Two years ago Rapid Vienna football club, the record-holding Austrian Bundesliga champion, announced that it was having its stadium rebuilt. The club had set a budget of around 53 million euros to construct Austria’s most modern stadium. Rapid Vienna’s new home was built on the same site as the old Gerhard Hanappi Stadium, with a capacity of 28,600 (seated and standing). Since the club placed great value on high-quality products, they chose Hager Group to provide the electrical installations. Hager Group made a significant contribution to the new Allianz Stadium, equipping it with the latest technology – from casings, channels and controls, to KNX building automation systems. In addition, Hager Austria created a special Rapid Vienna light switch for fans, which is being used in the new stadium and can also be purchased at the fan shop.
The stadium opened officially on 16th July 2016, with a friendly against Chelsea, which Rapid won 2-0.
