Discover the ambience at Millerntor Stadion
Sankt Pauli has been playing in the Millerntor Stadion since 1963, when the stadium opened. The club started playing at a piece of ground on which their former stadium was built. The stadium was totally destroyed after World War II and, as a result, the club was forced to move. The Millerntor Stadion had a capacity of 32,000 after the construction was completed, but due to changes in the regulations, this decreased to 29.062. The stadium’s name was Wilhelm-Koch-Stadion between 1970 and 1988. This changed because the man the stadium was named after, appeared to have been a member of the NSDAP. It retrieved its current name we know today. The American football club Hamburg Blue Devils play their home matches in the Millerntor Stadion, as well.
