Notes on Ticket Sharing

  • Tickets are sold exclusively for private, non-commercial use by the customer. Any commercial resale of the tickets by the customer is prohibited and is reserved solely for the club.
  • If the tickets are passed by illegally, the club is entitled to block these tickets and to refuse the ticket holder access to the stadium without compensation or to expel him from the stadium, to impose a ticket block of up to a maximum of five years and/or a contractual penalty of up to 2,500.00€. 
  • The exchange and return of tickets is generally excluded. If a customer cannot use his ticket for personal reasons (e.g. illness), a transfer of the ticket to a third party is permitted as an exception, if the third party is informed accordingly about our ATGB (ATGB) (

Notes on ticket purchase via third-party providers

  • Fortuna Düsseldorf explicitly warns against illegal ticket trading and distances itself from overpriced offers from third-party providers.
  • These offers on online platforms such as viagogo, Ebay or StubHub - which can also be purchased for sold-out matches - violate the General Ticket Terms and Conditions (ATGB) of Fortuna Düsseldorf.
  • Accordingly, the club reserves the right to take legal action, including the blocking of the tickets as well as the customer himself.
  • Fortuna strongly advises against the purchase of tickets via internet platforms or other illegal sources. On the one hand, fans run the risk of being deceived by counterfeit, invalid or blocked tickets. On the other hand, the purchase of tickets at an overpriced amount promotes the "black market trade".

How to behave if you are denied access to the stadium with invalid tickets:

  • Fortuna Düsseldorf cannot guarantee admission to the stadium after the purchase of invalidly purchased tickets through a third party, as the club is not the ticket provider in this case. 
  • New tickets can be purchased for non-sold-out matches.
  • You will receive a form from us, on which we prove that we have officially blocked the tickets. You can submit this to the respective third party and reclaim the money.
  • For sold-out games, we cannot guarantee that there are still alternative places left for sale. The club must assume that the purchased tickets could be used twice, so that the same seats cannot be used again.  

Group enquiries

  • Only possible with open sale, requests for top matches can unfortunately not be considered.
  • First sale: members only (4-6 weeks before), if tickets are still available the open sale starts afterwards.
  • Inquiry by e-mail to 
  • North Tribune /Price: around 25,00€ per ticket (may vary from game to game)

  • All information about VIP tickets and business boxes can be found at: > business > hospitality > uebersicht
  • For inquiries please contact

After entering the arena and exhibition grounds, drivers follow the signs to car park P1. Parking will cost you on matchday an amount of 5,00€. From there you get to the north-west entrance. Please note that car park P2 is exclusively reserved for guest fans.

If you arrive as a group, please use car park P1 and not car park P2, which is actually used by our guest fans. 

How to get there with the transport networks – KombiTicket (by tram/train/bus)

For all matches of Fortuna Düsseldorf the fare is already included in the ticket price, there is no need to buy an additional ticket within the VRR network room. The KombiTicket is valid on the day of the event from your place of departure, directly to the Merkur Spiel-Arena for the match, until the end of operation on the following day (3 a.m.) and offers free travel on all means of transport including 2nd class train. You can find a graphic overview of the area of validity here.

On Fortuna matchdays, the U78 Rheinbahn line (tram) usually takes you to the Merkur Spiel-Arena every five minutes. The stop is called "MERKUR SPIEL-ARENA/Messe-Nord". From there you can get to the south entrance. After the games, special Rheinbahn trams depart every two and a half minutes from the station. The journey time between Düsseldorf main station and the Merkur Spiel-Arena station is approx. 15 minutes and is the recommended way of transport for arriving and departing.

Düsseldorf International Airport (170 destinations worldwide) is only three kilometres away. Depending on the traffic situation, the taxi ride from there to the Merkur Spiel-Arena takes about 10-15 minutes and costs around 10,00 €.
