The last competitive football match played in the stadium was a Bundesliga fixture between Schalke and SpVgg Unterhaching on May 19, 2001. The match was attended by approximately 65,000 people. At the end of the match, after a difficult win against SpVgg Unterhaching (5-3), and thanks to a last minute goal scored by Hamburg SV against Bayern Munich (1-0), the crowd celebrated Schalke 04's first Bundesliga title. But Patrik Andersson equalized in the additional time for Bayern (90+4), who retained the title and instantly killed the joy of the fans celebrating in Parkstadion.
The stadium is now partly demolished and the Jumbotron that was placed atop of the northern stand was donated to Erzgebirgsstadion in Aue, where it was installed during the renovations of the stadium in 2004.
