Eintracht Frankfurt to increase Commerzbank Arena capacity to 60,000

Eintracht Frankfurt to increase Commerzbank Arena capacity to 60,000

Saturday 2nd November 2019

Eintracht Frankfurt have announced plans to increase the capacity of the Commerzbank Arena to from 51,500 to 60,000.

The Bundesliga side will do so by installing safe standing rail seats in the north west corner - a move which will make it the 6th largest stadium in Germany.

Frankfurt have played in the ground since it was built in 1925. It has been extensively renovated since then and has hosted matches at several major tournaments including the World Cup in 1974 and 2006, Federations Cup in 2005 and the Women's World Cup in 2011.

Part of the change will also see the club take over the running of the stadium - a move which will enable them to host concerts and other non-football events.

It is hoped that the increase in capacity will be completed by 2023.
