History and description
The MDCC-Arena, previously called Stadion Magdeburg, was built to provide Magdeburg with a modern home. It replaced the old Ernst-Grube Stadion, which had stood at the same site.
Construction of the new stadium started in 2005, and the new Stadion Magdeburg officially opened on 10 December 2006. The first match was played 9 days later when Magdeburg hosted Eintracht Braunschweig in a friendly (0-0).
In 2009, Stadion Magdeburg changed name to MDCC-Arena following a naming rights sponsorship deal with local telecommunications firm MDCC.
