  • Gas
The new home ground was officially opened on 16 July 2016 and is heated by a Hoval gas condensing solution.

Sk Rapid had been at home in Hütteldorf, in the west of Vienna, since 1912. At the site of the former Gerhard Hanappi Stadium, SK Rapid started the construction of the new Allianz Stadium at the beginning of 2015. After only 17 months of construction, the construction company STRABAG handed over the stadium to SK Rapid. This has now been used since the 2016/2017 season.

The facts at a glance

The new stadium belongs to SK Rapid, the property is owned by the City of Vienna. The new home of SK Rapid bears the name of the insurance company Allianz Austria. The cooperation officially began on 1 July 2014 and will initially run until the end of the 2025/26 season.

The total cost of the new building carried out by the general contractor STRABAG is estimated at 53 million euros, of which almost 20 million euros come from the City of Vienna. The remaining amount will be partly raised by the Allianz Group and partly financed by SK Rapid.

View of the playing field

The Allianz Stadium offers space for 24,288 spectators, including 2,470 business seats and 41 boxes for V.I.P. guests as well as 50 seats for wheelchair-bound visitors plus accompaniment. At national matches, the stadium can be expanded to a capacity of 28,345 spectators by means of standing room.

The most striking element of the new building is the tubular main building behind the main grandstand. The UEFA Stadium Category 4 stadium is decorated in Rapids club colours green and white.

Hoval supplies the stadium with heat and hot water

The entire TGA work for the stadium was carried out by the company Hopferwieser & Steinmayr Installations GmbH. The stadium was heated with three Hoval gas condensing boilers, whereby the old UltraGas 1300D boiler system could be taken over from the existing building. This was only a few years old and the operators had very good experiences with the boilers. The system was expanded by an UltraGas 1000 in the summer of 2015.

Thanks to this cascade solution, a total heat output of around 2,300 kW is available. It is interesting that of the 2,300 kW total heat output, 1,134 kW are available for the "extreme operation" of the turf heating alone. Of course, we are particularly excited about this.

The Hoval solution ensures sufficient hygienic hot water for the crew and supplies the building and the lawn with heat. Operators continue to expect low operating costs and efficient operation from the new heating solution.
