History and description

The new home for FC Olympia, located in the eastern part of the city, had seating for 2,000 spectators. The stadium at An der Alten Försterei was built in 1920 as FC Olympia, the predecessor of Union, had to move out of their previous home. The new home for FC Olympia, located in the eastern part of the city, seated 2,000 spectators. The official opening of the Sportplatz Sadowa stadium took place on 7 August 1920 with a friendly match between German champions Nurnberg and Cracow. However, the club had already played their first match at the stadium five months earlier against Viktoria 89.

The stadium initially could only hold just over 10,000 spectators, nearly all of which were standing and FC Olympia would regularly move to higher-capacity grounds for important matches.

It took until 1968 for the stadium to undergo a first major redevelopment, which included the enlargement of the terrace on the long side to a capacity of 15,000 places. In 1978, it was the turn of the stands behind the goal to be enlarged, which increased capacity to 23,500.

However, the stadium quickly fell into disrepair and safety measures reduced capacity. As the club lacked the finances to improve the ground, it took until the beginning of the new century for the stadium to get a small set of improvements.

In the early 2000s, the club needed a more long-term solution, so it looked to build an entire new stadium with a capacity of 30,000 people. However, the club lacked the funding and plans shifted to renovating Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.

In 2008, work began on installing new terraces along three sides of the stadium. In 2012, reconstruction work on the main stand commenced. The stand reopened one year later with a friendly match against Celtic.
