Eintracht Frankfurt to increase stadium capacity to 60,000

Friday 15th April 2022

Eintracht Frankfurt have announced plans to increase the capacity of Waldstadion to 60,000.

The Bundesliga club will add an additional 11,000 safe standing spaces after getting agreement from the local council.

The stadium was originally opened in 1925 and until recently was known as the Commerzbank Arena. It has hosted numerous international matches including World Cups in 1974 and 2006, Euro 88 and the 2011 Women's World Cup.

From 2023, the stadium will also be used to host NFL matches as American football heads back to Germany.

Work on the stadium will begin in the autumn.
