And finally one important note:
After almost one and a half years of the pandemic, Borussia Dortmund are experiencing great fluctuations in terms of our volunteers. A third of the staff who will be at the stadium on Sunday have only been in the team since the start of this season, so we ask all stadium visitors for their understanding if one or two things are not running quite as smoothly as usual or as expected. Thanks in advance for your patience! (br)
