Stadion Wiener Neustädter History
Stadion Wiener Neustadt was officially declared open by Mayor Rudolf Wehrl in May 1955 after a construction period of three years with the current home team SC Wiener Neustadt being the sole tenants throughout the stadium’s history excluding one season. During the 1972-1973 season the now defunct SV Admira Wiener Neustadt from the local area also used the playing facilities.
The record attendance for a match at the Stadion was set on the 14th September 1963 against Austria Wien which saw just over 12,000 fans witness the home side sneak a 1 nil victory, much to the surprise and delight of the supporters. With the capacity currently sitting at 10,000 after the most recent round of renovations which occurred in 2008, the record is unlikely to be beaten any time soon.
Coming in at a cost of 1.2 million euros, stands were reconfigured just in time for the 2007/2009 season and new floodlights were installed after modernisation which had occurred in the 1980s was now becoming antiquated – a fact not helped by Wiener Neustadt being relegated to the Austrian second division in 1995 which severely greatly the club’s revenues.
The highest profile match the stadium has hosted to date was probably the 1965 Cup Winners Cup match against FC Universitatea Cluj, with the travelling Romanian team winning 3 nil, making the newly introduced “away goals” rule for the reason completely irrelevant.
This appearance in Europe came about after defeating domestic rival LASK Linz in Austrian Cup of the previous season with the club regularly participating in the Austrian Bundesliga since the 2009/2010 season.
