75000 fans singing "The Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond" should be interesting!

There are so many clubs in Germany, like this one, that should be bigger than the likes of Leverkusen and Wolfsburg. Money talks...

^ more than money, it's also a lot about club management. Germany is unique in this regard, as pro clubs have to be fan-owned (with few exceptions). It is possible to delegate the responsabilities and establish a company that runs the club professionally, like it is a Bayern, Borussia Dortmund and others, but there are still clubs that have kept hand-on control and the decisions are run through the board which can comprise of poets, civil society people etc... No wonder such clubs are underachieving, like Hamburg or Stuttgart (although Stuttgart winning the title a decade ago apparently breathed new life into this model, making people think it's still viable). I remember Rafael Honigstein, the most prominent German football expert in the English speaking world, saying that Hamburger SV otherwise has the city size, financial potential, fan pool, talent pool, historical pedigree etc. to be the equals of Bayern.

Leverkusen = Bayer AG , multinational chemical and pharamceutical company,
revenue in 2014 € 43 billion
Wolfsburg = Volkswagen Group, revenue in 2014: $ 244 billion

Any questions?

Hard to siagree. Hamburg and Frankfurt fit that bill perfectly.

StadiumDB.com reported today about a new possibility: 1.FC Koln developing a new stadium away from the historical Müngersdorfer Stadium site. This may either be just a negotiation strategy or a viable long-term solution for the Billy Goats.

Perfect set up in Köln (thanks to Japanese colleague Yuhei) - Bayern-Leipzig on one screen - the Rhine derby live...

He hasn't answered my question but I think that he was sitting in the lowest row of the press area.

How much money do Bayer and VW put into their clubs each year?

Working group checks stadium expansion in Cologne

The town administration of the city of Cologne has established a working group to check the stadium expansion in Müngersdorf. The reason for this is the intention of 1. FC Köln to play in a larger stadium.

The current home theater, the RheinEnergieSTADION, has a capacity of 49,968 seats. As Stadionwelt reported , the 1. FC Cologne wants to expand the stadium to 75,000 seats, or, if an expansion is not possible, build a new stadium.

The working group consists, among other things, of representatives of the environmental office, the green space office, the city map, the Cologne transport company and the sports company. Franz-Josef Höing, head of the building, told the local media that it would soon be possible to make an assessment after the work was done.

They've sold out 12 games this season so an expansion defintely seems justified.

Not sure how nice it would look though. The upper tier seems to be pretty steep already, so you can't add a third, steeper tier. That means you would get a very large upper tier with a relatively small lower tier.

Maybe if they want to really make a big step, they should build a new stadium with much more business facilities, to generate more revenue. Of course that would be more expensive though.

A Megastadium for Both 1. FC Koln and the Olympics?

As of mid-2017, there were two options on the table: the expansion of the existing RheinEnergieStadion, or the construction of a brand-new stadium for 1. FC Koln. A third option has recently surfaced: Creating a megastadium for other events in Cologne, too, in case the expansion of RheinEnergieStadion is not possible.

More details at StadiumDB.com.

Stadium expansion probably difficult to implement

In a published interim report, the auditors of a possible expansion of the RheinEnergieSTADIONS list a long list of problems. An expansion now appears much more unlikely.

After the publication of the report it seems hard to imagine that the 1. FC Cologne will expand the RheinEnergieSTADION . Even if the experts instructed the report to be classified as unreliable at the time, the interim report reveals numerous hurdles. Three different variants are tested.

The small variant provides for an expansion of the stadium to 60,000 seats. This variant seems to be achievable, but the club considers this solution not to be economical, according to the Cologne City Council. The two large versions offer an increase in capacity to 67,000 and 73,000 spectators. In both cases a new supremacy would emerge. The entire stadium would have to be expanded.

In addition to the technically demanding implementation, extensive measures in the stadium environment would also be necessary. Among other things, additional areas of the protected Abel buildings and tree rows would be needed in the vicinity of the stadium. Further necessary measures would be an increase in the number of parking spaces, an extension of the tram station, bicycle parking spaces, additional bus stops and a protection concept for the residents.

Parallel to the examination of an extension, the search for suitable areas for a possible new building is under way. By the end of the year the 1. FC Cologne would like to make a decision for one of the two variants.

Feasibility study presented

The planning office Albert Speer & Partner presented the feasibility study of a possible expansion of the Rheinenergie stadium on Wednesday

The result: Theoretically, a structural expansion of the stadium at the Müngersdorf location is possible, but is associated with high planning and legal hurdles. In addition, large investments would be necessary.

It is clear from the concept that the extension desired by the FC to a capacity of 75,000 seats does not seem possible.

FC continues to explore alternative sites

"This statement is, of course, unfortunate," said FC President Werner Spinner. For the FC particularly bitter: even in a minimal variant with an increase to only 60,000 seats, the expansion according to the study is very difficult to realize.

"Nevertheless, we would like to continue the positive dialogue with the Lord Mayor and the City of Cologne in order to find a future solution that is both viable for the FC as well as for the city," says Spinner. "Regardless of the fact, it is important for the 1. FC Cologne to examine in parallel the question of alternative locations for a possible stadium construction."
