Thank you for rating the OPEL ARENA! Outside gamedays you could easily reach the OPEL ARENA by citybus or by tram. The next stop "Hochschule Mainz" is located only 500m away.

Brilliant night just don't go anywhere at half time as the rest of the ignorant crowd don't let you back to where you were stood before, Club shop good, Bratwurst and Beer good and great atmosphere behind the goal. Lots of Fun
