The Tunnel At The Veltins Arena For Germany vs. The Netherlands Is Actually Incredible

The Tunnel At The Veltins Arena For Germany vs. The Netherlands Is Actually Incredible

I've seen some lovely tunnels in my time, yes I'm talking about Argentine club Aldosivi, who walk through the jaws of a giant inflatable shark on a weekly basis.

But the Veltins Arena tunnel in Germany might just be my all-time favourite.

Many fans picked up on the incredible tunnel ahead of Germany's Nations League tie against The Netherlands on Monday night, and were understandably in awe.

Imagine walking through this every home game...

This magnificent structure belongs to Bundesliga side FC Schalke, who have always maintained strong connections to local mining - so much so that they redesigned the tunnel a few years ago to replicate a coal mine.

What better way to honour the old mining communities of Gelsenkirchen than this absolute masterpiece.

Take it away.


Goals from Timo Werner and Leroy Sane gave Germany a comfortable lead in the first half, and what better way to leave the field of play after three points than this tunnel.

From the sublime to the outrageous. Modern day football peaked back in August when images of Chelsea's new look tunnel at Stamford Bridge emerged online.

We're not entirely sure if Maurizio Sarri was to blame for what has been labelled 'one of the worst things ever to happen in football', but we can safely say it won't catch on with other Premier League clubs.


Chelsea have decided to use a bunch of motivational tweets about players and stick them on the tunnel because y'know, kind words really strike feat into the opposition ahead of kick-off.

From "Morata's goal really was a thing of beauty" to the simple line "Azpilicueta is phenomenal" - it hasn't exactly gone down well with fans on Twitter.

We're just not sure about it all.
