FC Carl Zeiss Jena - Centenary Postcard
Check out them floodlights. Beautiful.
Carl Zeiss Jena three times winners of the DDR-Oberliga and 1981 European Cup Winners Cup (ECWC) runners-up are currently plying their trade in the fourth level of German football with an average attendance a touch over 3500. Back in 1962 the record attendance at the Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld was set when, despite the official capacity being just 16000, approximately 27500 squeezed in to watch a ECWC semi-final against Atletico Madrid.
