The city of Freising and football officials are discussing the space problem: a new large field for everyone is to come

The city of Freising invited the officials of the football clubs to a round table.

According to those responsible, the main topic was the urgently needed new large field for everyone.

Freising – At the invitation of the city association for sports and the sports office, those responsible for the Freising football clubs met for a round table.

The topic: the planning and construction of a new large field.

The two most important results of the exchange of ideas: Another large field that can be used by all clubs is absolutely necessary.

In order to remedy the situation quickly, the clubs would be happy if everyone could install another floodlight system with the support of the city.

In the long run, two large fields are missing

With the exception of Vatanspor Freising, all clubs from the cathedral city – i.e. SEF, SC Freising, SV Vötting, SV Pulling, BC Attaching and SG Eichenfeld – came to the roundtable with several people in charge.

Sebastian Wanzke, Chairman of the City Association for Sports, thanked for the interest and was pleased that, in addition to the head of the sports department, Karl-Heinz Wimmer, planning officer Hans Hölzl and sports officer Jürgen Mieskes also took part in this important meeting.

"It's about clearing up a lot of rumors and bringing everyone up to date on the planning of a new large field," said Wanzke.

Mieskes added: "It is our turn at the moment to find the right location." As a reminder: the elaborately designed sports development plan for 2019 stated that two and a half large fields would be missing in the city area in the long term,

(By the way: everything from the region is now also available in our regular Freising newsletter.)

The city administration was therefore looking for possible locations, informed Wimmer.

Three to four locations have now been identified as possibly suitable.

"Everyone has advantages and disadvantages," emphasized the head of the sports department.

And further: "None of the land in question is owned by the city of Freising." A new football field will under no circumstances be built exclusively for one of the clubs, but must be available to everyone, according to Wimmer.

This met with approval from club officials.

They would be satisfied with a training ground – preferably an artificial turf.

In order to enter the concrete planning phase, the sports office will send out a questionnaire to the clubs in the next few days, in which they should enter their needs, their ideas and their wishes for a new large pitch.

On this basis, the sports department then wants to clarify which location is suitable and make proposals to politicians.

"Then Hans Hölz ​​and I have to convince our other 38 city council colleagues that Freising needs a new large field," said sports officer Mieskes.

Planning consultant Hölzl did not give the football clubs too much hope that construction could be expected any time soon.

Hölz probably only expects concrete planning in five years.

More floodlights as a short-term solution?

The biggest hurdle at the moment, however, is the financial situation of the city of Freising.

In this context, however, the sports officer was optimistic: "The problem will be solved.

The financial situation of the city will certainly improve again.” Actually, they need an improvement immediately because the capacities of the clubs are exhausted, said those responsible unanimously.

"We are on the verge of no longer being able to take in all the children who want to play football with us," pointed out Markus Schappert, chairman of SC Vötting.

At the round table, the club representatives therefore came up with the idea of ​​a short-term solution: one of the main problems is that there are no more floodlights to be able to use all available football pitches in the evening.

The footballers clearly rejected the idea of ​​starting training in the early afternoon.

The children are either still at school or in the after-school care center in the afternoon.

Above all, the coaches didn't have the time.

The football officials are convinced that more floodlights could be a quick help.

The sticking point: These cost a lot of money, and the clubs are currently lacking that.

The club representatives could imagine that either the city would set up such floodlight systems or support the clubs with appropriate grants.

Sports officer Mieskes drew the following conclusion:
