Gelsenkirchen - AufSchalke Arena

The AufSchalke Arena opened in August 2001 and within three years hosted a Champions League final, with Porto winners over Monaco in May 2004.
Now a World Cup awaits and the crowning moment will be a quarter-final.
The 52,000-capacity ground is at the cutting edge of stadium technology, incorporating electronic admission, a removable pitch and retractable roof.
Schalke 04's home is now known as the Veltins-Arena after the naming rights were sold to the German brewery.
