Stuttgart's MHP Arena wows in 1000th Bundesliga game

Stuttgart's historic ground became the first stadium to host 1000 Bundesliga matches when Heidenheim visited, with both teams aptly producing a memorable contest.

The stadium has operated since the 1930s and has been a venue of top-flight encounters since the Bundesliga's founding in 1963.

Countless memorable moments have been enjoyed over the years at the home of the five-time German champions and there were more thrills and spills on the occasion of 1,000th game, a mesmerising 3-3 draw between the hosts and visitors Heidenheim.

Indeed, VfB's current campaign, which sees the Swabians challenging for a top-four finish, is certainly up there with the best of them. 

Watch: Stuttgart & Heidenheim put on a show in signature fixture 

While VfB Stuttgart have not themselves contested as many as 1,000 Bundesliga matches, the MHP Arena has also been used by Stuttgarter Kickers - who were in the top flight in 1988/89 and 1991/92.
