     der Bundespolizeiinspektion Kaiserslautern -

Next Friday, May 20, 2022 at Betzenberg, the focus is on promotion to the second division. In the first round of the relegation round, the 1. FC Kaiserslautern Dynamo welcomes the Dresden team to the Fritz Walter Stadium; Kick-off is at 20.30. The second stage in Dresden is scheduled for Tuesday 24 May.

“Full house” is expected on Betzenberg for the first stage, all tickets were sold in advance. This means that around 48,000 football fans will make the pilgrimage to Kaiserslautern. Therefore, in addition to after-work and weekend traffic, a large amount of traffic must be expected in and around Barbarossa town on Friday. The police therefore recommend that all visitors arrive as early as possible and provide sufficient time.

Important Note: Due to an event, the Exhibition Center will not be available for parking. And because the journey to the game takes place during normal opening hours, the regular parking spaces in the urban area should also be largely occupied. Especially fans from the region are therefore advised to use public transport to get to the city.

Visitors to the game arriving via the autobahn should use the A6 if possible due to the construction site situation and the exit at KL-Ost. Here is the sign for the parking lot “Schweinsdell”. The Park & ​​Ride service from there starts at 18.00 parallel to the opening of the stadium. The buses run every 5 to 10 minutes.

Further information about the P + R service is provided by 1. FCK on its website https://fck.de/de/stadion/anfahrt/ and by the city of Kaiserslautern at https://s.rlp.de/9Vb8O

The same goes for those arriving via the motorway: start early and make room for time buffers! The reason: The A6 between Kaiserslautern-West and Enkenbach-Alsenborn is currently being renovated. Delays and congestion can occur in this area.

For the headquarters of the West Palatinate Police and the Federal Police, the safety of all stadium visitors (and of course all other guests in the urban area) is the top priority. A meeting between fans from both teams should be avoided as much as possible, which means that the police separate the fans – as far as they can be seen – on the way to and from the stadium.

Due to the expected high number of visitors, there may be short-term closures around Elf-Freunde-Kreissel before and after the match. The associated waiting times should, of course, be kept as short as possible for everyone; However, delays cannot always be avoided. Police would like to thank all fans, residents and road users for their understanding.

To get a better overview of the traffic situation and the arrival and departure of fans, the police helicopter will also be in action on match day. Police are doing everything possible to reduce any noise pollution to a minimum.

We especially appeal to all visitors to the game to respect the rules of fair play both inside and outside the stadium. Despite all the enthusiasm, the focus should be on sports. And if you do not follow the rules of the game, you must expect the police to intervene – that means: criminal offenses will not be tolerated!

In this context, the West Palatinate Police Headquarters and the Federal Police request that any species be avoided. Pyrotechnics are dangerous and have no place in football stadiums and crowds! In the event of violations, those responsible are threatened with charges – both for (attempted) bodily injury and for violation of the Explosives Act.

In addition, the federal police announce that criminal acts on trains or stations will also be consistently reported. Anyone who disregards the rules here must expect, for example, a future transport ban with Deutsche Bahn or a nationwide stadium ban.

Special rules also apply in and around the Fritz-Walter-Stadion on match day. The city administration has set up both a “glass-free zone” and a ban on alcohol. The affected area is marked on the attached map.

Updated information is also available before, during and after the match via Kaiserslautern Police Twitter channels https://twitter.com/polizei_kl and the federal police https://twitter.com/bpol_koblenz | cri
