Steigerwaldstadion is a multi-purpose stadium in Erfurt, Germany. The stadium is able to hold 18,611 people and was built in 1931. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt.

From 1948 to 1991 (the time of the German Democratic Republic), Steigerwaldstadion was known as the Georgij-Dimitroff-Stadion, after Bulgarian communist leader Georgi Dimitrov (1882–1949).[1]
