Since 1 July 2020, the Frankfurt Arena will be called Deutsche Bank Park – and thus reminds us of its origins in its name. About 100 years ago, the idea arose to build a sports park near Oberforsthaus on the site of a former military shooting range. Initially, the 42-hectare site was planned for the actual stadium with 37,000 spectator seats, a gym and festival ground, a cycling stadium and a swimming pool.
The winter sports hall along with the track, the tennis court and in 1960 the ice rink in the middle of the cycling stadium were later added. Today, in addition to the multi-converted stadium with its capacity of 51,500 seats,
the swimming pool, the winter sports hall and beach volleyball courts have also been preserved, and many areas have now become training grounds for Eintracht Frankfurt. The stadium in Deutsche Bank Park is the home of Bundesliga football club Eintracht Frankfurt and is also the venue for numerous major events, concerts and business events.
