Sepp-Herberger-Stadion – stadium description

The ground in Waldhof district played Home to Waldhof Mannheim SV’s games since 1924. It wasn’t until 1993 that the club moved their first squad to newly built Carl-Benz-Stadion, leaving this as secondary venue for the youth.

With one covered stand that holds club offices, the stadium couldn’t meet league requirements in 1990s, though earlier it staged matches at various levels.

Until 1996 it was known simply as Stadion am Alsenweg, but later gained patronage of Sepp Herberger, famous coach born in Mannheim, who won World Cup with Germany.
