Never bring an umbrella inside the stadium. Not only that it is not allowed, but on the bright side, you won’t need it! Frankfurt is one of the very few stadiums worldwide that can entirely shut their roof and create a complete arena where no rain can get in. Although it may sound weird recommending seeing a game when it rains, closing the roof creates an even better atmosphere as the chants will be louder! A magical time to witness a football match.
Like a lot of other German grounds, you will pay for anything you buy inside by using a cashless system. The card can be gotten from all of the many ticket windows around the ground and whilst it doesn’t cost anything you will have to top up at least €10 to begin with. Don’t worry if you don’t spend it all – there are refund spots around the stadium as well!
Also, it’s nice to know that on a match day – your ticket will serve as a free transport pass! No need to buy a metro ticket!
While you might call the team Frankfurt, bear in mind that almost nobody in Frankfurt does. There’s another – they would say lesser – team in the city, FSV Frankfurt, so everyone calls the big boys at the Commerzbank Arena either SGE (ess-gay-eh), Eintracht or die Adler, the Eagles. Living it up at the Hotel Commerzbank Arena, if you will.
