History and description

The MEWA Arena, previously known as Coface Arena and Opel Arena, opened in 2011 and replaced Mainz's Stadion am Bruchweg. Construction of the new stadium had begun in 2009 and was completed 22 months later. Opel Arena officially opened on 4 July 2011. The first football match was played on 19 July with a mini-tournament of Mainz, Dortmund, Bayern, and Hamburg.

The stadium was initially called Coface Arena following a naming rights deal with insurer Coface, but got renamed Opel Arena in July 2016 after a new deal. In 2021, the stadium will change its name again to MEWA Arena.

How to get to the MEWA Arena

The MEWA Arena is located in the western edge of Mainz, slightly more than 4 kilometers from Mainz's historic center and the main rail station. The stadium is easy to access from the A60 highway which runs south and west of the city of Mainz. Take exit 19 Mainz-Fintheim and follow the L419 toward Mainz-Zentrum. The stadium is located on the right side of the road after about 2 kilometres.

If using public transport, catch bus 54 from the Hauptbahnhof to get to the MEWA Arena. Get off at stop Kisselberg/Coface Deutschland. The ride will only take 5 minutes.

There are many good alternatives to bus 68 and 69. Get off at Ackermannweg (68) or Fachhochschule (69).

The buses leave every 10 minutes and the journey takes around 20 minutes. On matchdays, special shuttle buses run from the main railway station to the stadium. The buses leave every 10 minutes and the journey takes around 20 minutes.

Address: Eugen-Salomon-Straße 1, 55128 Mainz

Eat, drink, and sleep near the MEWA Arena

The MEWA Arena is located in the city of Mainz, surrounded by farmland, quiet residential neighbourhoods, and the University of Mainz campus. There is not a lot around in terms of eating and drinking, which is best done in the city centre of Mainz. There are also a few hotels in the immediate vicinity of the train station. There are no hotels located near the MEWA Arena itself, but both Hotel Roemerstein and Park Inn Mainz can be reached within 15 to 20 minutes by foot. The latter is convenient if you arrive by car. There are also several hotels located close to the railway station.

There are many different places in Mainz city centre to stay, while you can also stay nearby in Frankfurt which is only a half an hour away by train.

Useful websites

The official website of 1. FC Mainz 05 is Mainz.de. The website provides information about the city of Mainz and its tourist attractions, public transport options, and more. Additionally, the website provides information about MVG-Mainz, which is a public transport service operated by the city of Mainz. There are plenty of bars and food stalls outside the stadium that are running on a cash basis. However, I think you will need a club charge card to use any of these amenities once inside the stadium. The grounds have a reasonable atmosphere against Hannover 96.

Tickets may be ordered online to pick up at the stadium, but if picked up on the day of the match a fee is payable for "admin? - I think it was ?3 or ?5.

Lots of shuttle buses run from the Mainz main station to the ground and it's then a 10 minute walk through farmland. There are plenty of bars and food stalls outside the stadium all running on a cash basis, but once inside I think you need a club charge card.

The ground was not bad - there were a lot of empty seats when I went, but the atmosphere against Hannover 96 was reasonable.
