Stadium History

In 1990’s it was still an uncovered venue with athletics track, but already with stands raised largely from concrete. Then came the steel and membrane roof structure (1993) and capacity increase (2005). Finally in 2009-2011 the athletics track was removed for the first time in history while stands were built closer to the pitch under the existing roof. Not without trouble as one of the cranes inside the ground fell onto the structure with the operator thankfully surviving.

Over the years numerous events of the highest profile took place here. World Cup twice (1974, 2006) Euro once (1988), Champions League final twice (back then European Cup final – 1959, 1988). To add to that, large athletics events from 1986 (World Championship), 1993 (European Championship) and 2006-2008 (IAAF World Athletics finals). Apart from, of course, VfB Stuttgart games as this club remains major tenant.
