WWK Arena Augsburg, Augsburg

3.6




Augsburg Arena, currently known commercially as the WWK Arena (German pronunciation: [ˌveːveːˈkaː ʔaˌʁeːna], officially stylised as WWK ARENA) is a football stadium in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany. It is used mostly for football matches and hosts the home matches of FC Augsburg.


The stadium has a capacity of 30,660 with 19,060 seats and standing room for 11,034. A second phase of construction could expand capacity to 49,000 in the future. It replaced the club's previous home stadium, Rosenaustadion.


During the time of designing and constructing the stadium, it was called "Augsburg Arena" [ˈaʊksbʊʁk ʔaˌʁeːna]. It was opened as "Impuls Arena" ([ɪmˈpʊls ʔaˌʁeːna], officially stylised as impuls arena), and was renamed "SGL Arena" ([ˌɛsɡeːˈʔɛl ʔaˌʁeːna], officially stylised as SGL arena) after SGL Carbon acquired the naming rights for the structure in May 2011. The contract had a term of seven years and began on 1 July 2011. On 1 July 2015 the stadium naming rights were acquired by WWK, an insurance company, changing the official name of the stadium to "WWK ARENA".
Augsburg was one of the official host cities of the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup and the subsequent 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. The Impuls arena was the location of several matches during the group stage and the quarterfinals. During the FIFA-competitions it was renamed "FIFA Women's World Cup Stadium Augsburg".


WWK Arena is the first climate-neutral football stadium in the world. The carbon neutrality was achieved by six ecological heat pumps (40 m deep), which produce the desired temperature via heat exchangers. A bio natural gas boiler also supplies the necessary energy during peak load times at a game. In 2017, a new stadium facade will be made for the WWK Arena.

  • Was in Munich for the weekend. So we decided Ausburg vs Dortmund. Final score 3-5 and Haaland scored a debut hat trick. The stadium itself was great and transport was simple to use.  more »
  • This was our first-ever Bundeliga match, and we were really excited to take in the experience. We arrived by special game-only tram, which leaves you about a 10-15 minute walk from the stadium...  more »

  • Awesome stadium of the FC Augsburg. Good reachable via highway and public transport. All accessible via wheelchair and good view from this seats. Sadly no Apple Pay/ Google Pay even when their cards are using NFC. Also payment via FCA App is provided. Staff and fans are friendly and polite.
  • Stadium was good once you got there. It's quite a treck from the town centre. Friendly and good beer and food.
