Starting signal for EURO 2024 in Germany! The ten venues are all state-of-the-art arenas in which the Bundesliga or Bundesliga 2 will be played. Regardless of the stadium, it will be for sure an interesting play. Like placing a bet at 22Bet.


Olympic Stadium Berlin

Club: Hertha BSC

Capacity: 74,475 spectators

Berlin’s Olympiastadion is the only Bundesliga stadium without a standing area. The reason for this is the strict monument protection regulations to which the complex, which was built for the 1936 Olympic Games, is subject. Accordingly, a sensitive approach had to be taken during the renovation between 2000 and 2004. The old natural stones were individually sandblasted, enabling seventy percent of the historic structure to be preserved. The tartan track was dyed blue at the request of Hertha BSC. Fears that waterfowl might land in the stadium as a result did not materialize.

Allianz Arena Munich

Club: FC Bayern Munich

Capacity: 75,000 spectators in the Bundesliga, 70,000 internationally

The trademark of the Allianz Arena are the 2760 illuminated foil cushions. Originally, the cushions could only be illuminated in blue, white or red, but in summer 2014 the cushions were retrofitted with LED technology and can now shine in all colors. During the conversion, more than 300,000 LEDs were distributed over an area of 26,000 square meters. The radiance is so great that the light can even be seen on mountain peaks 75 kilometers away. There is also high-tech inside the stadium: Blocks 112 and 113 of the south curve are equipped with retractable seats that can be lowered into the ground for international matches. In addition, the four-storey parking garage in the south of the arena is the largest parking garage for a soccer stadium in Europe with around 9,800 parking spaces.

Rheinenergie Stadium Cologne

Club: 1. FC Köln

Capacity: 50,000 spectators in the Bundesliga, 46,195 internationally

The former “Sportpark Müngersdorf” was opened in 1923 at the behest of Konrad Adenauer and was the largest German sports facility until the construction of the Berlin Olympic Stadium in 1936. After bad experiences during the renovation in the 1970s, when FC Köln had to play its home games at the Radrennbahn, the old Müngersdorf stadium was renovated while matches were still being played. After 30 months of construction, the last stand was opened on January 31, 2004. The Rheinenergie Stadium’s trademark are the illuminated towers at the corners of the stands, which can also be illuminated in color since October 2016 following the switch to LED lighting. At FC home matches, they now shine in red and white.

Deutsche Bank Park Frankfurt

Club: Eintracht Frankfurt

Capacity: 58,000 spectators in the Bundesliga, 53,800 internationally

Today’s arena is the fourth stadium to be built on the same site. The original Waldstadion was opened in May 1925. Between 2002 and 2005, the stadium was renovated while matches were still being played. The running track was removed and the spectator stands were moved much closer to the pitch. Before the renovation, spectators sat up to 125 meters away from the edge of the pitch. Now it is a maximum of 60 meters. It is also worth noting that in addition to Eintracht, the Frankfurt stadium has also hosted at least one home game for 1. FSV Mainz 05, FSV Frankfurt, SV Wehen-Wiesbaden and even local rivals Kickers Offenbach. Following the expansion of the upper tier of the north-west curve in summer 2023, the stadium now offers even more capacity for enthusiastic soccer fans.

Volksparkstadion Hamburg

Club: Hamburger SV

Capacity: 57,000 spectators in the Bundesliga, international 51,500

The conversion of the old Volkspark stadium with its running track into a pure soccer stadium began in 1998. Architect Manfred O. Steuerwald practically operated on an open heart, as the stadium was completely rebuilt while matches were still being played. Remarkably, the pitch was rotated by 90 degrees. The Hamburger SV fans therefore moved from the West Curve, which is now a straight line, to the North Stand. After its completion in the summer of 2000, the Hamburger Arena was one of the most modern stadiums in Germany. It was not until the run-up to the 2006 World Cup that most clubs modernized their old stadium or built a completely new arena.
