The stadium was opened on 28 July 1952,[2] on the grounds of the former Froschberg-Brickworks. The stadium is also known as "Auf der Gugl", the name of the hill on which it is situated.

It was used for football matches and hosted most matches of FC Blau-Weiß Linz and the top matches of LASK Linz.

In July 2020, LASK presented their plans to build a new stadium on the site of the old stadium, in which the groundbreaking should take place in early 2021. Completion is currently scheduled for February 2023.[3][4]
