Stockhorn Arena – stadium description

After citizens voted to reject public funding back in 2006, municipality could not support aspirations of local side FC Thun. Help came from private sector with consortium of HRS / ARCO financing this development.

Construction started in early 2010 to end in mid-2011, with opening game in July. The stadium seats some 9,500 people of whom 2,000 have terracing instead of seating, as is the desire of most vibrant supporters.
