Stadion An der Altern Försterei

Stadion An der Altern Försterei is located in Köpenick, Berlin and is the largest single-purpose football stadium in the German capital of Berlin. It has been home to football club 1. FC Union Berlin and its forerunners since its opening in 1920. The stadium’s capacity was last redeveloped in 2009 and expanded in 2013. Some of the redevelopment work was carried out by over 2,300 Union Berlin supporters volunteering their services. The stadium became also known for events like the annual “Weihnachtssingen” (Christmas Carols Event) and the “WM-Wohnzimmer” (World Cup Living Room) in 2014. SC Union Oberschöneweide (forerunner of today’s 1. FC Union Berlin) had to find a new home ground in 1920, as its former pitch had been built over by developers with residential buildings. The club moved a little further away from the city to the north-western part of the borough of Köpenick. The new stadium was officially opened in 1920.
