Volksparkstadion site
Built on the site of the old Volksparkstadion, where Hamburger SV played the second leg of their 1982 UEFA Cup final against IFK Göteborg, the Arena Hamburg was inaugurated in 2000 when Germany played Greece and serves both as a football ground and a concert hall. The stadium hosted four group games at the 2006 FIFA World Cup and the quarter final between Italy and Ukraine.
