The Red Bull Arena is the second largest stadium in eastern Germany, part of the Leipzig Sports Forum and the RB Leipzig stadium.
In 1994, the stadium was closed due to its poor state of construction. In 2000, the ground was broken for the construction of the new modern football arena with around 43,000 seats within the central stadium's old wall. Subsequently, the arena hosted matches during the 2006 FIFA World Cup. In 2010 the building was officially renamed Red Bull Arena and is now the home stadium of the first league RB Leipzig team.
