|Other names||Tabak-Sportplatz (-1997)|
|Address||Straßerau 3, 4020 Linz, Österreich|
Located just north east of downtown Linz, the stadium was originally called Tabak-Sportplatz. In summer of 1997 the name was changed to Donauparkstadion, originating from the Danube Park in which the ground sits. Yes, the stadium is just 50 meters away from the famous river, at the end of the promenade.
Although its within the historical part of Linz and home to one of the city's most known football club, FC Blau-Weiss, the stadium never earned proper facilities. Despite drawing well over 1,500 people on occasions, it only has one grandstand with 3 rows, offering cover to some 400 people. Everyone else gathers around the field.
Linz: Stadium is being built on the warehouse rooftop
This is the second venue under construction in Linz. Interestingly, a furniture warehouse will be created under the stadium, which means that the pitch will have to be raised above street level.
Austria: Another stadium in Linz soon under construction
LASK recently announced the creation of a new stadium, now it's time for Blau-Weiß. On January 21, the cornerstone will be laid for the construction of the venue, which will be built right next to the Danube River.
