1a-View from all seats

Hardly any other stadium in the Bundesliga Offers so much proximity to the action on the pitch. The distance from the seat furthest from the centre spot is 94 m – and that with a total capacity of 30,210. Rarely can you experience top-class football as closely as at the BayArena. A new era began the start of the rebuild on 14 December 2007, which was mainly aimed at modernisation and comfort. A state-of-the-art sports venue of a model character 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.
