Bundesliga Club FC Nuremberg Wants To Build Own Stadium, Expected To Open By 2020
Bundesliga club FC Nuremberg "is once again dreaming of building its own stadium," according to the SID. Club Financial Dir Ralf Woy said, "It is supposed to be a new stadium in Nuremberg. It is expected to be completed by 2020 at the site of the old stadium." The club's main goal "is to generate higher revenue with a competitive stadium." At its current stadium, which has a capacity of 50,000, the club "is only a tenant." In addition, the Nuremberg stadium, together with the Berlin Olympic stadium, "are the only Bundesliga stadiums that have a running track surrounding the field." Parts of the current stadium, which was last renovated in '06 ahead of the World Cup for €56M, "are under heritage protection." Woy said that the club "is currently talking with potential partners." Woy: "We need investors. We are not able to finance the project on our own" (SID, 9/13).
