^^Ugh, this'll make me bring up the lack of VIP facilities we discussed earlier (same reason it can't ever host a Champions League Final). This is making Westfalenstadion look terrible.:(

They clearly don't want extra hospitality facilities. There's something very beautiful in that, which is why so many cherish this stadium due to its focus on general supporters, and long may it continue.

I still dont know why they dont extend the stadium a bit. They could add a small upper tier by just adding a thin new support structure around the existing stadium. They could aquire maybe 20000 additional visitors making the 100000 full. The club is able to attract this many visitors so why not going for it? Yes, there is the stand from the stadium „Rote Erde“ right next to it, but the support structure could have like a huge arch here spanning above the tiny stand from the other stadium. I think it would be possible and it would be a better solution than building a whole new generic stadium somehwere at the edge of the city.

Since dortmund have no problem to fill 80-90k stadium, they should consider to make it 80k seated stadium.

Never gonna happen. The Südtribüne is for standing. They will not abandon this. I think even if they build a completely new stadium somwhere else in town, they will do a new Südtribüne for standing spectators. It is the heart of the fan scene and a big argument for the club to attract new players.

Sorry what?

Nobody in the active fan support wants to sit down.

The tickets are 17,50€ for a reason. I go there once a month, and will never sit.

Standing is what makes German football special.
