History and description

Max-Morlock-Stadion was built between 1926 and 1928. It originally held about 50,000 spectators. . The stadium was designed by local architect Otto Ernst Schweizer, who is credited with making it the only octagonal stadium in Germany. It has a distinctive octagonal shape that still exists, making it an iconic landmark in the town.

In the 1930s, the stadium and its surroundings became an important rallying ground for the Nazi Party. After World War II, it turned into a sports field used by the US Army.

Few football games were played at the stadium in its early years. FC Nürnberg played at their Spielstätte am Zabo ground, and only in 1963 moved to the larger Städtisches Stadion.

The stadium got gradually expanded, resulting in a capacity of about 75,000 by 1971. However, the city of Nürnberg, passed on the chance to further modernize the stadium and become a host city of the 1974 World Cup.

The Städtisches Stadion underwent a large redevelopment in 1987 and 1991, including the construction of a roof. The stadium was later renamed Frankenstadion.

The Frankenstadion was renovated in 2004 and 2005 in preparation for the 2006 World Cup. During the World Cup, it hosted four group matches and the round of 16 match between Portugal and Holland (1-0).

The stadium was renamed again after a sponsorship deal expired in 2012. The new deal resulted in Grundig Stadion. This ended in 2016, and the stadium was renamed Stadion Nürnberg.

In 2017, the stadium was renamed Max-Morlock-Stadion after the former Nurnberg player. This occurred as a result of a crowdfunding campaign in which the Consorsbank secured the naming rights.
