As of today (Monday 11 October), tickets for the home match against Mainz 05 on Saturday (kick-off 15:30 CET) are available on open sale. The Coronavirus Protection Ordinance in force in NRW since 1 October allows 67,028 fans to attend matches in SIGNAL IDUNA PARK. BVB distinguishes between outdoor and indoor areas with regard to admission restrictions (2G/3G).
The following rules apply for the purchase of tickets:
- Each customer can buy up to six tickets.
- Only the personal details of the person purchasing the tickets are required.
- Every ticket holder must be vaccinated, recovered or tested.
- Digital proof of this must be presented upon entry to the stadium.
- The second-hand market will be open until 12:00 CET on the day of the match.
After the crowd capacity in SIGNAL IDUNA PARK was increased for the home match against FC Augsburg, 16,000 additional tickets were sold within 48 hours of the new Coronavirus Protection Ordinance coming into force. 41,000 spectators attended the match, the highest number since the outbreak of the pandemic. Borussia Dortmund has now set new guidelines for safe stadium attendance.
The state government's guidelines allow for the stadium's 52,692 seated places to be occupied to their full capacity and the 28,673 standing places to be 50% occupied. This results in a crowd capacity of 67,028 fans. In theory, this would cover both the 5% quota for away fans (10% only at full crowd capacity) as well as all 55,000 season ticket holders. In practice, however, this is impossible due to the high number of South Stand season tickets, so Borussia Dortmund continues to let the subscriptions rest and, as announced several times, will only activate them when the stadium can be at full capacity.
The admission ticket will be delivered as a Print@Home ticket and, as before, must be presented in printed form upon entry. The credit-card-sized "season ticket" still does not entitle the holder to enter the stadium. It will only be activated when a full capacity of 81,365 spectators is possible again.
