andy-s' review of Ruhrstadion

VfL Bochum 1848 v 1.FC Heidenhelim 1846
Bundesliga 2
Vonovia Ruhrstadion, Castroper Straße 145, 44791 Bochum
Attendance: 14,726
2 v 1 (2 v 0)
This is a good modern ground, a lot of concrete, but good for football.


The ground is not that far from the city, close to a dual carriageway and on bus routes.
There are a number of car parks close-by, but also plenty of free on-street parking.


Good ground, good view and good sightlines.
The seating was a little dirty and could do with a hose down.


Good fanshop under the main stand and smaller ones around the ground.
Plenty of toilets.
Free newspaper style programme.
A lot of activities going on for kids.
Pictures of former players on the concrete pillars.

Food & Drink

Plenty of outlets, inside and outside the ground. A few cafes locally.

Police & Stewards

Usual German police presence.
Stewards were fine.


Good atmosphere provided by both sets of fans, despite it not being close to a sell-out.
No trouble.
