Borussia-Park (German pronunciation: [boˈʁʊsi̯a ˈpaʁk]; official name "Stadion im Borussia-Park") in Mönchengladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany is the home stadium of German Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach. It replaced the smaller Bökelberg stadium, which no longer satisfied modern safety standards and international requirements, in July 2004.

Borussia-Park has a capacity of up to 54,057, of which 16,145 are standing-room only due to popular demand. For international games, the standing room is converted into temporary seating for a total seating capacity of 46,249.[citation needed]

The new stadium features amenities such as VIP lounges, fanshop and sports bar, and cost 85 million euro to construct.

Despite its large capacity and relative youth, the stadium missed out on holding matches during the 2006 World Cup, which Germany hosted. It was the largest capacity Bundesliga stadium to do so.
