Veltins Arena - FC Schalke 04 - Gelsenkirchen Germany

Veltins Arena Football Stadium -- has been known under various names including the SchalkeArena and the AufArena since it was constructed in 2001. Now the football club have signed a multi-year deal with the Brewers Veltins to sponsor the stadium. The Veltins Arena is not only used for football but also for operas, pop concerts, ice hockey, etc..

On 13 August 2001 a new age began for FC Schalke 04. At an inauguration ceremony full of atmosphere the Royal Blues ushered in the era of the VELTINS ARENA. The traditional German club had built itself a new home, a home that in terms of functionality and modernity represented a quantum leap, not only in comparison with its predecessor, the Park Stadium. With its retractable pitch, closable roof, movable South Stand and videocube, the Arena immediately assumed the mantle of Europe's most modern stadium. Hi-tech that ensures that football matches can be staged in front of 61,481 fans (and more than 70,000 for pop concerts) 365 days a year.

Yet the Arena has also built up an impressive reputation outside the realm of major events. Whether it's a meeting or an anniversary, a congress or an office party, a registry office marriage or a church wedding, the ultra-modern venue with its elegant and cosy ambience is well placed to cope with any requirement. And so, observers soon come to realise what the extraordinary technology already suggests - the Arena AufSchalke is more than just a stadium.

It hosted the 2004 UEFA Champions League final and 5 matches in the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
