VfL Bochum- Rewirpowerstadion

Bochum 3-2 Sandhausen (Bundesliga 2, February 27th 2016)
Stands I’ve Been in: Ost Kurve
Ticket Price (1st Visit): 12 Euros
Attendance (1st Visit): 12,209
Address: Castroper Strasse 145, 44791, Bochum, Germany


Another German city, another good public transport. The stadium is only 2 stops from the central train station on the tram.

Ground exterior

Food & Drink

The usual at German grounds, lots of beer and bratwurst. The bratwurst especially very good!

The West Kurve at kick off

Inside the Ground

The ground has had some redevelopment, and has four steep stands in a bowl shape. Three of the sides are all seater, with some away terracing in the corner, and a large standing area behind the Ost goal.  

The Nord Tribune


Again, excellent. Even only just over a third full, the noise from the Ostkurve was pretty incessant, especially towards the end of the match as the game got more and more tight. 

The Sud Kurve

Anything Else

It seems Bochum have some sort of thing going with Leicester City, as they had a banner with both badges on, and quite a few of their fans were wearing Bochum/ Leicester half scarves which was a bit odd!

The Sud Tribune


Very relaxed place to visit, great atmosphere and a very enjoyable day.
