Red Bull Arena, Leipzig, Germany

The Red Bull Arena, formerly Zentralstadion, located in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany, is the premier football facility in the former East Germany. It is the largest football stadium in the former East Germany and has also hosted music concerts as well as football.
In 1956, the first Zentralstadion opened, at the time it was the biggest stadium in Europe being able to hold 100,000 spectators. However, over the years it fell in to disuse and was costing the city too much to maintain. In 1997, the city of Leipzig decided to build a new stadium within the old stadium, a modern state of the art stadium only for football. The new stadium was built from December 2000 till March 2004. The Zentralstadion was the only stadium in the former East Germany to host games in the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
