The last renovation was held in 2002, and the stadium now has its current capacity. About one year later, the Women's Bundesliga match between 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and 1. FFC Frankfurt was seen by 7,900 people. This was the women's Bundesliga match with the highest ever attendance. Turbine's all-time attendance record was 8,677 people who saw the UEFA Women's Cup final second leg against Djurgårdens IF Dam.
