The Kernberge glow in the evening sun while the glorious FC Carl Zeiss Jena is going to beat “the others”


It ain’t artsy but it perfectly sums up a beautiful day. It has been a while since my last presence in the former “Home of the Kaninchen”, named after the inventor of the football stadium, Ernst Abbe.
The team, the weather, the light and 12.500 people created an awesome atmosphere. Even not finished yet, the new EAS makes watching football absolutely enjoyable. I really like what they did there.


Floodlight experience

Taken after Tuesdays football match between @fccarlzeissjena_official and @1fcm1965 (german 3rd division). The new installed floodlights are illuminating the famous Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld.

I did not really expect a positive outcome of the match but neither did I expect such a result. Anyway, atmosphere was great and the €/goal rate was worth it ?
