Stuttgart showcases an unusual blend of urban characteristics and natural wealth, courtesy its close proximity to the local hilly terrain. The city's most prominent football club happens to be Verein für Bewegungsspiele Stuttgart 1893 e. V., founded on September 9, 1893. The sales of Stuttgart football tickets go up whenever the local club produces stellar performances in the league matches or in any other tournament. And VFB do not let down their supporters often in that respect. The club managed winning five league and three DFB-Pokal titles. The home team's stadium Mercedes-Benz Arena is an impressive venue where most of the football matches in Stuttgart are held. It was built in 1933 by the River Necker and can accommodate 55,000 football fans during an international match. After the remodelling of the stadium in 2008, the local club hosted Arsenal in a friendly game at this famous ground.
