On our travels on Sunday we passed 3 other stadiums worth mentioning – we stopped for photos, but didn’t do tours…
Mönchengladbach at Borussia-Park – they were celebrating a new season today, so had loads of festivities – but no stadium tour. We visited the fan shop – fohlenshop – from their nickname “the foals”, “die fohlen”. You can see a big inflatable foal called Jünter below!
Bayer Leverkusen – impressive-looking stadium – BayArena. Formed & sponsored by Bayer, just as PSV was by Philips. They’ve been runners-up in the Bundesliga a few times, and won the UEFA cup once in the 80’s.
Paderborn – a smaller team, they had a rise to fame, promoted to the Bundesliga for a season (2014-15), followed by 2 relegations!! They play at Benteler arena.
