SC Freiburg may still have to play in the Black Forest Stadium in the coming season: The Breisgau’s new arena is in danger of not being finished at the start of the 2021/22 season.
SC Freiburg actually wanted to move from the Black Forest Stadium to the new and modern SC Stadium during the current season. However, it was recognized early on that nothing would come of it and the move was postponed until the start of the 2021/22 season – but this project is now in danger of failing.
The corona pandemic has further delayed the construction work on the new stadium, as the Bundesliga club announced in a statement: “According to the general contractor of the new stadium, the pandemic also affected the work on the stadium construction site in Wolfswinkel. In addition, there were and are Problems in the technical interior design, which meant that promised completion dates could not be met. “
The bottom line is that there is no guarantee that the first home game of the coming season can be played in the new stadium. “SC Freiburg is still planning to play the home games of its professionals in the new stadium from the start in the 2021/22 season. With the work still to be done on the stadium construction site, every day will count”, it continues.
If the move could not be carried out by August, the Freiburg team would initially play in the Black Forest Stadium in the coming season and, if fans are allowed, the tickets would be awarded by lottery. In spite of everything, season ticket sales for the new arena are now being continued, as construction work is “on the home straight”. At the moment, no one knows exactly when the finish line will be crossed.
