SIGNAL IDUNA PARK
SIGNAL IDUNA PARK on Strobelallee is Germany’s largest football stadium with a capacity of exactly 81,360. The stadium is known as “the temple” by fans and regularly dubbed “the most beautiful stadium in the country” by the press, professionals and VIPS alike – has been one of the largest and most comfortable stadia in Europe since the third expansion phase was completed. A long process of construction and conversion reached its peak when the stadium was renovated in the run-up the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Yet works are carried out on the stadium every summer.
• Opened: 1974
• Capacity: 81,360 (24,454 standing)
• Home team: Borussia Dortmund
The Radisson Blu hotel in Dortmund will be the event hotel for ESSMA’s Safety Management workshop. The hotel lies between Westfalenpark, Westfalenhallen exhibition grounds and Signal Iduna Park stadium. It offers stylish rooms, a health club with indoor pool, a restaurant and a business centre. Westfalenpark Underground Station is just 200 m from Dortmund’s Radisson Blu. Dortmund city centre is a 4-minute train journey away.
“It’s been a very good learning experience to hear from other countries and other clubs, so we are very happy with the first part of the workshop. It was nice to be able to walk around in the stadium and see what the presentations are showing, you see that in real life afterwards.”
Kasper Kragh – Security Advisor Divisionsforeningen, Danish League
“It’s been fascinating to meet different groups of different countries, not only football clubs but the football federations and associations.”
Graham Griffin – Former Steward Training & Recruitment Manager Arsenal FC
“If you’re talking to other people you get a different view and that also helps us to find different solutions or probably better solutions with the experience of the stadium experts.”
Roland Meier – Head of Panomera Multifocal Sensor Systems Dallmeier
