Signal-Iduna-Park (Westfalenstadion)

Westfalenstadion was built from 1971 to 1974 for the World Cup 1974.
The pre-fabricated stadium cost DM 31.7m and seated 54,000 people.
No structural change was made until the early 1990s.
In 1995, structural alteration was started when in two stages two stands were overbuilt with an upper tier.
in a third stage, the hitherto open corners of the stadium were closed,
since when strikingly yellow external steel pylons bear the stadium’s structural frame.
At the same time, the outside of the north stand was glazed and thus creating a catering area.
For the FIFA World Cup 2006, Westfalenstadion was again renovated, upgrading seats for the disabled and reconstructing VIP lounges, toilets and dressing rooms. Since then, the stadium has had a capacity of 80,000 spectators and is thus Germany’s largest football-specific stadium.
