Bundesliga Club FSV Mainz Moves Ahead With Plans To Remodel Stadium
Bundesliga club FSV Mainz's "plans to remove the standing-room stand at its stadium and build a new administrative building in its place are becoming more detailed," according to Michael Erfurth of the ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNG. Mainz President Harald Strutz "has applied for a corresponding building license at the city because the current building code does not allow such a building." The city council "will decide on the proposal, which would initiate the project, on Wednesday." However, the club "is still very cautious about the project." FSV Manager Christian Heidel said, "The project will be only implemented if it has reliable finances that don't interfere with the club and its other investments such as league competition" (ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNG, 10/26).
