Since 1974 Borussia Dortmund is playing in the current stadium. It was called ‘Westfalenstadion’ till 2005. In this year the name changed to Signal Iduna Park due to the club’s financial problems. With a capacity of 81.000 Signal Iduna Park is the largest stadium in Germany. This capacity is including the biggest standing grandstand of Europe with 25.000 places. During international matches there are no standing places allowed, so during these matches the stadium has a capacity of 65.000. The standing grandstand is also called ‘Die Gelbe Wand’, which means ‘The Yellow Wall’. The fans on this side of the stadium are supporting their players the whole match and they provide an amazing atmosphere in the stadium.
