Gazi-Stadion auf der Waldau, Stuttgarter Kickers

Tower and main stand
Waldau-Stadion in Stuttgart is one of only two football grounds (Viktoria Zizkovs stadium in Prague beeing the other one) coming to my mind that are located at the foot of a TV tower. Home team Stuttgarter Kickers, who had two short stints in the top flight in the late 80s and early 90s, are currently playing in the Regionalliga South (level 4). Despite bad success in recent years "Stukis" still attract a decent following.

Kickers use the ground for their home games since its inauguration in 1905, thereby being the German club that plays for the longest time in the same stadium. Nowadays the ground holds 11,410 people (1,068 seated) effectively and it's quite hard to imagine, that it hosted Bundesliga football less than 20 years ago. However, if things ain't working well on the pitch once again, there's still the impressive tower to watch.
