APCOA and FC Schalke 04 Cooperate

- Gelsenkirchen, Germany
PCOA PARKING Deutschland will take over the management of the 6,532 outdoor parking spaces at VELTINSArena

From 1 April, APCOA PARKING Deutschland will take over the management of the 6,532 outdoor parking spaces at VELTINS Arena, the venue for all home games of FC Schalke 04, many different concerts and other events. Just in time for the upcoming home game on Saturday against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, we are already ensuring a smooth arrival and departure of the spectators. In this way, we are supplementing our portfolio with the management of parking spaces around stadiums and arenas, thus expanding our competencies.

On the parking lot, our license plate recognition is used.

This means: When driving into the parking lot, the license plate of the car is read with the help of a scanner and the parking process is started automatically. At the exit, the license plate is then scanned again and the parking process is thus terminated. If the parking fee has been paid, the system anonymizes the data after exit.

How can I pay?

  • at several pay machines on site
  • completely digital via QR code
  • Late Pay

With this concept, we want to offer fans a more efficient and pleasant arrival and departure in the future.

We are very much looking forward to the new cooperation and would like to thank all employees who make this joint project possible.
