Bundesliga club SC Freiburg has moved to their dream home – Europa-Park Stadium – which opened its doors on October 7th, 2021.

The ‘SWR’ stated that the inaugural ceremony of the plush facility took place with a test match being played as part of the inaugural event in the presence of a restricted crowd of 15,000 between the SC Freiburg and the FC St. Pauli. The match ended with a 3-0 win for the home team.

The 34,700-capacity SC-Stadion, known as the Europa-Park Stadion for sponsorship reasons, serve as the new home stadium of SC Freiburg, replacing the club’s former home, the Schwarzwald-Stadion.

The ‘SWR’ further stated that Freiburg had originally hoped to move to its new ground during the 2020-2021 seasons but this has not been possible due to COVID-19 which had set its evil eye on the project. It is located in a part of the City called Brühl, near the airport.
