Atmosphere – Mood – Emotion: Since 2015, SSV Jahn Regensburg has been playing in a flash new stadium. To make sure that home fans and visitors can get to the games conveniently, more than 2,600 parking spaces were created around the Continental Arena. 115 steel lighting poles from Tecpoles ensure optimum lighting of the parking areas for cars, buses and bicycles.
The difficult path to the new stadium
It took more than 20 long years, but in 2003, the wait was finally over and SSV Jahn Regensburg would be returning to professional football in Germany with its promotion to the 2nd division of the German Bundesliga. Even as early as the 2003/2004 season, discussions about a new stadium began to germinate, because the venerable Jahn Stadium in Prüfeninger Strasse, which had been opened in 1926, no longer met the requirements of a modern football arena.
However, the new stadium would have to wait a little bit longer. Although for a long time things were looking good for the newly promoted team, at the end of the season the club had to join the ranks of the amateurs again. However, the people in charge at the city of Regensburg never let go of the idea for a new stadium and in July 2011 the time was finally ripe: SSV Jahn had established itself in the newly created 3rd division and the new stadium was a done deal.
Lighting poles – unobtrusive and indispensable
A location was quickly found for the new stadium on a piece of ground south of the A3 autobahn. On 30 January 2014, following an intensive planning phase, the ground-breaking ceremony for the stadium project took place. However, the new home of the Regensburg team also needed a considerable amount of new infrastructure around it.
Anyone who doesn't use public transport to get to the game can park at Regensburg University or the nearby University Hospital, or directly at the arena itself. The car parks at the arena are optimally illuminated by products that are as unobtrusive as they are indispensable: steel lighting poles from Neumarkt-based company Tecpoles.
Thanks to lighting poles from Tecpoles the arena car park is perfectly illuminated. This means that fans can find their way around safely and easily when arriving and leaving.
