Home Matches

Our move to our new home at the Europa-Park Stadion is complete. In order for visitors to feel at home in our new stadium, we have compiled a list of answers to the most frequently asked questions below. Should you have any additional questions, please contact our fan support team (see the contact form on our website).

FAQ for our home matches

Fan items

SC Freiburg look forward to welcoming a diverse, vocal support from the stands and follow the regulations set forth under Annex 9 of the DFB’s Guidelines for Improving Security at Domestic Matches.

On matchdays, the following fan items are permitted to be brought into our stadium:

  • Small flags with PVC poles no longer than 2.0 metres;
  • Flags on telescopic poles from 2.0 metres in length;
  • Drums (fully see-through or see-through on one side) including one pair of drum sticks per drum;
  • Megaphones (including 1 set of spare batteries);
  • Two-sticks with PVC poles no longer than 2.0 metres;
  • Fan club and fence banners: Flags are permitted to be hung on the fence in front of the stands, provided there is sufficient space. The quickest and easiest location to attach a banner is from the standing sections. Advertising boards must remain uncovered. The emergency exit gates must also be kept free during the match. A suspension system of approximately 13 meters is available to help hoist banners in the away end, with an SC-provided steward on hand to assist. Banners and fence flags are prohibited in the upper tiers of the stadium.

Please note: Security checks for fans bringing in any of the above items will take place in a separate, visible area near the entrance gates.


Bag drop policy

Please note that we can only accept a limited number of items, backpacks, bags and similar objects at our bag drop locations at the Europa-Park Stadion due to space constraints. We ask that all visitors leave prohibited items either at home or in their vehicles in order to prevent long waiting times at the security checkpoints.

In particular, we would like to highlight that no large backpacks or bags are allowed to be taken into the stadium. Bags must be no larger than DIN A3 format. Bag drops are located at all entrance points and are signposted (€2 fee). SC Freiburg does not assume responsibility for any items left at these locations.

Assistance and support with the help of counselling centre "Frauenhorizonte"

Additionally, SC Freiburg work together with “Frauenhorizonte,” a specialised counselling centre against sexual violence. Any fan who experiences sexual violence during a matchday can contact the round-the-clock help line provided by Frauenhorizonte, including evenings, weekends and holidays, by calling the following number: (0761) 285 85 85). During office hours, you will be able to reach a full-time employee of the counselling centre (Monday to Thursday: 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. / Friday: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. / Calls made during evenings and on weekends will be forwarded to a cell phone number for assistance).

If you are not yet sure which steps you would like to take, Frauenhorizonte will provide you with all the necessary information either via a phone call or during a private counselling session.
