Gummersbach

The number one address for handball: Heiner-Brand-Platz 1 in Gummersbach. BAM Sports has designed the perfect backdrop for one of Western Europe’s major sports at this new arena on the site of a former boiler manufacturing plant. A multipurpose centre that meets the most advanced standards, it has space for more than 4,000 fans and visitors to top team VfL Gummersbach’s home games, including eight luxurious boxes. An impressive foyer welcomes handball aficionados, who are subsequently guided to the stands and catering areas via a spectators’ promenade.

The interior of the arena is convertible and hence extremely flexible. Three out of the four stands are retractable, which means two fully functional handball practice courts for VfL or one practice court and three school sports fields can be created as required. Optimal use can thus be made of the facility, which was completed by BAM Sports in the record time of only ten months, even when no professional handball activities are taking place.
