Borussia-Park is a football stadium in Mönchengladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany which serves as the home stadium of Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach. It replaced the smaller Bökelbergstadion, which no longer satisfied modern safety standards and international requirements, in July 2004.
Borussia-Park has a capacity of 54,057, of which 16,145 are standing places in the terraces due to popular demand. For international games, the terraces are converted into temporary seating which reduces stadium’s seating capacity to 46,249.
The new stadium features amenities such as VIP lounges, fanshop and sports bar, and cost 85 million euro to construct.
Despite its large capacity and relative youth, the stadium missed out on holding matches during the 2006 World Cup, which Germany hosted. It was the largest capacity Bundesliga stadium not to host World Cup matches, although it did host matches in the 2011 Women’s World Cup. It faced the same destiny when there was selected venues for Germany’s first bid as united nation for the UEFA flagship event as EURO 2024.
