A stadium shouldn’t be too big, but it should be comfortable and kept in great condition so that everyone feels right at home. SC Freiburg fans love their “living room” on the Dreisam. As it turns 65 years old, the fact that the stadium on Schwarzwaldstraße is aging a bit is something that the fans prefer to overlook. Fans also forgive the stadium’s few imperfections, such as the pitch being five metres shorter than most, the seats being on a slope from south to north or the pillars that hinder viewing from some seats in the main stand. The atmosphere is unaffected by these flaws. Matchdays at the Dreisamstadion with our fans were always a cause to celebrate.
