The Info List - Schwarzwald-Stadion

--- Advertisement ---

is a football stadium in Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is currently the home of Bundesliga team SC Freiburg. The stadium holds 24,000 spectators and was built in 1953. For many years it was called the Dreisamstadion, situated near the river Dreisam. In June 2004 it was given the name of Badenova-Stadion, later Mage Solar Stadion, and for a short time the Stadion an der Schwarzwaldstraße. Due to a sponsorship deal, it is currently named the Schwarzwald-Stadion.[3] In 2012, modernising the stadium was deemed unprofitable. In February 2015, a referendum was held to determine whether a new stadium should be built and if so, where. The citizens of Freiburg
voted in favour of the construction of a new stadium at the Wolfswinkel nearby Freiburg's municipal airport.

History[edit] The earliest home stadium of SC Freiburg
was the Winterer-Stadion, which was first used in 1928. In 1936 the club had to leave the stadium because the Luftwaffe
needed it for use as an airstrip. After the end of World War Two
World War Two
SC Freiburg
didn't have their own home ground and had to use the facilities of Freiburger Turnerschaft von 1844. In 1953, the club received a site east of the city. The sports field was officially opened on 1 September 1954.[4] In 1970, stands on the south side of the field were constructed, adding 480 covered seats. Following the club's 1978 promotion to the 2. Bundesliga, the first major expansion was planned. The construction of a main stand, which added 1.800 seats, and the expansion of the standing section in 1980 increased the stadium's capacity to 15,000.[1] In 1993, Rolf Disch Solar Architecture

created the initiative to change their field into a solar stadium. Photovoltaic
panels were installed on the roof, creating the first solar powered stadium. The stadium was eventually outfitted with floodlights after Freiburg
was promoted to the 1. Bundesliga. The stands to the east of the pitch received a roof and 1,580 new seats. The number of seats in main stands was increased to 5,000. During the 1994/95 winter break construction of stands behind the goal on the south side began, and after the new stands were completed in July 1995, the total capacity was raised to 18,000. The current size of the stadium was reached in 1999, when the north and south stands were expanded or renovated, respectively. The stands to the north of the pitch offer a standing area for 6,000 spectators, and the stands to the east offer 7,000 seats. Both stands are covered. Space for handicapped spectators were built in front of the east stands, right next to the pitch. The stadium can fit 24,000 spectators into 14,000 seats and standing areas for 10,000 spectators.[1] All of the stands are covered. Due to a complaint from the neighborhood, the club has been banned from further increases to the stadium's capacity. The stadium no longer fulfills the UEFA-guidelines (the field is 4,5 meters too short), which means that UEFA
European competition matches beyond the qualification phase require special authorization.[5] The DFL gave the SC Freiburg
special authorization for the 2012-13 Bundesliga
season in the 1. Bundesliga.[6] In 2004, the stadium's name was changed from Dreisamstadion to Badenova-Stadion, because the trademark rights were given to the energy company Badenova. By 2004, further construction had been completed. Two photovoltaic-generators cover a large amount of the stadium's energy needs by producing 250,000 kilowatt-hours per year.[1] The pitch-heating is also environmentally friendly. It is powered by Stirling engine. The VIP-guests received an upgrade to their seats in the form of a function building. This building is located in the north-western corner of the stadium. A fan-house was constructed behind the stands on the north side of the pitch. This building is administrated by the governing body of the SC Freiburg's fanbase. Multiple international matches have taken place in the Schwarzwald-Stadion. The most recent game was a friendly match between the German National Football Team
German National Football Team
and the Luxembourg national football team, shortly before the 2006 Football World Cup. During the World Cup the stadium was used as a training ground for the Netherlands national football team, which was quartered in Hinterzarten for the duration. The Germany national under-21 football team
Germany national under-21 football team
has played three times at the stadium. On February 28, 2008, the German women's national football team
German women's national football team
played a friendly match against the China women's national football team. 20,000 spectators came to watch the German team win 2:0. In May 2010, the Dutch National Soccer Team returned to Freiburg
and played a test match against the Mexico national football team
Mexico national football team
as part of the preparations for the World Cup. From the beginning of 2012 until the middle of 2014, the stadium was called the Mage Solar Stadion.[7] On September 25, 2014, it was announced that the Schwarzwald Tourismus GmbH and seven other financing partners ( Freiburg
Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH & Co. KG, Hochschwarzwald Tourismus GmbH (HTG), Liftverbund Feldberg, Hermann Wein Schwarzwälder Genuss Manufaktur, Julabo Labortechnik, Schleith-Gruppe, and AHP Merkle) had taken over the trademark rights of the stadium for five years. They also decided to change the name of the stadium to Schwarzwald-Stadion.[8] The name change was ratified by the Freiburg
municipal council on October 7, 2014.[9] The stadium can be reached via the tram line "Stadtbahnlinie 1" or via the Höllentalbahn, which stops at the train-station Freiburg-Littenweiler. The Schwarzwaldstraße and connecting streets between Hansjakobstraße and the Schwarzwaldstraße are closed during home games for all non-residents. Stadium Newsletter[edit] The "SC-Report" was circulated at no cost until the 1995–96 Bundesliga
season. Since then the stadium newsletter "Heimspiel"(home game) has existed. After the first ascension into the 1. Bundesliga
in 1993, a multitude of Fanzines came out of the Freiburg
fan community. The "Fanman" and "Charly" Fanzines are well known even outside of Freiburg. During the 2009–10 Bundesliga
season, the Freiburg Ultra-scene released the "Bruddler", a successor of the "Dreisamgeplätscher", which was released by the Wilden Jungs Freiburg. The "Dreisamgeplätscher" was published twice during the 2008-09 Bundesliga
season. The "Bruddler" fanzine was discontinued, and the "Dreisamgeplätscher" was published biannually starting in the 2010-11 Bundesliga
season. The publishing is done exclusively by the Wilden Jungs Freiburg. International Matches[edit]
