Like a lot of other German grounds, you will pay for anything you buy inside by using the cashless ‘BayArena-Card’ system. The card can be bought from all of the many ticket windows on Bismarckstraße and don’t worry if you have forgotten to top up, there are 70 points in and around the ground!
The stadium staff offer a great variety of different tours all around the stadium. Not only can you visit all the facilities that the player use. Sometimes, the tours are even given by former players themselves. Moreover, there are special tours for kids or tours that take place 45 minutes before a home game where you will end up meeting the players in the hallways and maybe can catch a picture or two with your favorite player.
While there has been a palaver in Germany in recent years about corporate clubs, don’t be fooled into thinking that Leverkusen is one of those. They have a close relationship with pharma giant Bayer, sure, but this is very much the workers’ team rather than the bosses and they proudly call themselves the Werkelf, the Worker’s Eleven. Call them that and you’ll make a whole load of new friends.
