Description

The Volksparkstadion was the home of Hamburger SV for almost half a century until it got demolished in 1998 and replaced by the Hamburg Arena. In the first half of the 20th century, Hamburger SV and its predecessors played their home matches at the Rothenbaum-Sportplatz, but occasionally moved to the larger Altonaer Stadion, which was located in the Altonaer Volkspark.

After the Second World War, criticism of the Altonaer Stadion and its poor sightlines slowly grew. In 1951, the city of Hamburg decided to build a new stadium in its place.

The opening match was between Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt. The Volksparkstadion officially opened on July 12, 1953. The new stadium could hold a total of 76,000 spectators. The opening match was between Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt.

It took a further decade for HSV to make the definite move from the Rothenbaum-Sportplatz to the Volksparkstadion. The smaller Rothenbaum-Sportplatz, with a capacity of only 28,000, had then finally proven to be too small for the rising Hamburg club.

In the early 1970s, the Volksparkstadion underwent a first refurbishment in order to make it ready for the 1974 World Cup. The main changes involved increased and improved seating areas and additional cover. This resulted in a reduction of capacity to 61,000 people.

The stadium hosted three matches in the first group stage of the 1974 World Cup.

The Volksparkstadium served as a playing venue at the 1988 European Championships. The stadium hosted the semi-final between West Germany and Holland that ended in a 1-2 defeat for the hosts.

The stadium had already begun to markedly age, though, and when a new generation of stadiums started to get built in the mid 1990s, HSV did not want to get left behind.

In 1998, Hamburg sold the stadium to HSV for one symbolic Deutschmark. Shortly after, the club started demolishing the old stadium and replacing it with new stands.

The demolition and construction of the stadium was done gradually in order to allow HSV to keep playing its home matches at the stadium. The completed Hamburg Arena opened in August 2000.

I vividly remember the sound of the crowd chanting "Wir sind das Volk" as the East German flag was slowly lowered and then raised. I remember the opening ceremony of Altonaer Stadium in 1953.
