The FBA candidates undertook a two-day trip to Germany to visit four different stadiums: the Commerzbank Arena, Veltins Arena, Signal Iduna Park and Merkur Spielarena. The aim was to gain a deeper understanding of each construct through presentations and stadium tours and imparted wisdom from representatives of each Bundesliga club. Expertly organised by ESSMA, the trip was a massive success that left the candidates tired, inspired, a practical application to the theoretical knowledge gained and four completely unconnected and different approaches of how to maximise the potential of stadiums both in football and beyond.

In April 2018, Aberdeen FC and the Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust (AFCCT) received final planning permission for their proposed new stadium, training and community facilities from the relevant authorities at a site to the west of the city. This was an important step towards the realisation of Aberdeen FC’s long held ambition.

Twickenham Stadium has been on the same site since 1909, but remains in a constant state of evolution to ensure a world-class offering.
