Saved from catastrophe: Dynamo Dresden, the tradition-steeped football club, was in serious danger of having its license revoked owing to structural deficiencies in its stadium. The solution: a major contract for BAM Sports. The stadium specialist built a modern football arena for the yellow-and-black jerseyed Dynamo players – without interrupting the fixture list. The individual stands were dismantled one at a time and replaced with new ones in line with modern standards. The Arnhold Bad, for instance, a nearby swimming pool, had always been in the shadow of the stadium, so the new building was shifted by about 90 feet, moving it closer to Lennéstraße.
It now accommodates some 32,400 spectators, including about 10,800 in standing-only areas. It also provides not only around 1,300 business seats but also 22 VIP boxes, which were sold out even before the 17-month construction project began. They offer the best possible view of the stadium, which has already written football history as the venue for the FIFA Women's World Cup 2011. The pub integrated in the fan section, with a direct view of and access to the stadium, is especially noteworthy. --> Watch the film
