Named after the father of organised sport in Germany, the Jahn-Sportpark is an ugly, 20,000 seat stadium which mainly seems used as a back up plan. Whilst the fans were rebuilding the Alten Försterei, 1.FC Union called it home for a season. Now it is the turn of Türkiyemspor to play there while they remain in exile without a home.
It is much unloved, principally due to it's links to the GDR regime and their sponsored team, BFC Dynamo Berlin, but also because behind the running track the seated views are mostly average at best.
However, Dynamo played historic games here against the likes of Nottingham Forest in the European cup along with several GDR international fixtures taking place, and it is difficult to imagine the skyline of Prenzlauerberg without it being dominated by it's beautifully characteristic floodlights.
