The city confirmed the relevant information from the newspapers “Stuttgarter Zeitung” and “Stuttgarter Nachrichten” to the German press agency. The printed material will be discussed by the administrative committee on Wednesday and presented to the local council for a decision on Thursday.

In total, the Stuttgart stadium will host five European Championship games: four preliminary round games and one quarter-final. The first group game between Slovenia and Denmark is scheduled for June 16, and three days later hosts Germany will meet Hungary.

Total increase to 140 million

Without an injection of money, the target date for commissioning of the main stand on March 8 during the VfB Bundesliga home match against Union Berlin is in doubt, writes financial mayor Thomas Fuhrmann (CDU) in a statement that has not yet been made public. Stuttgarter Nachrichten and Stuttgarter Zeitung are present. The delay will have “far-reaching consequences” for the European Championship and VfB, which will then be left without a VIP area because, according to the template, the VIP tent is located in an area reserved for television stations.

The number of workers on stadium construction will again be increased and they will also work at night. Additional costs are borne by the city. The total cost of refurbishment of the stadium now amounts to almost 140 million euros.
