The Wörthersee Stadium was opened with a grand celebration in September 2007 and underwent its practical testing during the Euro 2008. After some adjustments that were made in 2014, the stadium now has 30,000 seats for spectators. In addition to soccer games, the Wörthersee stadium has hosted open-air ice hockey derbies, two major concerts, as well as the United Word Games and Special Olympics –“Heartbeat 2014”.
Cultural events such as concerts are planned in addition to international sport events in the future.
The stadium is subject to all UEFA and FIFA guidelines and represents a solid building that is beautifully integrated into the surrounding landscape. The dynamic superelevation of the roof above the East tribune is an architectural highlight of the stadium. The slightly increasing West ramp going towards the stadium, as well as several stairways that allow access to the stadium on the cornerstones of the platform are other eye-catching features. The tribunes are as close as possible to the soccer field and make every game a very special live experience.
The generously elevated box above the West building holds the VIP Lounge and its equipment and furnishing are designed for VIP season ticket holders. The VIP area has a special tribune for 300 special guests that slightly hangs over, and therefore, is even closer to the soccer field.
The Wörthersee Stadium is the most modern stadium of Austria and the home of the SK Austria Klagenfurt club, who has been playing its home games in this stadium in the Regional league.
