Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

The stadium originally included an athletics track, but that was partially removed in 2002 when the pitch was sunk by 2.1 metres and the stands at the straights were lengthened to the new pitch. With this the capacity rose with about 8.000 places.  In 2004 four office towers were built behind the north stand. These towers offer a restaurant and offices for the club and local companies.
Starting in 2008 the stadium was completely rebuilt. The facade was coated with photovoltaic panels and a new roof was built on top of the old roof supporting structure (the old roof itself was torn down). Both ends (east and west) were torn down and rebuilt parallel to the endline of the pitch, removing what was left of the old athletics track.
