    Stadium Guide: Mercedes-Benz Arena, Stuttgart

    Following their promotion back to Germany’s top-flight, we’ve taken an in-depth look at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, the home of Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart.

    Stadium Name: Mercedes-Benz Arena
    Location: Stuttgart, Germany
    Team: VfB Stuttgart
    Built: 1933
    Capacity: 60,441

    After a season of second division football – albeit in front of huge 39,500-strong crowds – Stuttgart’s impressive home ground will be hosting top-flight Bundesliga games once again following VfB’s promotion.

    Originally known as Adolf-Hilter-Kampfbahn, the stadium has undergone numerous name changes and rebuilding work, before being sponsored by the local car-manufacturing giant in 2008.

    Twice a European Cup final venue, the arena has also hosted matches at two World Cup finals, the Euros and seen Stuttgart crowned German champions five times, most recently in 2007.

    As well as regularly staging international fixtures for Die Mannschaft, the stadium was also home to Stuttgarter Kickers for their two brief spells in the top tier and – before its conversion to a football-specific stadium – several big athletics championships.
