Popular Dortmund stop selling season tickets

BERLIN - Borussia Dortmund stopped selling season tickets ahead of their opening Bundesliga match of the new campaign against Cologne on Saturday after a club record of more than 50,000 were sold. "A century record. 50,675 times thanks for your love," said the club website, informing fans they had suspended season-ticket sales so casual supporters could also get tickets. Dortmund, who celebrate their 100-year anniversary this season, topped the Bundesliga table for attendances last season when their 80,000-seater Signal-Iduna Park home - the biggest stadium in the country - was regularly sold out.
