The long wait is over for some of the most patient BVB fans, who are now finally getting their reward for their lasting loyalty!
In addition to the 242 season ticket contracts that were terminated by either fans or the club at the end of last season, Borussia Dortmund have created an additional season ticket contingent of 500 places. That takes the number of season tickets for the 2018/19 campaign to a total of 742, which will be entirely reallocated via the waiting list.
The newly-available season tickets will be reassigned to fans down to position 426 on the waiting list for seats and down to position 313 on the waiting list for standing places. Season ticket places will be automatically allocated within the ticket system. For organisational reasons, a procedure whereby individuals can select their own place is not permitted.
"Our aim is to continue this path we have started on and to make the reassignment of season tickets as fair and transparent as possible," said Matthias Naversnik, the Head of Ticketing at BVB. "But this promotion of fairness also means that places on the waiting list will be foregone if the season ticket offer is rejected. We know that some fans would like to be experiencing the BVB matches from a certain position in the stands, but at the same time we maintain that the main thing is for everyone to support our BVB with passion – and regardless of where they are sitting in the most beautiful stadium in the world. Together with the new BVB season ticket holders, we're already looking forward to the first matchday and to a successful season in 2018/19."
Those who currently occupy the above-mentioned places on the waiting list will receive a reservation letter along with a season ticket subscription contract by post in the coming days. Additionally, the BVB fans in question will be informed by e-mail that a season ticket offer is on its way by post. The completely filled-out subscription contract must be returned to BVB in writing (by letter, fax or e-mail) within 14 days. The SEPA payment will be debited on 1 August 2018 and then the season tickets will be dispatched.
