FC Ingolstadt 04

Short history 

Audi Sportpark was built to provide newly formed merger club FC Ingolstadt with a new and modern home.

The stadium got built at the terrains of the Bayernoil refineries on the south-eastern edge of the city. It came at a cost of about €20 million, which was completely paid for by the club and their main sponsor Audi.
