BVB will pay a visit to the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor on Saturday. The match will kick off at 18:30 CET, with the stadium to open two hours before kick-off. Around 2,000 fans will be supporting BVB in Darmstadt. We have compiled the most important information for BVB fans.


The away block is located on the east side of the stadium and can be reached via a small path through the woods (entrance via Böllenfalltorweg). We kindly ask you not to use the entrances to the west (Nieder-Ramstädter Str.). It is not possible to access the away area via the main entrances.
