The football district league club SC March has named its home ground after the world champion of 2014 – 27-year-old Matthias Ginter. From now on, the SC March’s home facility will be called – Matthias-Ginter-Sportpark.

The ‘Bild’ stated that the club had announced the name change on October 10th. Earlier, the club had gone for an advertisement blitzkrieg on the decision to name their home venue after the football great. The catchline went as such – ‘The Waldstadion is history. The ‘Matthias-Ginter-Sportpark’ is the future’.
