The Bökelbergstadion (pronounced [ˈbøːkl̩bɛʁkˌʃtaːdi̯ɔn]) was a football stadium in Mönchengladbach, Germany.

History[edit]

It was the home of Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach before Borussia-Park opened in 2004. The stadium had a capacity of up to 34,500 people. The inauguration took place on 20 September 1919 under the name "Westdeutsches Stadion". The site's nickname then, was "de Kull" (the gravel-pit). The name "Bökelbergstadion" was established on 28 July 1962, after Borussia Mönchengladbach won the DFB-Pokal for the first time. The stadium was completely demolished by August 2006. Construction of new residential buildings went ahead in 2007.
