Zentralstadion Leipzig

In 1956 the first Zentralstadion opened, at the time it was the biggest stadium in Germany being able to hold 100,000 spectators. However, over the years it fell in to disuse and was costing the city too much to maintain. In 1997 the city of Leipzig decided to build a new stadium within the old stadium, a modern state of the art stadium only for football. The new stadium was built from December 2000 till March of 2004.

There are bridges built over the old stadium to connect with the new stadium. The roof has an integrated floodlight design and is designed to provide supierior acoustics. The lawn size is 80x120, the actual playing field is 68x105. It has been integrated into the area surronding the stadium by large amounts of trees and other greenery.
