Bundesliga Borussia Dortmund Organization Dir Christian Hockenjos said that club "will submit a building application to install additional stadium entrances," according to STADIONWELT. Originally, these entrances "should have been completed by the start of the Bundesliga's second half." Due to "planning delays and higher construction costs" than previously thought, the entrances "are now expected to be completed either on Feb. 15 or March 1." The plan "calls for five new entrance lanes in the stadium's northeast section." The construction costs will be around €150,000 ($203,000) (STADIONWELT, 1/17).
Swiss National League A hockey club HC Fribourg-Gottéron President Charles Phillot said that the ailing FKB-Arena "will not be renovated but demolished," according to Bruno Hayoz of BLICK. He said, "The plans for a renovation are off the table. We are following two projects. We expect to make a decision by mid-February." The construction for a new arena is expected to start in '15, with the club moving to its new home two years later (BLICK, 1/19).
