History and description

It hosted its first event in June 2004. The Merkur Spiel Arena, formerly known as ESPRIT arena, was built between 2002 and 2004. It replaced the old Rheinstadion. It hosted its first event in June 2004. The city of Düsseldorf's bid to use the arena as a playing venue during the 2006 World Cup was rejected. The total project costs, including surrounding infrastructure, amounted to 218 million.

The first match at the stadium, a league match between Fortuna Düsseldorf and Union Berlin, was played on 10 September 2004. The stadium officially opened a few months later, on 18 January 2005, with a friendly match between Fortuna and Bayern Munich.

Until 2009, the stadium was known as LTU Arena. However, in 2009 a new sponsorship deal was agreed with clothing manufacturer Esprit, and so the stadium became ESPRIT Arena. In 2018, the stadium received a new naming rights deal and was renamed Merkur Spiel Arena.

Since 2019, the Merkur Spiel Arena has been the home stadium for KFC Uerdingen while their home Grotenburg-Stadion is being renovated.

How to get to the Merkur Spiel Arena

The Merkr Spiel Arena is located in north Düsseldorf on the banks of the river Rhine. It lies slightly more than 5 kilometers from Düsseldorf's historic center and almost 7 kilometers from the city's main railway station (Hauptbahnhof). Düsseldorf International Airport is situated just north-east of the stadium. From there, it's a 10-minute walk to the stadium.

Address: Arena Straße 1, 40474 Düsseldorf

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Merkur Spiel Arena

The Merkur Spiel Arena is located in a quiet area with few entertainment options nearby. Düsseldorf's old town, however, is full of bars and restaurants and only a 15-minute metro ride away. The hotel is principally aimed at business travellers who are located near the nearby conference center, and accordingly it is priced accordingly. The FFFZ Hotel Tagungshaus is also located close by and is somewhat cheaper.

Some other hotels are not far north of the stadium. They would be nice if you have to catch a flight from Düsseldorf Airport the day after the match. Hotel Destination 21 and Air Hotel Wartburg are some of the options.

If you have time to spare, staying in the city center of Düsseldorf may be more enjoyable though. There is a wide range of hotels that come in all pricing categories.

Fortuna Dusseldorf Tickets

Tickets for Fortuna Düsseldorf matches can be bought online, at the Fan-Shop at the Paul-Janes-Stadion, or from one of the other sales points. A ticket for the standing terrace costs thirteen dollars. Seats range in price from seventeen dollars for one at the upper corners to fifty six dollars for a central seat at the main stand.

The experience of attending a game at the station opposite Esprit Arena was very nice. The stadium itself was very nice, and the crowd was also quite pleasant.
