BVB Stadion is the home of German giants Borussia Dortmund. Synonymous with its atmospheric European nights and with the unrivalled “Die Gelbe Wand” (The Yellow Wall) it’s no surprise that the Westfalenstadion is one of the primary locations for the 2024 European Championships this summer.

Across the month-long tournament, it will host a handful of group stage and knockout matches, including the second semi-final to determine who makes the journey to Berlin on 14th July.

History of BVB Stadion

Borussia Dortmund have played at Signal Iduna Park since 1974 – the same year that the stadium hosted games at the 1974 World Cup. Altogether, the Westfalenstadion housed three group stage games and a ‘final group game’ between the Netherlands and Brazil, which famously ended 2-0 to the Dutch.

Dortmund’s stadium would also play a pivotal role in the 2006 World Cup, hosting a number of highly entertaining games, including Brazil vs Ghana in the last 16 and Germany vs Italy in the semi-finals.

At domestic level, Signal Iduna Park was given the esteemed honour of accommodating both Liverpool and Alaves in the 2001 UEFA Cup final. Liverpool won the game in spectacular fashion 5-4 with a golden goal in extra time from Delfí Geli.

The Westfalenstadion has also housed Dortmund’s improbable run to the Champions League Final in 2024. Die Schwarzgelben didn’t lose a game at home throughout the tournament, including registering big wins in the knockout stages against PSV, Atletico Madrid, and PSG.

What games will be played at BVB Stadion?

Dortmund’s stadium will host six games throughout the 2024 European Championships – including four matches in the group stages. Turkey will be the most frequent visitor to Signal Iduna Park, facing both Georgia and Portugal in Group F action, alongside returning champions Italy and one of the favourites France, both playing their final group stage games at this historic venue.
