Alemannia Aachen

Short history

The New Tivoli is a football stadium in the Sport Park Soers in Aachen, Germany. It replaces the old Tivol nearby and hosts the home matches of Alemannia Aachen. The stadium has a capacity of 32,960 spectators (11,681 standing spectators). 

About 4,2 million Euro of the construction costs were financed by bonds mainly targeted at supporters of Alemannia Aachen.

The first match in the new stadium was played against Lierse SK (Belgium), but was closed for the public. The first Bundesliga-match took place on 17 August 2009 against FC St. Pauli. Aachen lost 0-5, the highest home-defeat in Aachen's history.
The first international match was played on 4 September 2009 when the German national U-21 team played their first match of the 2011 UEFA European Football Championship qualification against San Marino (6-0).
