Freiburg’s new stadium beats legal challenge

Monday 24th June 2019

SC Freiburg’s new stadium looks set to go ahead after the club overcame a legal battle with local residents.

Opponents are concerned about noise pollution and increased traffic on match days. However, the local courts have rejected the concerns, giving the Bundesliga club the green light to continue the project.

The new 34,700 capacity stadium is to be built close to the city’s airport. Just over a third of the stadium will be “safe standing”, seeing 12,400 rail seats installed.

It’s a large jump from their current 24,000 capacity Schwarzwald Stadion. It looks like it’s needed though - last season’s average attendance of 23,894 seeing the ground 99.6% full.
