Red Bull Arena construction update

Standing area in sector B | Stadium wall broken through and pedestrian bridges | Additional toilets and kiosks | New floodlights and loudspeaker system

Construction work is set to be done to the Red Bull Arena. The following changes are in the process of being made/will be made over the coming months.


  • The stadium wall by sector B will be broken through so that access to stadium can be made easier. Another fanshop will be integrated into this new entranceway.
  • In addition, four new pedestrian walkways will be built to facilitate access to the upper tiers of the stadium.
  • In future, stadium access for all visitors will be marked with a main entrance on the Festwiese (south side of the Red Bull Arena). All other entrances will still remain open.


Sector B:

  • Sector B will be converted into a standing block. The capacity of the sector will double from 5,000 to 10,000.
  • Through this development, the stadium capacity for Bundesliga games will increase to 48,000.

  • Additional places in the inner area remain an option. Nets behind the goals would then be necessary, which is why we are not considering adding these additional places.
  • In addition, additional toilets and kiosks will be built on two levels at the bell tower. Sector separation (excluding the guest area) will be lifted. This means that all fans can move freely and also use the new toilets and kiosks in sectors B and D.
  • In sector D, additional toilets are being built where the large beverage kiosk currently stands. This means the police headquarters and stadium control will be relocated.
  • The new security center will be located in the upper tier of sector A.



  • The floodlights and loudspeaker system will be replaced this summer.
  • The Red Bull Arena will be home to LTE and a good internet reception from next season. The work of network providers is ongoing and should be completed in August.


The construction work is already underway, with the major measures such as the wall being broken through, the creation of standing places, and the construction of new kiosks and toilets set to be completed by the beginning of the 2021/22 season.



  • Since 28th March, tickets can also be purchased as a mobile ticket in the RBL online ticket shop. Tickets with a QR code can then be conveniently scanned on devices at the entrance.


    Print@Home-Tickets must ALWAYS be printed out and cannot be scanned via mobile phone.
  • Since 28th March, payment via PayPal can be made in the ticket shop.
  • In May 2019, we will be offering additional season tickets for the 2019/2020 season. These new tickets will be primarily in sectors B and D.
  • There will be a number of changes and adjustments in ticketing for permanent and daily tickets, including pre-purchase periods once again being significantly simplified.
