Leipzig Kings announce Bruno-Plache-Stadion as new home field for 2022
From the beginning of July, the Leipzig Kings will move to the Bruno-Plache-Stadion in Leipzig-Probstheida, according to the Kings’ press release.
With a maximum capacity of 12,300 fans, the Kings’ new stadium will be a significant upgrade compared to the restricted Alfred-Kunze-Sportpark with a current capacity of just under 5,000 spectators. “With moving to the Bruno-Plache-Stadion, the Kings begin a new era,” Kings general manager Moritz Heisler commented, via the press release. “A stadium with stationary floodlights, roofed seats, and a capacity of 12,300 fans is exactly our definition of a great home field […]”.
The 1. FC Lokomotive Spielbetriebs GmbH general manager Martin Mieth is excited to have the Kings play at the Bruno-Plache-Stadion as well. “We are very happy that the Leipzig Kings will be our guests this summer and that they will be playing four home games at the Bruno-Plache-Stadion”.
According to the Kings press release, the Saxon-based franchise had to change their home field because of noise abatement measures in Leipzig-Leutzsch.
The first home game of the Kings will be played at Paul-Greifzu-Stadion in Dessau-Roßlau on the June 12th against Rhein Fire. From July on, the Kings will host the Stuttgart Surge, the Berlin Thunder, the Raiders Tirol, and the Wroclaw Panthers at their new home field.
