    Football stadiums in the Bundesliga are on average 90% full, making this league one of the most visited leagues in the world. Most stadiums have already played host to major matches from the Champions League, Europa League and the European Championship. The seats are covered in all stadiums.

    All football arenas have goal-line technology and VAR systems. Nevertheless, the German Football Association wants to invest more than €300 million towards the final tournament. New stadiums do not have to be built, because all buildings meet the requirements of UEFA.

    10 stadiums for Euro 2024

    The 10 stadiums during the European Championship 2024 in Germany are: []

    • Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin)
    • Cologne Stadium (Cologne)
    • BVB Stadium Dortmund (Dortmund)
    • Dusseldorf Arena (Dusseldorf)
    • Frankfurt Arena (Frankfurt)
    • Arena AufSchalke (Gelsenkirchen)
    • Volksparkstadion Hamburg (Hamburg)
    • Leipzig Stadion (Leipzig)
    • Munich Football Arena (Munich)
    • Stuttgart Arena (Stuttgart)

    The names of many stadiums contain a sponsor of the home club, with which UEFA has no contract. The current names may therefore not be used during the European main tournament.

    The football stadiums are in the host cities where the heart of the tournament beats. The locations have not only been selected because of the optimal conditions on the field, but also because of the conditions around the field. Off the field, VIPs, sponsors and football fans celebrate the game and gather to watch matches.

    Not all football stadiums can be empty within 8 minutes in an emergency, but they can be full within an hour.

    9 of the 10 proposed stadiums also hosted the 2006 World Cup matches. The Düsseldorf Arena has now been added. The Fussbal Arena in Munich also played during the European Championship in 2020.

    Capacity stadiums European Championship 2024

    Berlin has the largest capacity, with Munich and Dortmund also providing access for at least 60,000 football fans.

    Stadium Capacity
    Olympiastadion Berlin 70,033
    Cologne Stadium 46,922
    BVB Dortmund Stadium 61,524
    Dusseldorf Arena 46,264
    Frankfurt Arena 48,057
    Arena AufSchalke 49,471
    Volksparkstadion Hamburg 50.215
    Leipzig Stadion 46,635
    Munich Football Arena 66,026
    Stuttgart Arena 50,998

    2 to 6 matches will be played in each football temple, so that the load on the football fields is well distributed.

    Conditions for football stadiums

    The football stadiums of the potential host country must meet a number of conditions:

    • There must be at least 9 or 10 stadiums in which the matches can be played
    • At least 4 stadiums must have a capacity of at least 30,000 seats
    • At least 3 stadiums must have a capacity of at least 40,000 seats
    • At least 2 or 3 stadiums must have a capacity of at least 50,000 seats
    • 1 stadium must have a capacity of at least 60,000 seats
    • Joint bids are allowed, but qualification is only guaranteed for a maximum of two host countries

    The referee decides before the start of the match whether the roof of the stadium is open or closed. If the roof is closed at the start, it must remain closed until halftime or until the final signal. If the roof is open at the start, it may be closed in the meantime at the request of the referee.

    All European Championship matches must be played with artificial light in the stadiums. Furthermore, the played or remaining time may be shown on clocks, but it is not counted in the injury time.

    Replays may be shown on large screens in football stadiums, but only when the ball is out of play. The images are without sound and should not affect the game or the spectators.

    The Olympiastadion in Berlin has a capacity of 70,033 seats. Hertha BSC is the home club in this football stadium.
