And as it is written: Then the ... "elders of the people assembled in" Freiburg's city hall together with Mayor Salomon, voted 33 to 10 in favor of new stadium, and then "they schemed": Let us cover our ***es and have a public vote "or there may be a riot among the people". To make a long story short, Freiburg's Municipal Council decided on November 18, 2014, to build a new soccer stadium in the Wolfwinkel (wolf's corner) near Freiburg's local airport. We, the people, had the final say today on February 1, 2015.

Yesterday Freiburg's soccer team played Frankfurt in the Dreisamstadion and won 4 to 1. This was a good omen, for tonight at 1900 hours the dice were cast. The people of Freiburg decided 58% to 42% in favor of the new soccer arena. However, voter turnout was only 45% of the electorate.
