German 3rd League football club SV Darmstadt "will remain at the Böllenfalltor, its current home ground," according to Frank Leber of LIGA 3 ONLINE. This "is the result of a feasibility study that was presented by Mayor Rafael Reißer." The study "looked at three possible locations for a new stadium." In addition to its current home ground, the study "took a look at areas in the city's south and north." The study calculated that "a move would have significantly higher costs than a new construction at its current site." The proposed new area will have a capacity of 18,000, including 340 suite seats. The new arena will have an estimated price tag of €27.6M ($36.1M). The construction work "is scheduled to start in the summer of '14 and is supposed to be completed by the end of '15" (LIGA 3 ONLINE, 7/17).
