The stadium was originally opened on 11 September 1910 under the name Sportplatz am Ronhofer Weg gegenüber dem Zentral-Friedhof[2] (English: Sports ground on Ronhof Lane opposite the central cemetery). It was expanded several times (max. 28,000 capacity) but later reduced to 15,500 and today holds a capacity crowd of 18,000.[2] It was expanded following Fürth's promotion to the Bundesliga. It remained the Bundesliga's smallest stadium, though.
