Bruno-Plache-Stadion is a multi-use stadium in Leipzig, Germany. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Lokomotive Leipzig. Fans only call it "das Bruno" (the Bruno). The stadium has a capacity of 15,600 people, but it is only accred for 7,000 people at the moment.[1]

It was built in 1922. When it was opened, it was the largest stadium owned by a club in Germany, with a proposed capacity of over 40,000 people. [2] After the Second World War, the stadium was home to SC Rotation Leipzig, until 1990. In 1992, the German Football Association prohibited games to be held for the 2. Fußball-Bundesliga due to security requirements not being met. Since 2004, football matches are being held again at the stadium, which is now the home ground of 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig. The city of Leipzig has full ownership of the stadium.

On June 13, 1999 Bruce Springsteen played a concert at the venue during his Reunion Tour. [3]
