The Ostseestadion is a football stadium in the Hanseatic city of Rostock , which is used as a venue in particular for home games of FC Hansa Rostock . The Baltic Stadion GmbH & Co. KG with FC Hansa Rostock as the sole limited partner is the operator of the Baltic Sea stadium and owns the leasehold on the relevant property. For the use of the arena as well as for the use of the training areas on the same property (three turf, one artificial turf and one tennis court), FC Hansa pays a rent to Ostseestadion GmbH & Co. KG, depending on the club's division

The stadium has a maximum of 29,000 seats that are completely covered. This includes 20,000 seats including 1,000 business seats and 9,000 standing places. The latter should be able to be converted into 5,000 seats at international games. The arena also offers 26 VIP boxes.


The Ostseestadion is located in Rostock's Hansaviertel near the city center. It is surrounded by hospitals from the University of Rostock , schools, the Barnstorfer Forest , the Rostock ice rink , several practice areas and an athletics stadium.

It can be reached with local public transport from various parts of Rostock by bus ( Ostseestadion stop ), S-Bahn (S-Bahn stations Holbeinplatz and Parkstraße ) and tram ( Holbeinplatz stop ).


The history of the Ostseestadion in Rostock is divided into two sections: On the one hand, there is the construction and subsequent use of a general stadium at the beginning of the 1950s, shortly after the GDR was founded. On the other hand, the time after the political change in 1989/90 and the increasing competitive situation and commercialization of football. Rostock reacted to this and from 2000 onwards the old and now dilapidated stadium was replaced by a modern, purely football stadium.

Old Ostseestadion

Until the 1950s, the Volksstadion , built between 1923 and 1928 in the immediate vicinity of today's Ostseestadion, was the largest stadium in the Hanseatic city of Rostock, which is said to have offered space for up to 20,000 people in the 1930s. The area of ​​today's Ostseestadion, which was planned by Erich zu Putlitz with sports facilities during the time of National Socialism, as well as the "Platz des Friedens" in front of it, was already used for political rallies and as a Nazi parade ground, which was consecrated in June 1939 during a Gau party rally received in front of tens of thousands of participants. The mounds of earth raised for this purpose were later used for the foundation when the stadium was built.

After the founding of the GDR, a football team for the upper leagues should also be established in Rostock, which is why the construction of a new stadium was planned that would meet the expected audience and be built as part of the sports forum with a swimming pool and ice rink. It was designed as a general sports stadium and therefore also had an athletics track with six lanes. Because of the small amount of money available to implement the project, the National Reconstruction Agency called on the Rostock population to support it in the form of voluntary work and donations . In the early 1950s, thousands of people worked on the construction of the Ostseestadion, which enabled savings of 928,018.20 GDR marks through more than 230,000 hours of voluntary work, corresponding to a memorial stone in front of the stadium .

On June 27, 1954, the Ostseestadion, initially offering 18,000 seats, was the final of the GDR youth soccer championship ( Schwerin - Chemie Zeitz 1: 3) and an international soccer encounter between the GDR youngsters against the Hungarian first division club Vasas Győr (0: 2), and a junior match between Stahl Helbra and Wismut Neuwürschnitz (4-0) was opened in an unfinished state. It served SC Empor Rostock, and later FC Hansa Rostock, from November 14, 1954 after the premiere game against Chemie Karl-Marx-Stadt (0: 0) as a venue - the grandstand was still under construction that Sunday. The Rostock audience was able to get a foretaste of football at the first official international match on the coast against Poland on September 26th. Later the grandstand (3.686 Places) a roof, which was completed in 1968.

At the end of the 1960s, construction began on a 750 lux floodlight system , which was completed and installed on time for the 21st anniversary of the GDR . The inauguration of the four towering, 56-meter-high and 34-tonne “light towers” ​​took place on Friday, October 23, 1970 during the league game against 1. FC Magdeburg . Since then they have adorned the silhouette of the Hanseatic city of Rostock and are visible from afar. In 1991, a more powerful floodlight system, now 1380 lux, was installed, which at the time was the brightest stadium lighting in Germany in addition to the floodlights of the Düsseldorf Rheinstadion.

The stadium tower on the south side of the Ostseestadions received a display board in 1973.

The last renovation work on the old stadium, which finally had a capacity of 25,577 seats, involved the renovation of the grandstand (1991) and the installation of a computer-controlled display panel after the old display tower was torn down (1992).

New Ostseestadion

From February 2000 the Ostseestadion was gradually rebuilt within 16 months, making it a pure football arena. First, the old north curve including the approximately ten meter high triumphal arch-shaped stone portal, the former “tunnel” or “gate” to the venue, as well as the “heart of the stadium”, the approximately five meter wide and four meter high marathon gate, was dismantled to complete the first back gate. The same gate was not scrapped, but restored by the company MZS Metall-Zaun-Stahlbau GmbH & Co. KG from Bargeshagen. Little by little, the old walls in the oval gave way while the game was running, and in the summer of 2000 the former main grandstand was finally demolished. In this phase of construction, the Ostseestadion only had 15,000 seats.

The floodlight masts of the old stadium, long since become a landmark, have been preserved. In 1999, in preparation for the new construction of the Ostseestadion, new spotlights were installed in the masts. Each individual unit contains 51 lights. There are also 13 additional spotlights below the grandstands. The total of 256 lamps illuminate the arena with up to 1700 lux, which corresponds to the standard of the UEFA Champions League . A suitable luminosity can be regulated in three different switching levels and in the event of a power failure, the floodlights are operated by an emergency diesel.

During construction, the new arena was given an LCD display board, which, however, cannot be seen from the south stand that encompasses the guest block, and turf heating was installed. In addition, the new stadium received 60 high-performance loudspeakers installed by the Warnemünder electronics company Meißner at a height of up to 22 meters. The general contractor was the Dutch company HBM . The Hanseatic City of Rostock contributed 9.2 million and the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania with 10 million Deutschmarks to finance the 55 million D-Mark project .

The football stadium , which now holds 29,000 seats , was officially inaugurated in front of 25,100 spectators on the rainy August 4, 2001 with the Bundesliga match between Hansas and Bayer Leverkusen (3-0). From a sporting point of view, it will take some time before the main user of the new stadium, FC Hansa, will feel at home. During the entire first half of the 2001/2002 season, Rostock's spectators got just two home wins - a 3-0 win against 1. FC Köln on October 20, 2001 and a 1-0 win against record champions FC Bayern Munich on December 15, 2001 .

Renaming and renaming

On July 2, 2007, the financial services provider Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB) was awarded the contract to purchase the naming rights for the Ostseestadion, which has since been known as the DKB-Arena . The contract initially had a term of ten years and includes an option to extend. The renaming happened, as with the name sales of some other football stadiums, despite protests from fans who saw in the abandonment of the name Ostseestadion a loss of the club tradition. Even the name of the bus stop, right in front of the north stand, was renamed from Ostseestadion to Stadion . On May 13, 2015 it was announced that the DKB would comply with the request of those responsible in Rostock and return the naming rights to Hansa Rostock two years before the contract expires. With this courtesy, the DKB made an important contribution to the future of the association. Since May 15, 2015, the stadium has officially been given the highly recognizable name Ostseestadion again , on which it was christened one day later in the home game against third division club Energie Cottbus . At the request of the Rostock fans' scene at the responsible local authority, the bus stop in front of the arena was also renamed Ostseestadion . For the period after 2017 there is a contract between Ostseestadion GmbH & Co. KG and Infront Sports & Media for the further marketing of the stadium name until 2026. Due to the inadequate profitability of name marketing in the 3rd soccer league , the then CEO Michael Dahlmann closed renaming it again.

Further expansion

In December 2010, a 9,500 square meter solar system was completed on the roof of the Ostseestadion , the operator Paribus northenergy intends to use to produce around 600,000 kWh of electricity annually. By leasing the roof area, Hansa Rostock earns a six-figure sum.

The original and restored marathon gate of the original stadium was re-erected behind the west stand at the end of July 2014 and integrated into the fence on the site. Thus a piece of tradition returned to the Ostseestadion. The inauguration took place on August 16, 2014 during the Fan and Family Day.

In cooperation with the Dutch company "SportLED Solution Provider", digital boards were installed in the stadium in 2017. They reach a total length of around 240 meters and were positioned in front of the north, west and south stands. These digital LED advertising boards replaced static advertising boards in the Ostseestadion and were used for the first time on July 17, 2017 in the test match between FC Hansa and VfL Wolfsburg .

The old 40 square meter multifunctional display board, which has not been functional since November 2018, was dismantled in March 2019 and replaced by a 42 square meter video wall. It shows pictures and videos in 16: 9 format, cost the operator around 230,000 euros and was installed by the Rostock electronics company Meißner . A conversion from analog to digital technology took place. Around 1.2 kilometers of new fiber optic cables were laid for this purpose. The inauguration took place on April 13, 2019 in a third division game against FC Carl Zeiss Jena .

Planned investments

The almost 50-year-old masts of the floodlight system, which are in need of renovation, will no longer receive an operating permit from 2025, according to an expert opinion. Various modernization and new building models were discussed at the annual general meeting of FC Hansa Rostock on December 1, 2019. The majority of the members voted for a 1: 1 replica of the floodlight masts - the calculated costs are estimated at up to 6.6 million euros. A renewal of the underfloor heating and grandstand seats is also planned in the medium term.

Stadium newspaper

As the stadium newspaper the & from the Baltic Stadion GmbH Co. KG published appears since 2011/12, after several name changes and publisher changes, Kogge . It contains the latest information and is available in a handy A5 format. The A-Team has had its own stadium newspaper for the second team since 1997.

Usage and events

The Ostseestadion in Rostock is a multifunctional venue and is not only suitable for holding football games or concerts, but also for trade fairs, presentations and exhibitions.

Soccer (men)

Admission ticket for the DFB Cup game SV Warnemünde against Borussia Dortmund . The game took place on August 14, 1997 in the Ostseestadion.

The old Ostseestadion was the home ground of FC Hansa Rostock from 1954 to 2001 (until 1965 in the predecessor club SC Empor Rostock ), so that until 1991, especially games of the top two divisions in GDR football ( Oberliga and Liga ) and, since 1991, especially games of the first and second Bundesliga took place in the Ostseestadion.

By winning the State Cup in 1997, SV Warnemünde qualified for the DFB Cup 1997/98 . In the first main round of this competition, the Warnemünde team was drawn from none other than the reigning Champions League winner Borussia Dortmund . For reasons of logistics and capacity, the Rostock club from Warnemünde preferred to play this game, which took place on August 14, 1997, in the Ostseestadion. That Thursday, the lower-class club from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania lost against the Bundesliga team in front of an officially 6,500 spectator with 0: 8.

In the new Ostseestadion, designed as a football stadium, the FC Hansa Rostock's point games in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd league have been taking place since 2001 . In the 2008/09 and 2009/10 seasons, the second team of FC Hansa also played their regional league games in the Ostseestadion.

For the final of the German A-Juniors soccer championship on June 23, 2013 between FC Hansa Rostock and VfL Wolfsburg, 18,500 spectators streamed into the Ostseestadion.

For safety reasons, the A junior home game of FC Hansa against FC St. Pauli took place on December 7, 2014 and the B junior home game of Hansa against RB Leipzig on March 5, 2017 in the Ostseestadion.

Ghost games

The history of the Ostseestadions shows two ghost games , which were caused by misconduct by fans of FC Hansa. The second division game between FC Hansa Rostock and Dynamo Dresden (2-2) in December 2011 was the first game in front of empty stands in the stadium on the Baltic coast. In January 2017, the third division game between Hansa Rostock and Jahn Regensburg (0-0) was held in camera. The operator lost income of at least 250,000 euros per game without fan support.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany in 2020, the number of ghost games in the Ostseestadion added up to seven. The DFB decided on 22 May 2020, the continuation of the third league season 2019/20 with ghosts games based on a concept created hygiene. For FC Hansa Rostock, this meant that the last five home games of the season against Waldhof Mannheim , 1. FC Magdeburg , Carl Zeiss Jena , 1. FC Kaiserslautern and Uerdingen had to take place in front of a ghostly backdrop.

International matches

The Ostseestadion served as the venue for eight international football matches of the German Democratic Republic 1 . After that it was used by the all-German national team 2 on March 27, 2002 and October 7, 2006 as a venue.

In August 2011, DFB President Theo Zwanziger stated that he could "very well imagine" an international match in Rostock in 2013. However, this would then be a benefit game in favor of the Egidius Braun Foundation, as the Ostseestadion does not have the capacity of at least 40,000 seats required by the DFB for official international matches.

Benefit games

As early as May 2012, the German record champions FC Bayern Munich agreed to play a charity match with the ex-Bundesliga club Hansa Rostock, who was threatened by its existence. The third division Hansa then received the reigning German champions on July 14, 2013 in front of 28,000 spectators in the sold-out Ostseestadion. The 4-0 defeat against Bayern was a minor matter in view of the number of world-class players from Munich, who came with ex-Hansa player Toni Kroos , among others . The income from this game was used to consolidate FC Hansa Rostock.

On the initiative of its main sponsor Gazprom, the Bundesliga club FC Schalke 04 held a charity match at the third-class FC Hansa in the Ostseestadion in July 2014. The proceeds went exclusively to social projects in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, above all to the Hansa Rostock and I project launched by Hansa and the Hanseatic City of Rostock in 2011 . 12,500 spectators were enthusiastic about the game against the Champions League participant from the Ruhrpott, who won the game 3-0.

Several former companions of Beinlichs, such as Oliver Neuville , Martin Pieckenhagen or Perry Bräutigam , agreed for the game.

Exactly 20 years after Hansa's greatest success in the club's history - winning the championship and the associated first promotion to the Bundesliga and winning the cup - the Rostock team met on May 4, 2011 under the motto The return of the Heroes for an anniversary game.

Under the direction of referee Markus Merk , the Rostock team led by Oliver Neuville , Mohamed Emara , Uwe Ehlers , Sławomir Majak and Thomas Gansauge again won against the Bochum team around Peter Peschel , Maurizio Gaudino and Dariusz Wosz in this anniversary game . The game ended 7: 6 in front of almost 6,000 spectators.
