The Karl-Liebknecht-Stadion is a football stadium in Potsdam-Babelsberg, Germany. It is the home stadium of 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and SV Babelsberg 03. The stadium has a capacity of 10,499 for 9,027 standing and 1,472 seated guests.

History[edit]

The stadium was opened on 10 July 1976 with a football match between BSG Motor Babelsberg and the Olympic team of the German Democratic Republic. The original capacity of 15,000 was reached only once as the East Germany national football team faced Malta. On 9 July 2001, the SV Babelsberg 03 had its highest attendance in their club history when 14,700 spectators witnessed Babelsberg's win over Fortuna Düsseldorf.

The last renovation was held in 2002, and the stadium now has its current capacity. About one year later, the Women's Bundesliga match between 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and 1. FFC Frankfurt was seen by 7,900 people. This was the women's Bundesliga match with the highest ever attendance. Turbine's all-time attendance record was 8,677 people who saw the UEFA Women's Cup final second leg against Djurgårdens IF Dam.
