On the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Hertha BSC headed off on a tour of the US, visiting stadiums in Minnesota, Madison, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Goal of the “#TearDownWallsTour” was to both represent Hertha BSC as a leading German football team on the inter­national stage, as well as at the same time commemorate the Fall of the Berlin Wall in November 30 years ago. The club representatives responsible for the new stadium construction project also made use of the opportunity to visit stadium projects in Atlanta and Los Angeles together with AS+P, represented by Friedbert Greif and Matthias Schöner, in order to interact with the stadium operators responsible there on experiences gained as regards planning, construction and operation.
