History and description

The venue was originally built with a capacity of 50,000 and was the home of FC Bayern Munich, who played their first competitive match here on 7 September 1954 against Stuttgarter Kickers. The stadium was renovated in 2005 and again in 2016 with the replacement of the existing east stand. It now has a capacity of 73,000. BayArena, originally called Ulrich-Haberland-Stadion, is a stadium that replaced Bayer's previous home Bayer Sportplatz. The venue was originally built with a capacity of 50,000 and was the home of FC Bayern Munich from 1954 to 2004. In 2005, BayArena underwent renovations that increased its capacity to 73,000. The stadium underwent another renovation in 2016 that replaced an existing east stand and increased the stadium's capacity to 83,000. The first match played there was between 1. FC Köln and Borussia Mönchengladbach on the 2nd of August 1958.

When Bayer promoted to the Bundesliga in 1979, they built a new temporary East Stand. Though more significant improvements were needed to successfully compete at the highest level, this stand proved to be a successful step in the right direction.

In 1986, the club undertook a redevelopment program that included the reconstruction of a new West Stand, continued construction of the East Stand, and was finally completed with both ends.

In 1997, the works were completed and the stadium was able to hold a capacity of 22,500 people. One year later, in 1998, the stadium's name was changed to BayArena.

A new BayArena, however, soon turned out to be too small for the increasing fanbase of the club, and as a result an expansion project was announced costing ?70 million.

This caused the capacity of the stadium to be increased from 16,000 to 40,000. Construction of the new building began in 2007 and included the addition of an extra tier, conversion of part of the seats into standing places, and construction of a new roof. This has resulted in an increase in stadium capacity from 16,000 to 40,000.

The roof supports itself from the exterior of the stadium, which means that future capacity increases will be relatively easy.

How to get to the BayArena

It is a large, modern arena that has hosted concerts and sporting events. Even though the stadium lies adjacent to the A1, it does not have its own exit. The stadium is best reached from the A3. Take exit 24 Leverkusen and turn east onto the Willy Brandt Ring. Turn left onto the Kalkstraße, turn left again onto the Gustav-Heinemann-Straße, and, after passing underneath the A3, right onto the Bismarckstraße.

Alternatively, take exit 22 Leverkusen-Opladen, turn right onto the Bonner Straße, direct right again onto the Europaring, go under the A3 and left onto the Bismarckstraße. Continue for about a kilometre and, after having gone underneath the A1, you will reach the stadium.

The BayArena is located about 10 minutes away from a S-Bahn stop in Leverkusen, which is served by line 6. The trip from Cologne and Düsseldorf takes about half an hour.

Can one take a train from Cologne's main railway station and get off at Leverkusen Schlebusch station? Yes, this can be done in just 15 minutes by taking the train to Leverkusen and then getting off at Schlebusch station. From there it is a short walk to the stadium.

Address: Bismarckstraße 122, 51373 Leverkusen

I went to see Leverkusen vs Leipzig in October. I travelled from Dusseldorf by train to Leverkusen and then walked through the local park to get to the BayArena.

Everything runs smoothly here and the atmosphere is very relaxed and family-friendly. You can use your credit card everywhere so there's no need for those pesky stadium cards. The view from upper seats is great and enough terrace action to keep you entertained.

After I got on the same train to Cologne, I found that the stadium was very nice and modern. The friendly fans were welcoming and it was easy to find places to eat and drink. You can not use cash inside the ground, only cards are accepted. After the game, you can return your card to get your money back.

You are not allowed to use cash inside the stadium. Only cards are accepted(you need to get one card and load it with cash). You can return this card after the game to get your money back.

I have recently seen your new stadium and I am sad to see the old ground structure has gone. I loved the fact that your old floodlights were outside the ground on huge poles leaning in and above the away supporters heads in the ground were ceiling heaters, like the old electric coiled bars you used to see in household electric bar fires. Now our Highbury Ground has gone too, but I will never forget it. I keep an eye on your results and your my favourite club after Arsenal. Best wishes to all staff, players and fans Derek.
