Sportpark Ronhof | Thomas Sommer[2] is an association football stadium in the district of Ronhof in Fürth, Bavaria, Germany, and the home ground of 2. Bundesliga team SpVgg Greuther Fürth.[3]

The stadium was originally opened on 11 September 1910 under the name Sportplatz am Ronhofer Weg gegenüber dem Zentral-Friedhof[3] (English: Sports ground on Ronhof Lane opposite the central cemetery). It was expanded several times (max. 28,000 capacity) but later reduced to 15,500 and today holds a capacity crowd of 15,606.[3] It was expanded following Fürth's promotion to the Bundesliga. It remained the Bundesliga's smallest stadium, though.
