A Fact

After World War II attempts to rebuild local teams failed until members of eight pre-war clubs came together to form TuS Ahlen in 1948. The new side went on to many decades of routine play in the local upper leagues. In 1991 they were faced with a financial crisis and demotion to lower level play. A local benefactor, Helmut Spikker, helped bail the team out through the support provided by his firm, cosmetics manufacturer LR International.

A Fact

Since April demolishing works of the very old North Stand are under way to make way for a modern mostly-roofed stand to be built at the site. The club had planned build a entirely roofed stand, however there has been controversy with a local resident whose property is situated very closely to the ground. As a result about one third of the construction will be significantly lower than the rest and the overall capacity will decrease to 16,250, but seating capacity will rise to 5,728. From Wikipedia
