Westfalenstadion (German pronunciation: [ˈvɛstfalənˈʃtaːdi̯ɔn]) is an association football stadium in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is the home stadium of the Borussia Dortmund football team playing in the GermanBundesliga.

The stadium is officially named Signal Iduna Park [zɪɡˈnaːl ʔɪˈduːna ˈpaʁk] under a sponsorship arrangement lasting from December 2005 until 2021, giving naming rights to the Signal Iduna Group, an insurance company. The older name Westfalenstadion derives from the former Prussian province of Westphalia, which is part of the German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia. It is one of the most famous football stadiums in Europe and was elected best football stadium by The Times for its renowned atmosphere.

It has a league capacity of 80,720 (standing and seated) and an international capacity of 65,718 (officially seats only). It is Germany's biggest stadium and the seventh biggest stadium in Europe, as well as the third-largest stadium home to a top-flight European club (behind only Camp Nou and the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu). The stadium established the European record in average fan attendance in 2004–2005 with a total of 1.354 million fans. The stadium broke this record in the 2011–2012 season with almost 1.37 million spectators. Sales of annual season tickets exceed 50,000. The Südtribüne (South Bank) is the largest extant terrace for standing spectators in European football; it is regularly full to its 24,454 capacity. Famous for the intense atmosphere it breeds, the south terrace has been nicknamed "Yellow Wall". The Borusseum, the museum of Borussia Dortmund, is located inside the stadium.

The stadium hosted matches of the 1974 FIFA World Cup and of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. It also hosted the 2001 UEFA Cup Final. Various national friendlies and qualification matches for World and European tournaments have been played there as well as matches in European club competitions.
