One million euros invests Borussia Dortmund in the Stadium Red Earth, which opened 1926 earlier home playing facility of the first team in the shadow of the Signal Iduna Park. The BVB will install a lawn heating and a drainage system.

The part of BVB starts as soon as the substrate is tested for mining damage. Another world war bomb was already defused and eliminated by a warning resource service.

“If the damage is eliminated in the substrate and filled possible cavities, we come to the game as BVB. Then we want to install a lawn heating and a drainage system and renew the lane ceiling,” said Christian Hockenjos, director organization at BVB.
