Borussia Dortmund screening Champions League Final in city centre

Ahead of the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, Borussia Dortmund have announced that the match will be broadcast at three locations in the city. Dortmund will be looking to win their second Champions League title, following their first triumph back in 1997.

Borussia Dortmund screening Champions League final in three locations across city

There will be a public screening of the Champions League final in the following three locations in Dortmund: Fredenbaum-Platz (Eberstraße festival ground), Hansaplatz and Westfalenhallen 3 and 4. Fredenbaum-Platz will open at 16:00 CEST on the day of the game and will show the match on a 95-square-metre (sqm) screen in front of 20,000 fans.

Hansaplatz will open three hours later, and the game will be shown in front of a 53sqm screen for free, like Fredenbaum-Platz. Finally, Westfalenhallen 3 and 4 will open their doors at 18:00 CEST. This venue can hold 11,000 spectators and will have live music and a DJ for entertainment. Tickets to watch the match at this viewing spot cost just over €9.

Dortmund offer travel advice for supporters

A cultural festival called “Extrashicht” and a beer festival will take place on the same day at Friedensplatz in Dortmund. As a result, public transport will be busy in the city, and the club have provided fans with travel advice on 1 June.

Dortmund said: “On 1 June, the “Extraschicht” cultural festival and a large beer festival will take place at the same time on Friedensplatz, so public transport will be crowded at times. All DSW21 light rail lines will run longer and take passengers from the city centre to the outer districts until at least 01:00 CEST. The U45 will run to support the U41 to “Fredenbaum” or from “Fredenbaum” until after 01:00 CEST.

“On the U45/U46 lines, DSW21 will operate two-car trains every 10 or 15 minutes from 18:00 CEST onwards. Due to construction work, the U43 light rail trains coming from Dorstfeld/Stadtmitte will only run as far as Wambel/Pothecke. From the “Rüschebrinkstraße” stop, DSW21 will operate buses to and from Wickede.”

The City of Dortmund website have provided more information about the public viewing spots for the final here.
