In February 2023 the time had come: LASK returned to its traditional home in Linz after six years. In the Upper Austrian provincial capital, the Raiffeisen Arena sits enthroned on Froschberg in Linz.
With the construction of the Raiffeisen Arena in the heart of Linz, a new football era had
begun - for Linz, for Upper Austria and for LASK. The stadium not only promotes football in
Upper Austria to a new level, but also sets strong regional investment opportunities for local
businesses, generates sustainable added value, and creates important jobs.
The Raiffeisen Arena meets the international requirements of the ÖFB for international matches and the ÖFB Cup final. It also fully complies with UEFA Category 4, which would allow international matches up to and including a Champions League semi-final. The arena seats 19,080 visitors.
Of course, the Raiffeisen Arena guarantees a modern infrastructure and meets the latest safety standards - a great, carefree stadium experience and cleanliness enjoy top priority.
The LASK fan zone of the Raiffeisen Arena with regional food trucks and a large kiosk in the outdoor area located on the forecourt of the stadium. Fans can get in the mood for the match there before the game starts and afterwards celebrate the game together. The gastronomy on offer on match days is accompanied by activities, DJs or live music - just to give some examples.
The ASK standing grandstand is located directly behind the fan zone. It extends from the edge of the field to under the roof. The capacity of the standing room is almost 4,500 standing places for national games and almost 3,000 seats for international games. Sufficient space for maximum atmosphere.
The ASK standing grandstand at Raiffeisen Arena has a capacity of 4,500 supporters.
A visit to the stadium in the Raiffeisen Arena will be an experience for the whole family - because football is no longer just a man's game.
With the special Family Season Ticket, which includes seats in LASK's family stand, there is an affordable way to visit the Raiffeisen Arena regularly with the whole family. A quick example? For a family of four the matchday price is just seven euros per person. In addition, we are planning a children's club in the area of the LASK family stand. In this 1000 square metre children's area, the youngest fans will be professionally cared for by educators with age-appropriate activities. A healthy and high-quality catering service is also provided.
On a total of three floors, the LASK, BWT Business Club offers a space for over 2,000 guests per home game. A
bright, stylish ambience – paired with design elements – ensures an exclusive football atmosphere. High-quality
catering takes care of refreshments for the visitors. In addition, the BWT Business Club offers a platform for
maintaining regular contacts within an attractive mix of industries.

"Eat like the pros" - The LASK restaurant in the south-eastern part of the Raiffeisen Arena will impress with its
healthy cuisine. It will also be open on non-match days. It will be open to the public and will also be available to
LASK players, and staff. All athletes who train in the adjacent Olympic Centrum can also enjoy the Raiffeisen
Nutrition is also a fixed component of the LASK initiative to encourage Upper Austria's children to exercise more and eat healthily - not only theoretically, but also physically. In the LASK restaurant, children will be given a taste for healthy eating at an early age.
A LASK bakery will be built on the forecourt of the Raiffeisen Arena, which will also be open
on non-match days.
Thanks to BWT as a partner of LASK, only reusable bottles and cups are handed out in the Raiffeisen Arena.
Local water is filtered, mineralized with magnesium and served still or sparkling. This reduces CO2 emissions
from unnecessary transport and ensures less plastic waste, because disposable and plastic bottles are
completely avoided. The arena will be the first arena in Austria to be "free of plastic bottles". This makes a
valuable contribution to the environment.
A mobility concept for the Raiffeisen Arena was developed in coordination with the Raiffeisenlandesbank
Oberösterreich, the mobility partner, the LINZ AG Linien, the city of Linz and the Linz police. Above all, it was
about taking into account the concerns of the residents and the aspects of soft mobility. The focus is also on
improving Linz's traffic flows at LASK home games, making it easier for visitors to travel to and from the home
games, and strengthening Linz's cultural and gastronomic offerings.
