Red Bull Arena’s history

The Red Bull Arena was opened in 1956. Plans for building a new stadium were already made in the twenties of the twentieth century. The stadium would be a big sporting complex where several sports could be exercised. Due to an enormous economical crisis and the Second World War, the plans couldn’t be carried through. The debris of the bombings were used for building the stands of the stadium. When the stadium – the Zentralstadion back then – was finally opened, it was the biggest stadium of Germany with a capacity of 100.000. The stadium existed out of one circular wall back then. The new stadium is built within this wall. The Zentralstadion didn’t last long and was broken down in the year 2000. The new stadium was only meant for football and reopened in 2004 as the Zentralstadion. The name changes to the current Red Bull Arena in 2010.
