The university city Freiburg is the southernmost city in Germany. Due to its location, the city is a popular destination for tourists.

There you have had many good times, but also one or the other low point with relegations from the top German league. However, the people of Freiburg usually get up again and again. And not only that. A clear sign that you want to develop sportily and economically are the plans for the new SC stadium, which is all round Cost 131 million euros should. Construction is scheduled to start in early 2019, with the first game scheduled for summer 2020. During the planning, great importance was attached to the fact that the stadium would continue to bring advantages and strengths of the old Black Forest stadium with it, such as the narrow stands and the resulting closeness of the spectators to the field. Such a new stadium is a big project with many hurdles. In addition to the costs, the municipal council must vote on the development plan. A grant from the state and the infrastructure are other crucial issues.
Remaining first class in the long term and still a club for the fans
Every club depends on the loyal and vocal support of its fans. The smaller clubs that cannot keep up financially with the big ones and often fight to stay in the league are therefore all the more dependent on the spectators of the so-called “12. Man "are.
The SC always manages to teach those who act the club as relegation candidates wrong. After being promoted again in 2016, they are now entering the third Bundesliga season in a row and, thanks to their consistency in the years before relegation, they can call themselves an established Bundesliga team. But despite the traditionally good support from home fans, the sports club is often considered an outsider against clubs with higher ambitions, even at home games. This is also reflected in the Sports betting odds at Betfair. Against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, for example, the guests go into the game as favorites despite their poor position in the table. The Freiburg fans will not mind this. Regardless of the name of the opponent, Christian Streich's troops can usually rely on the loud support of his supporters.

However, you will have to be patient until 2020. Only then is the first whistle planned in the new stadium. At the same time, it gives the fans enough time to say goodbye to the Black Forest Stadium.

However, even the most resistant opponents of the new stadium will understand that it is economically necessary to be able to keep up with the competition in the long term. If you look at how that new stadium should look, you can probably also rave about opponents of the new building. It is therefore easy to imagine that the new stadium will develop into a new feel-good place faster than expected due to the detailed considerations.
