The Borussia Park Stadium is situated just outside the Mönchengladbach city in Germany. It is the homeground of Borussia Mönchengladbach football club and has a capacity of over 54,000.
The stadium was built as a replacement for the club’s old stadium, Bökelbergstadion, and was one of the costliest stadiums to be built in Germany, with the cost of nearly €87 million.
The home ground for the Borussia Mönchengladbach was the old Bökelbergstadio stadium before the Borussia Park was built. The construction of the stadium was completed in 2004.
The Borussia Park hosted its first match in August of the same year which was a Bundesliga match between Borussia M’Gladbach and Dortmund. The hosts lost the match 2-3.
It has hosted major Bundesliga matches since its inception in 2004. It also hosts some international matches for Germany’s national football team.
It was one of the grand venues of the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Despite being such a huge stadium, it missed out on hosting the 2006 FIFA World Cup that was conducted in Germany.
