History of the Stadion an der Bremer Brücke
The construction process to build the Stadion an der Bremer Brücke began in November 1931 and it was finished a couple of years later in 1933. There were extensive renovations completed during the 1970s which saw the completion of a grandstand, two roofed terraces behind the goals, as well as an uncovered terrace.
The more recent renovations began in 2008, with a new roof stand replacing the old North stand. While this section managed to open in August 2008, there was an issue with one of the local residents due to the close situation of the residence to the new stand. Therefore, final changes to this stand were not finished until 2011.
As a result of the new stadium the capacity dropped slightly but it did manage to increase the seating capacity in the arena. This stadium currently meets the minimum requirements for stadiums to host games in the Bundesliga.
