Official Review by Jens Struefing, Stadium Journey Special Correspondent
In Augsburg's Curt-Frenzel-Stadion (CFS) the 2015 Deutschland-Cup took place for the first time - the last six years this tournament could be seen in Munich. CFS normally is home of the German DEL-team Augsburger Panther. Participants of the Cup were Germany, Team USA, Switzerland, and Slovakia.
The FANFARE scale is our metric device for rating each stadium experience. It covers the following:
Each area is rated from 0 to 5 stars with 5 being the best. The overall composite score is the "FANFARE Score".
There are concessions all over the arena with a huge variety of food and drink. There are very friendly staff, but you are only able to pay with cash so plan accordingly.
You can get sausages, "fleischkäse" (a kind of meatloaf), French fries, pizza, great burgers as well as pretzels. Normal prizes are between 3-4 euros.
Good German beer is served as well as Coke, water and other sodas.
The typical "Fleischkäse" is a must-have in Augsburg, as well as a German beer.
There are very friendly staff all over the stadium. Fans are able to walk around the whole rink. Watching hockey in Augsburg is fun.
The CFS was open on three sides until renovation, and now it's closed overall. Before renovation, it was pretty cold in the arena, and it was fun to freeze a mug of water to real ice during a game. Now that the arena is closed, the CFS is a nice arena with a huge video-cube. Seats are comfortable, and music and announcements can be heard perfectly through the new speaker system.
For the Deutschland Cup, the German mascot "Urmel" was in Augsburg, giving the chance to take a photo with it. During the game the usual things like Kiss cam or Dance cam were shown on the videocube.
Seating in Augsburg is mostly possible at the main sides of the rink. Behind one goal there is a big stand for the home fans of Augsburg, but only for standing. At the other side of the rink is a small stand for the guest fans and a small seating stand.
Curt-Frenzel-Stadion is located in Augsburg town, nearby a huge parking lot. Walking to the arena takes about five minutes. There are enough possibilities to find a beer before the start of the game, or find something to eat like a Kebab.
The best opportunity for a hotel is to stay at the ibis budget Augsburg City. Walking from the hotel to the arena takes about 10 minutes. Another possibility for lodging is the ibis Augsburg Hauptbahnhof (about one mile away), or the ibis Augsburg Koenigsplatz (about two miles away).
Augsburg is known for great and enthusiastic hockey fans. Many of them were in the stadium during the 2015 Deutschland-Cup.
The tournament took place over three days (Friday-Sunday) with two games each day, and there were about 4,500 spectators every day. In Augsburg there is usually an average of 4,459 spectators per DEL-game during their regular season.
Because of Germany winning the 2015 tournament, the fans were loud, enthusiastic and happy. It was a great atmosphere when Germany was playing. And because of Ben Hanowski, an Augsburg player on Team USA, a big part of the crowd was enthusiastic with the American squad too.
Getting in the stadium is easy, but only if you take the right entrance. Entering at the side, there are a lot of stairs. Moving around the rink also is possible, if you climb some stairs. Taking the main entrance, you won't have any problems, and places for disabled persons are at this entrance.
Getting to the stadium is possible by taking the tramway. But Augsburg is not a very big city - if you are staying in the Hotel ibis Budget you are able to go easily by foot.
There is a huge parking lot near the arena, but sometimes there is a circus or a flea market blocking many of the parking lots. General parking is free.
The best gate is at the main entrance. Security and staff are very friendly. Ticketing is possible in advance by web or at the entrance of CFS.
The 2015 Deutschland-Cup took place between Friday and Sunday. You buy tickets for one day for two games.
It costs 39 euros for two games in the middle of the main seating area with a great view all over the arena. Definitely worth the cost. Eating/drinking costs are reasonable, while parking and a small programme for the whole tournament were free.
Parking and programme for free, no decorative ticket, but a lot of merchandise (pucks, pins, jerseys for all teams). It is a great tournament in Augsburg.
