1. FSV Mainz 05 moved into their new home in 2011, OPEL ARENA. The new stadium contributed to the growth of the club and positively impacted the safety and security inside and around the stadium. The club is constantly improving and fulfilling the demands of both their fans and the German Professional Football League (DFL).
