The BENTELER ARENA is the venue for SC Paderborn 07 home matches as well as for other sporting and cultural events.

The entire stand structure is made of precast reinforced concrete elements from the BREMER precast plant. Around 1,200 precast elements were fabricated according to special designs and structural specifications.

In the western part of the stadium is a three-storey building that houses the SC Paderborn 07 club offices, the team rooms and the catering and other facilities. The pitch is designed to the latest Bundesliga standards, with pitch heating, a sprinkler system and rolled turf. The architectural and detail plans as well as all engineering services were provided by BREMER.
