Tönnies-Arena – stadium description

This modest stadium with two stands is one of rather few that were built specifically for female football. Anchor tenants are the Bundesliga side FSV Gütersloh 2009, with further use being provided by youth and reserve teams of RSC Rheda.

Soon after opening in September 2012 also German national team (U17) played their first game here, selling out against Georgia. Later more qualifiers were held. But the opening itself was devoted to rather traditional football by Borussia Dortmund and Schalke, playing a friendly derby.

Audience can gather at two stands with 3,562 seats, both built in just 5 months and worth altogether €5 million. Additionally, if need be, some 400 more people can stand along the railings on two open sides.

Until Spring 2015 meat plant Tönnies holds naming rights.
