Second Bundesliga Club 1860 Munich Pushes Stadium Plan Without Investor Support
Published October 17, 2012
KEEP LOOKING: The ABENDZEITUNG reported a community council spokesperson said that the club's targeted property in the Munich borough of Riem is leased "long-term" to a logistics company. The spokesperson continued, "In 2011, the city council approved a policy decision that the area will be used as as distribution center." 1860 Munich VP Franz Magat meanwhile said "there are no definitive solutions" in regards to a new stadium. He said, "We are still missing the first requirement for a new stadium: an empty property, which is suitable for a stadium. In addition, we also miss investors." Magat also expressed skepticism about possible other properties in the Munich boroughs of Garching-Hochbrück and Freiham (ABENDZEITUNG, 10/12).
