holders and a reported waiting list of up to 10,000 people.
Bayern Munich’s 75,024 capacity Allianz Arena is the second largest stadium in the Bundesliga. Although Bayern’s average attendance during the 2018/19 season was some 5,000 short of Dortmund’s figure, it was the only team in the Bundesliga whose average attendance matched its stadium’s capacity. In comparison, the league-wide average attendance stood at 43,879 during the 2017/18 season. Bayern Munich season ticket prices range from 140 euros to 750 euros, with the high demand meaning there is a reported waiting list of 10,000 people.
The third largest stadium in the Bundesliga is the Olympiastadion where Hertha BSC Berlin have played their home games since 1963. The current Olympiastadion was originally built for the 1936 Summer Olympics and has a capacity of 74,400.
