History and description

The Fritz-Walter-Stadion, then still called Sportplatz Betzenberg, was built in 1920. It initially consisted of one wooden stand, a sandy pitch, and changing facilities for the players. The Sportplatz Betzenberg officially opened on May 13, 1920 with a match between Kaiserslautern and FC Pfalz Ludwigshafen.

The wooden stand was destroyed in a storm in 1930, which led to a redevelopment of the main stand and concrete terraces.

Stadium Betzenberg was expanded in 1953 and could now hold just over 30,000 spectators.

Since the 1950s, the club has been gradually expanding and modernising the stadium. In 1963, new stands were opened at the long sides, and in 1973, all ends were refurbished. In 1978, the redevelopment was complete and the stadium's capacity was raised to 38,000. At the same time, the name of the stadium got changed to Fritz-Walter-Stadion.

These additions raised the stadium's capacity to 46,000 and made it one of the largest in Europe. Kaiserslautern started a new round of redevelopments in 1994, 1998, and most recently in 2016. These redevelopments increased the stadium's capacity to 46,000 people and made it one of the largest in Europe.

The 2006 World Cup selection of Fritz-Walter-Stadion as a playing venue resulted in the commencement of extensive construction projects on both ends of the stadium in a similar style.

The 2006 World Cup took place at Fritz-Walter-Stadion, where it played host to four group matches and the round of 16 match between Italy and Australia.

Despite the name change, the stadium is still commonly referred to as Betzenberg Stadium.
