These Are The Scenes At A German Third Division Game This Weekend
Karlsruher SC said goodbye to the Wildpark Stadium this weekend with a huge pyro party fitting of any celebration.
It was the perfect send-off for a stadium that has been standing for over 60 years, with the capacity 30,000 venue being a favourite amongst rival fans.

Today marks the last ever match (as we know it) in the wildpark stadium, home of @KarlsruherSC- Robert Conway (@Rob_WCFC) November 3, 2018
Lucky to have visited twice & is truly one of the most beautiful old stadiums in Germany. Hopefully the new build doesn't take away too much charm.
Will have to visit again when done. pic.twitter.com/W013TRYx3l

The former Bundesliga side have struggled to get back to the big league in recent years, but the fans continue to support the club on a weekly basis.
It goes without saying, the German third division as a whole is a well supported league - just check out some of the scenes below:
