The city council already gave its approval in december 2011. But it still took several months before the fire safety issues were clarified. Then all that was missing was a floor covering and the chairs. At the end of january, the first staff meeting of HUK-coburg was held in the arena.
HUK employs just under 5,000 people in coburg. In the past, employees were invited from bahnhofsplatz to the congress center, from where the staff meeting was transmitted to the canteen at the willi-hussong-strabe site. There have also been two staff meetings for the various sites, recalls HUK press spokesman alois schnitzer.

Eberhard frobel, head of the city’s sports department, is also pleased with the successful premiere. "We had over 6000 people in the hall within four days", he says: first the company meeting of HUK-coburg, then the second league match of VSG coburg in volleyball with about 1000 spectators and on sunday the home match of the handball third league team HSC coburg with more than 2000 spectators.

This also poses organizational challenges for the head of the sports office. He has already formed a janitor pool, he tells. Frobel is responsible for the occupancy of the coburg sports halls outside of school sports as well as for the HUK-coburg-arena. The arena is subject to different rules than the other halls: on the one hand, no school sports take place there, and on the other hand, it is much more expensive to rent because the arena is classified as a "business of a commercial nature" is led.
Special conditions have been agreed for the one-week world championship in indoor model flying, he says. The very next weekend, the arena will once again serve as the venue for a german championship: that’s when the fistballers will measure their skills in coburg.
