SC Paderborn to increase stadium capacity

SC Paderborn to increase stadium capacity

Sunday 7th July 2019

German side SC Paderborn have announced plans to increase the capacity of their Benteler Arena stadium to 17,700.

The club were promoted back to the Bundesliga last season and will spend the next 2 years renovating their ground. The work will be done in phases with the corporate/VIP area expanded this season.

Phase 2 will see a second tier of 2,700 seats added next season which will increase the capacity from 15,000 to 17,700. The project is expected to cost a total of €5.5m.

Paderborn’s stadium is by far the smallest in the Bundesliga, where average attendances last season topped 43,000, making it the best supported professional league in the world. This will be Paderborn’s second ever season in the German top flight.
