Until 1926 the Borussia Dortmund Football Club played on the"White Meadow", situated in the northern part of Dortmund. Afterwards the club moved to the "Red Earth" stadium on the Strobelallee. The fans unfortunately had to wait 17 years for a victory over their arch rivals Schalke 04 which finally happened in November 1943. The "Red Earth" stadium was used by Borussia Dortmund until 1974. With the construction of the new Signal Iduna Park directly next to it, a new era started for the football club, and the"Red Earth" stadium became an athletics stadium. And to this day this sports arena provides flair and atmosphere for up to 28,000 spectators.
