History and description

It seats over 30,000 people and is the home ground of Union Berlin. The Stadion An der Alten Försterei was built in 1920 as FC Olympia, the precursor to Union Berlin, had to move out of their previous home, which had gotten repurposed for residential housing. It seats over 30,000 people and is the home ground of Union Berlin. The new stadium, then still called Sportplatz Sadowa, officially opened on 7 August 1920 with a friendly against German champion Nurnberg. The club had already played their first match at the stadium five months earlier against Viktoria 89.

The stadium originally could only hold around 10,000 people, nearly all of whom were standing. FC Olympia regularly moves to stadiums with larger capacities for important matches.

It took until 1968 for the stadium to undergo its first major redevelopment, which involved the enlargement of the terrace on the long side to a capacity of 15,000 places. In 1978, it was the turn of the stands behind the goal to be enlarged, which raised capacity to 23,500.

However, the stadium quickly deteriorated and safety measures decreased capacity. As the club lacked the finances to improve the ground, it took until the start of the new century for the stadium to get a first round of small improvements.

The Union needed to find a more long-term solution, so in the early 2000s the club looked into building an entire new stadium with a capacity of 30,000 people. However, the club didn't have the funding to do this on their own, so they shifted their focus to renovating Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

In 2008, construction started on replacing the terraces with new covered terraces along three sides. Just as during earlier redevelopments, a lot of the works were performed by volunteer fans. In 2012, construction started on rebuilding the all-seater main stand, which opened one year later.
