Those who think this is only a soccer place are wrong. The saying is „It’s more than a game“.
ALWAYS A GOOD GAME: EVENTS IN THE MERKUR ARENA. IT´S NOT JUST PUTTING THE ROUND INTO THE CORNER. ALSO OFFSIDE THE GRASS THERE IS PLENTY GOING ON.
Mostly king soccer reigns in the Merkur Arena. Up to 15.312 fans on the stands cause goosebumps. But the Merkur Arena can do more then being a scenery for exciting sports events. The biggest stadium of the city is not only home to the Bundesliga team SK Puntigamer Sturm Graz and ground for American Football.
It is even a location for seminars, meetings, galas and business events. The elegant VIP area for the suitable scenery and the impressive flood lighting (1200 Lux) makes for the right mood. Very similar to soccer indeed.
