Since 2010/11, our home games have been played at the Red Bull Arena. The stadium has become a real fortress for Die Roten Bullen, with a magical atmosphere created by the supporters. The Red Bull Arena was oficially opened on 24th July with a friendly against Bundesliga side FC Schalke 04, with 21,566 people in attendance as RBL were narrowly beaten 2-1. The first goal in the stadium was scored in that game by Nico Frommer, while the first-ever competitive goal came from Steven Lewerenz in a 1-1 draw with Türkiyemspor Berlin on 6th August 2010. The record attendance was set on 4th March 2015 in the DFB-Pokal match against VfL Wolfsburg, with 43,348 fans packing inside the stadium. Following various bits of renovation work, the Red Bull Arena currently has a seating capacity of 42,959 (all covered) and is regularly sold-out for Bundesliga matches.
