Volksparkstadion is the home ground of German Bundesliga club Hamburger SV.

This German football ground is the seventh-largest football stadium in Germany by capacity.

In 1998 HSV decided to replace the unpopular Volksparkstadion with a new stadium building, not only to help Germany get ready to host the Football World Cup, but also because it was getting increasingly more difficult to meet the safety standards with such an old facility.
