History and description

Austria Wien did not have a permanent home until the 1960s. They used different grounds and the large Praterstadion for their important matches. In 1973, the club tested various grounds and found one that had been used by a side of Czech immigrants. The club then moved to the ground in 1977.

Austria Vienna played their first match at the ground, still called Ceske Srdce, on 26 August 1973.

Shortly after Franz Horr's death, the Vienna Football Association (VFA) president and ardent stadium supporter, the club decided to name their new stadium in his honour.

Plans were made for an extensive redevelopment, however these got repeatedly delayed, which forced Austria to move out again.

It took until 1982 for a first new stand to get built, and on 22 August 1982, Franz-Horr-Stadion officially opened with the Cup final between Austria and Wacker Innsbruck (3-1).

Completed in 1986, the new North Stand complemented the extensive renovation of the South Stand four years earlier. In 2008, a covered terrace was added on the western end of the stadium.

For the next decade, Franz-Horr-Stadion remained unchanged until in 1998 a new Main Stand replaced the renovated South Stand.

The stadium underwent a number of last changes in 2008, with the opening of a new two-tiered East Stand and renovations to the West Stand.

In 2010, the Generali insurance firm reached a naming rights deal with Austria, resulting in the new name Generali Arena.

In the summer of 2016, extensive renovations began on the Generali Arena. These renovations were two years long, and in the end two new stands were built that would form a whole with the two-tiered East Stand. The Main Stand remained standing, resulting in a capacity of 17,500 seats. During the renovations, Austria played their home games at Ernst Happel Stadion while they were closed for renovations.

Works were completed in 2018 and the completed stadium reopened in July 2018.
