Dortmund - Westfalenstadion

The Westfalenstadion - aka Bundesliga's Opera House - is a site to behold during Borussia Dortmund matches and averaged gates of 77,000 in 2004/05.
It was the highest figure in Europe and due in no small part to the huge terraced area in the Sudtribuhne.
The 82,500 capacity drops to 67,000 for internationals, which are all-seated.
The ground, which hosts the first semi-final, was initially built for the 1974 World Cup and has been changed since with the corners being filled in.
