Perfect view from every seat

Hardly any other stadium in the Bundesliga offers such proximity to the action on the pitch. The distance from the seat furthest to the centre spot is 94 metres – and that with a total capacity of 30,210. It is rare to experience top-class football as closely as at the BayArena. A new era began with the start of the stadium's rebuild on 14 December 2007, which was mainly aimed at modernisation and comfort. A state-of-the-art sports venue has arisen out of the little gem of a ground. Ultras as well as visiting fans, CEOs and families are all equally welcome at our home.
