Description: Sportpark Ronhof
First phase of Sportpark Ronhof redevelopment covered by StadiumDB lasted not even three months (2012) and made the old 1997 temporary southern stand disappear and be replaced by much larger, covered structure.
Still erected mostly with prefabricated steel elements and covered with corrugated sheet, this one is much heavier with the roof alone weighing some 300 tons. But more important is the increased number of seats that are currently at 7,500 instead of previous 4,500.
In early 2016 preparations to replace the main grandstand began. At 65 years old, the structure was the oldest throughout the Bundesliga. New one will provide much better facilities for players, media and corporate clients as well, replacing also the VIP pavilion in the north-western corner.
New construction: See the new grandstand in Fürth grow
We’ve shown you the south stand rising, now it’s time for western main grandstand at Sportpark Ronhof. It might still be among 2. Bundesliga’s smallest, but it’s a constantly improving stadium.
