History and description
Allianz Stadion is the recently opened new stadium of Rapid Wien. It replaces the old Gerhard Hanappi Stadion, which stood at the same site.
Plans for the new stadium were confirmed in early 2014, and demolition of the old stadium started later in the year. Allianz Stadion officially opened on 13 July 2016 with a friendly between Rapid Wien and Chelsea (2-0).
Allianz Stadion has an all-seater capacity of 24,000 seats, which gets increased to 28,600 when part of the seating is converted into standing places. The stadium furthermore has 2,500 business seats and 40 VIP lodges.
In June 2014, Rapid announced a sponsorship deal with insurance firm Allianz, resulting in the name Allianz Stadion for the new arena.
