Uerdingen used to play in the Grotenburg-Stadion in Krefeld-Bockum. The stadium is currently undergoing renovations and during this time Uerdingen plays in Duisburg's current ground, the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena.
The Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena was constructed on the same site where the previous Duisburg stadium, the Wedaustadion, was located. The Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena is a modern pure football venue that offers room for more than 30,000 spectators. View is excellent from all positions. There are two huge video screens over the north and south stand, respectively.
The stadium is fully covered with a cantilevered roof, all stands are two-tiered. The lower tier in the north stand is terraced, the upper tier is seating space. The same goes for the south stand, although the terraced section is much smaller there. A remarkable feature can be found in the upper tier of the south stand, where a Swiss flag is display by colored seats, as an honour to a Duisburg fanclub from Switzerland. The main stand is an all-seater stand withouth any remarkable features, the opposite main stand features the writing 'MSV' in the seats in the upper tier and 'DUSIBURG' in the lower tier.
Uerdingen supporters are located in both the upper and lower tiers on the west stand and in the upper tier on the north stand. Visiting supporters are located exclusively in the south stand's lower tier.
How To Get There...
By Car & Where To Park
If you come by car, the address of the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena is "Margaretenstraße 5-7, 47055 Duisburg".
The parking lots at the stadium are only accessible by special permit on match days, but you should be able to find a parking spot somewhere around the stadium. Try Kalkweg, the road to the west of the stadium, going southward.
By Public Transportation
The stadium is well connected to public transportation. Here are various options on how to reach the stadium. See this map for an overview over the different options.
- S-Bahn S1 (track 5, direction Düsseldorf) to 'DU-Schlenk Bf', 10 minutes walk from there
- U-Bahn U79 (direction Düsseldorf) to 'Grunewald', 10 minutes walk from there
- From main station, bus 934 (direction Großenbaum/Wedau Wolfssee) to 'MSV-Arena'
- From main station, bus 939 (direction Klinikum Duisburg) to 'MSV-Arena'
- From main station, bus 944 (direction Wedau Wolfssee) to 'Sportschule Wedau', followed by about a 7 minute walk
I recommend using public transportation to reach the stadium, however it is less than two miles away from Duisburg main station and thus easily reachable on foot.
Exit the main station to the east (not towards the city centre) and turn right. Walk down Neue Fruchtstraße, with the tracks to your right. At the end of the road, turn left into Koloniestraße. After 650 yards, turn right onto Sternbuschweg. Follow Sternbuschweg for 1,200 yards and turn left after you pass under the railroad tracks onto Kalkweg. Head straight on, passing under more railway tracks, and take the first left onto Kruppstraße, which takes you directly to the stadium.
Tickets are price between 14 € and 26 &euro (home supporters). Visiting supporters pay 14 &euro (terrace) or 26 € (seat).
KFC Uerdingen is playing in the 3. Liga for the first time ever in the 2018/19 season. Average attendance is probably lower in Dusiburg than it would be in the Grotenburg-Stadion.
- Season 2018/19: 4,080 (after matchday 24)
