The Wörthersee Stadion opened in 2007, to replace the former venue of the same name ahead of the country co-hosting UEFA Euro 2008. Named after the nearby lake, the venue officially opened on the 7th September 2007, hosting an international friendly between Austria and Japan which ended in 0-0 draw.
With a capacity of 32,000 the venue hosted three group matches at UEFA Euro 2008, featuring Croatia, Germany and Poland. Following the tournament, the stadium underwent a slight renovation which reduced capacity to 30,000.
The stadium was the home of the now defunct SK Austria Kärnten between 2007 and 2010 before they declared bankruptcy. The club was replaced by SK Austria Klagenfurt who have been tenants since.
Since 2014, the venue has hosted the Austrian Cup Final as the Ernst-Happel-Stadion never reached full capacity. In 2019, the stadium featured a public art installation with 300-trees occupying the pitch for a month.
Tenants: SK Austria Klagenfurt
Opened: 1960 (Rebuilt 2007)
