In light of the current COVID-19 infection situation in Germany, Borussia Dortmund have also cancelled advance ticket sales for next Tuesday's UEFA Champions League match against Turkish club Besiktas.

Due to the current infection situation, the federal and state governments agreed at a digital conference on Thursday that attendance at stadiums will be limited to one third of the stadium's overall capacity and no more than a maximum of 15,000 spectators. For SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, Germany's largest stadium with a capacity of 81,365, this means the maximum permitted capacity of 15,000 spectators will use up just 18.4% of the stadium's overall capacity. 

Following this decision, a new advance sale of tickets for the match in Europe's elite club competition will start in BVB's online ticket shop on Saturday (4 December) at 14:00 CET. Season ticket holders and club members are activated for the advance sale and can purchase up to six tickets.

Only seated tickets will be available. Seating in SIGNAL IDUNA PARK will be in the four-seat chessboard pattern that was used at the beginning of the season. The 15,000 seats will be distributed over the four lower tiers and the north upper tier. The 2G rules apply to all spectators.

Due to the current infection situation and the fact that children and young people are currently not sufficiently immunised, we have also decided with a heavy heart to cancel the BVB Christmas Caroling - our traditional family event - planned for 12 December.

Fans who had already purchased tickets for the match against Besiktas or for the Christmas Singing will receive a full refund on their payment method within 14 days.
