The stadium was opened on 10 July 1976 with a football match between BSG Motor Babelsberg and the Olympic team of the German Democratic Republic. The original capacity of 15,000 was reached only once as the East Germany national football team faced Malta. On 9 July 2001, the SV Babelsberg 03 had its highest attendance in their club history when 14,700 spectators witnessed Babelsberg's win over Fortuna Düsseldorf.
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.

Famous quotes containing the word history:
“The thing that struck me forcefully was the feeling of great age about the place. Standing on that old parade ground, which is now a cricket field, I could feel the dead generations crowding me. Here was the oldest settlement of freedmen in the Western world, no doubt. Men who had thrown off the bands of slavery by their own courage and ingenuity. The courage and daring of the Maroons strike like a purple beam across the history of Jamaica.”
—Zora Neale Hurston (18911960)
“Social history might be defined negatively as the history of a people with the politics left out.”
—G.M. (George Macaulay)
“The custard is setting; meanwhile
I not only have my own history to worry about
But am forced to fret over insufficient details related to large
Unfinished concepts that can never bring themselves to the point
Of being, with or without my help, if any were forthcoming.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
