History and description

The SchücoArena, originally called Melanchthon Alm, officially opened on 1 May 1926 with a match between Arminia Bielefeld and Viktoria Hamburg. The stadium initially consisted of earth banking only, and it remained this way for the next three decades. In 1954, the earth banking was replaced with concrete stands, and the capacity increased to about 20,000 places.

During the 1960s, Arminia started to flirt with promotion to the Bundesliga. First, a new south stand was built. When the club finally promoted in 1970, a new west stand and temporary structures on the other sides followed. This increased capacity to over 30,000 places.

In the following two decades, Arminia's fortunes declined again, and the "Alm? slowly fell into disrepair.

Arminia's successes returned in the mid 1990s, and plans were made for a complete redevelopment of the stadium. A new main and north stand opened in 1999, followed two years later by a new south stand. The project was completed in 2008 when an east stand opened.

In 2004, the "Alm? was renamed SchücoArena following a sponsorship deal.
