History and description

On 9 July 1997, the Merkur Arena officially opened its doors. It replaced the old Bundesstadion Graz-Liebenau, which had served as the home of football in Graz for over sixty years. The first match played at the stadium was a friendly between GAK and Sturm Graz (0-4). The request was ultimately approved by the Austrian Football Association and the stadium was renamed to 'Freyung Stadion' in his honour. The stadium was initially named after Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was born in a suburb of Graz. After he took some controversial decisions as the governor of the state of California, many voices went up to change the name of the stadium. The request was ultimately approved by the Austrian Football Association and the stadium was renamed to 'Freyung Stadion' in his honour.

In the end, Arnold Schwarzenegger took the decision to relinquish control of the naming rights of the stadium in 2005 when he decided not to approve their use. The naming rights of the stadium later sold to cable company UPC, resulting in its current name, UPC-Arena.

In 2016, a new naming rights deal resulted in the name Merkur Arena.

How to get to the Merkur Arena

The Merkur Arena is located in the south of the city of Graz, just west of its historic city center and about 2 kilometres more from the main railway station. It takes about 30 minutes to walk to the stadium from the city centre. Alternatively, take either tram 4 or 13. If you're coming from Jakominiplatz (or tram 4 from Hauptplatz), take the tram in the direction of Liebenau Murpark. Get off at stop Stadion Liebenau.

First, take the main railway station's tram or bus (e.g. tram 1, 3, 6, and 7, or bus E) to Jakominiplatz. Then, change to tram 4 or 13.

If arriving by car, the Merkur Arena is easiest reached from the A2 motorway, which runs south of the city. The stadium will lie on the left side of the road soon after exiting 179 onto Knoten Graz-Ost and following for Zentrum. Continue on the Süd Autobahn into the city.

Address: Stadionplatz 1, A-8041 Graz
