Borussia Dortmund will introduce the “BVB”-WiFi in the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK with immediate effect. Starting with the home game against SC Paderborn tomorrow every visitor to the stadium will be able to login to the internet free of charge and have access to all data services. At the same time the official BVB-application (Android-Link/iOS-Link) will provide a free of charge update, which will be an additional match day-mode. This so called “holiday-mode” will make it possible for all Borussia Dortmund fans to receive more Black Yellow information and services on match days.
Borussia Dortmund has made it possible for over 80 000 people – the population of an average small town – to go online using modern technology. About 46 000 people can retrieve information at the same time. This is thanks to the Champion partners HUAWEI, who will install 900 send and receive stations and who have laid 40 km of cables and Unitymedia, who have attached a 10 Gigabit broadband cable to the stadium. They are responsible for what will now be the most extensive WiFi project in any stadium in Germany.
And this is how you login when you are in the stadium:
1. Select "BVB"-WiFi (WLAN)
2. Agree to the terms and conditions
3. Press the WiFi (WLAN)-button – and that’s it!
A nice action for the Paderborn game: Unitymedia will donate one Euro to the charity foundation “leuchte auf” for every device that is logged in by half time.
Along with the launch of the WiFi in the stadium, Borussia Dortmund will extend its official application with a match day-mode where the BVB fans can decide how they will follow the match:
1. „I am in the stadium“
2. „I am following the game live on TV/radio“
3. „I am on the road and only need the most important info“
This so called “holiday-mode” starts every match day at 9:09hrs and will be there for the fans right up until the evening – starting as off tomorrow, Saturday, 18th April.
And here is an exclusive insight into the holiday-mode of the app:
The app automatically switches to the “holiday-mode” at 9:09hrs in the morning. Here you can decide how you will experience the match day: “on TV/listening to radio”, “in the stadium” or “on the road” – you get just the information that you need; from morning until evening!
So we will keep you up to date all day long with all Black Yellow information!
There will be selected news items for every group. This means for example fans coming to the stadium will get info about the weather and traffic updates...
...and of course exclusive offers that you can only get from the stadium WiFi.
During the match the app in the stadium will of course be “on hold” – however if you are on the road you will of course get all the info!
We will be with you for the complete match day! On every match day – whether at home or away from home!
And what is most important!
