Dortmund, who have the biggest stadium in Germany, have a season ticket waiting list comprising of 50,000 fans.

The Signal Iduna Park was packed out for almost every game last term, which helped the Bundesliga edge the Premier League for the highest average attendance in Europe.

The average number of supporters at a German league game last season was 40,693 compared to the English top-flight's 35,838.
