The stadium was opened in 1936 and was originally named after SA officer Horst Wessel, before it was renamed the Kurt-Wabbel-Stadion, in honour of Kurt Wabbel following the end of World War Two. The stadium was used by BSG Turbine Halle and HFC Chemie. HFC Chemie later became Hallescher FC.[1]

It was closed in 2010 and replaced by Erdgas Sportpark.
