Information for England fans about the Frankfurt Arena, where the Three Lions play Denmark in their second EURO 2024 group game.

Frankfurt Arena (Deutsche Bank Park)
Location: Frankfurt, Hesse
Opened: 21 May 1925
Capacity: 53,800

Located in southwest Germany, Frankfurt Arena – aka Deutche Bank Park in the Bundesliga – is best known as the home of Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.

First constructed around 100 years ago, the stadium has been renovated several times since then, most recently in 2005 to take the stadium’s capacity well over the 50,000 mark.

Much like the Arena AufSchalke, England have previous at Frankfurt Arena, with the stadium hosting Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side in their opening match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup against Paraguay. However, while that match ended in a 1-0 win for England, their previous competitive fixture at the venue – which took place during the Group Stages of EURO 88 – ended in a 3-1 win for the USSR.

This summer it will host five matches in total, including England’s second Group C game against Denmark on 20 June, as well as a round of 16 tie on 1 July.
