The Mercedes-Benz Arena, home to the top-tier Bundesliga VfB Stuttgart, is more than just a football stadium. It has played an important part in German history, having hosted both the German’s first international football match after World War II in 1950 as well as the first match after German reunification in 1990. In both cases the ever-neutral Switzerland was the opponent.
The current stadium design allows for over 60,000 onlookers and is considered one of the finest in Europe. Please join the IWCS for a 90-minute tour of the stadium on Saturday, July 23rd at 10:30. The tour includes the press rooms, media hall, mixed-zone, business suits, fan meeting point, standing area in the Cannstatter Kurve, changing room area, players tunnel, and inner stadium.
This tour is open to all members and their families. Please note that while there is no minimum age, strollers are not permitted on the tour.
Given the tendency for these type of tours to fill up quickly, we have booked two simultaneous tours meaning we can have as many as 50 participants! The cost is €5 per person attending, paid in advance. The IWCS will sponsor the remainder of the tour costs.
Last day to RSVP is June 16th using the contact form below or in the pending Facebook event. Cancellations after this date are non-refundable.
