History and description

Austria Vienna did not have a permanent home until the 1960s, moving instead between different grounds and using the large Praterstadion for their important matches. In 1973, the club tested various grounds and ended up at a ground that had previously been used by a side of Czech immigrants.

Austria Wien played their first match at the ground, known then as Ceske Srdce, on 26 August 1973.

A few months after Franz Horr, the president of the Vienna Football Association, lobbied intensively for a new stadium, he died and the club and city decided to name the stadium after him.

Plans were made for an extensive redevelopment, however these got consistently delayed, which necessitated Austria moving out again.

In 1982, it took until a new stand got built to officially open the Franz-Horr-Stadion with the Cup final between Austria and Wacker Innsbruck on 22 August.

The newly built North Stand complemented an extensively renovated South Stand, and four years later a new covered terrace was opened on the western end of the stadium.

The Franz-Horr-Stadion remained unchanged for the next decade until in 1998, a new Main Stand replaced the renovated South Stand.

The stadium underwent a last change in 2008 when a new two-tiered East Stand opened. In addition to renovations being performed on the West Stand, the stadium underwent other changes during this time period, such as the installation of new Scoreboards and entrances.

In 2010, the Austrian government reached a naming rights deal with insurance firm Generali. As a result, the new name for the stadium was Generali Arena.

In the summer of 2016, extensive renovations to Generali Arena began. The stadium closed for two years while two new stands were built that would form a whole with the two-tiered East Stand. The Main Stand remained standing, resulting in a capacity of 17,500 seats. Austria played their home games at Ernst Happel Stadion during this time.

Works were completed in 2018 and the completed stadium reopened in July 2018.
