flyeralarm Arena – stadium description
Construction of the ground along Jupp Schunk design started in 1967 with the erection of first stand, the only one with a roof to date. It could hold some 4,000 people with same amount able to watch games from three open sides to make for a capacity of 8,000.
Until 1975 all three remaining stands were done and they too remain as they used to be at the beginning – uncovered terracing for both home and away fans. Already one year after opening record crowd of 12,617 people gathered, a number unseen since then.
Unseen, though possible – the stadium can hold up to 14,500 people. No games have reached such an interest, even the friendly between VfB Stuttgart and Ghana in 2006 (when Ghana national team was training here) had only 6,000 people watching.
New design: Kickers' stadium plans still on despite relegation
Würzburg Kickers have just been relegated from the 2. Bundesliga. They need to improve not only their level of play, but also the venue if they want to come back to this division.
Germany: Rainbow stadiums to commemorate Holocaust
This weekend German stadiums might be more colourful than usually. Illuminations, corner flag, captains’ armbands – these are some of the means to commemorate LGBT people as part of this year’s Remembrance Day in German Football.
