From the publisher:
Das große Buch der deutschen Fußballstadien:
Werner Skrentny's "Big Book of German Football Stadiums" was celebrated almost hymnically when it first appeared eight years ago. It quickly gained the status of a classic that should not be missing in any fan library. It saw three editions and has been completely out of stock for some time - even at the ZVAB. Now finally the book appears new: completely revised and updated. All important stadiums that have been built since the first edition are of course taken into account, such as the Allianz Arena in Munich or the Zentralstadion in Leipzig. The many colored illustrations are also new. What has remained is the claim to honor the approximately 350 stadiums not only in terms of their architecture and sporting importance. How did Peter Eitner judge the Südwestdeutscher Rundfunk? “I've been looking for a book like this for years. It's a great and fun piece of social studies. Above all, the myth that hangs on old stadiums is wonderfully captured. Highest praise. "
Werner Skrentny has lived in Hamburg as a journalist and author since 1978. He is the author of books on the history of the city, sports and football as well as travel guides (including New York). He is also the editor of books on the history of the football league south, south-west and Hamburger SV, for whose museum (permanent exhibition and various special exhibitions) he was responsible for the content. As an author he is involved in the following books about HSV: "Always first class", "With the diamond in my heart" (both together with Jens R. Prüss) and "Places of Passion". He has also published "The big book of German football stadiums" for the Die Werkstatt publishing house.
