Due to the low parking capacity in the immediate vicinity of the stadium (residential area), use of the large parking garage at Bielefeld University is recommended. From the university car park, visitors can walk to the SchücoArena (15 minutes) or take the light rail line 4 (match ticket is valid as a rail ticket; stop: "Graf-von-Stauffenberg-Straße"). Buses, on the other hand, are to be parked directly at the stadium and will be directed by the police.

Larger groups will be accompanied by police. Food and drink can be purchased only near the station. In addition to the use of buses and the light rail in the inner city, your match ticket entitles you to free travel with the "OWL Verkehr GmbH" local transport services.
