The original 86,000 capacity stadium was completed in 1954 and has since been rebuilt several times for various major football events. Today it has 49,000 covered seats. During the World Cup 2006 the stadium was named FIFA World Cup Stadium, Hanover.

Through a sponsorship deal, the stadium’s official name is currently HDI-Arena. Between 2002 and 2013 a similar arrangement saw the stadium renamed as the AWD-Arena.
