Description: Sparda-Bank-Hessen-Stadion

Commonly it's still referred to as Der Berg or Bieberer Berg, like its predecessor had been for 80 years. However for commercial reasons first decade of the new stadium built at the same spot is Sparda-Bank-Hessen-Stadion.

Four independent stands were designed by Bremer AG, company known for simple and cheap stadia. And indeed, this one was built in just over a year with complete expense at just €27m. This was still enough to provide commercial spaces for rent as well as 3,800 sqm of photovoltaic panels on the roof.

The 20,000 stadium can be expanded by nearly 50% if there is demand, thanks to space left in corners and between stands and roof. This number obviously includes massive terracing and despite this being common in Germany, this venue is unique in a way by having terraces right opposite the main grandstand, not behind goals.
