An expansion to 55, seats would make the stadium one of the ten largest football venues in Germany. Who was to finance such an expansion remained unclear.
German media considered that a possible option was that Red Bull GmbH buy the stadium to make the investments itself, but it was also considered unlikely that the current owner would be prepared to sell the stadium, which had just turned profitable.
It could also be used to put pressure on the current owner of the Red Bull Arena to agree to an expansion. In March , German media reported the club considered building a new stadium on the area north of Leipzig.
It could be modeled after the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen or the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf , with a significantly larger capacity than Red Bull arena, possibly up to 80, seats.
The current owner of Red Bull Arena, Michael Kölmel, commented on plans to build a new stadium in an interview in August He pointed out how a new stadium on the outskirts of Leipzig could be detrimental to fan culture, and said that Red Bull Arena could be expanded to 55, seats, or even more.

Due to the transfer of the arena into ownership of Red Bull, a new stadium would not be pursued. The stadium will expand to a total of 53, seats as of summer , beginning from November , when construction works will start.
In , Red Bull announced its intention to engage long term in Leipzig. In this context the club sought a location for a training center and a youth academy.
Towards the end of the year, the club made concrete plans to invest 30 million euros in a training center comprising six pitches, offices and a youth academy.
The training center was to be located at Cottaweg, partly on the area of the naturally protected riparian forest Leipziger Auwald and the site of the traditional fair Leipziger Kleinmesse.
The plans met objections and concerns from environmental organizations and from the current users of the area, a Leipzig fairground association and the football club BSV Schönau The construction was to be carried out in two phases and began in March Pitch one was also provided with four meter masts producing HD-compatible lightning for optimal television broadcasts.
Locker rooms, sanitary facilities and weight rooms were installed in 60 containers, totaling square meters. The second phase of construction began in January For the second phase, the training center was to be expanded with two pitches, an area for goalkeeping practices and a three-story 13, square meters sports complex, meant to offer amenities for all RB Leipzig teams, from the U8 team to the professional team.
In addition, pitch one was to be provided with a covered grandstand with at least 1, seats, for A- and B-junior matches. The new sports complex was opened in September and taken in use by the professional team and six junior teams, from U14 to the reserve team.
Constructed in the spring of was a covered grandstand with 1, seats, an area for motor skills-training and a parking area. The club has already plans for even further expansions of the training center.

BSV Schönau has a contract to lease the area until The club ceded parts of its grounds to RB Leipzig in For this, the club received compensation.
In total, RB Leipzig spent , euros for the construction of new grounds for BSC Schönau The area currently leased by BSV Schönau is already pledged to RB Leipzig when the lease contract ends in RB Leipzig has 41 official fanclubs as of May The first two to become registered as official fanclubs were L.

RB Leipzig also has a minor ultras scene with groups such as Red Aces and Lecrats. The different fan clubs and supporter groups are organized in the supporter union Fanverband RB Leipzig Fans.
The supporter union was founded in It is an umbrella organization for official fan clubs, unofficial fan clubs and other supporter groups.
Each supporter group in the supporter union is represented by two representatives. The representatives of the supporter groups meet every 4 to 6 weeks.
The supporter union also holds a general meeting once per year. Even fans that are not members of a supporter group are welcome at the general meeting.
The supporter union is represented by five to seven fan representatives, elected every second year. A maximum of five fan representatives are elected by the representatives of the supporter groups, two additional fan representatives are elected by the general assembly.
A core function of the fan representatives is to serve as a direct link to the club. The fan representatives can hold talks with club officials, for example, to communicate requests, suggestions and criticism from the supporter base.
In order to divide the work of the fan representatives, the supporter union has also created several working groups. Present were also club officials, such as general manager Ulrich Wolter.
Several German newspapers have noted the emergence of distinctly nonconformist supporter groups at the Red Bull Arena. In January , Leipziger Internet Zeitung reported on the appearance of ultra group Red Aces.
The group members were said to see themselves as "Rasenballisten" and determined not to leave the supporter base solely to Red Bull GmbH. The group was said to highly value the name "RasenBallsport" and to be committed to give the club an identity beyond that offered by Red Bull GmbH.
In the forefront, the group put the city of Leipzig. Their central idea was described as "Rasenballismus", stressing the Leipzig identity and the importance of impassioned fans.
Lecrats was described as geared towards the anti-commercial values of the ultra culture and as critics of Red Bull GmbH.
IG Rasenballisten and the ultra groups were said to consciously avoid the reductions that apply to official fanclubs and to reject official club merchandise and the commercial name of the stadium.
The group had previously functioned as an interest community for other groups and individuals in the Red Bull Arena. Mitteldeutsche Zeitung reported that the group describes itself as uniting fanatical and critical fans of RB Lepizig.
Members of Rasenballisten said that the group doesn't hesitate to criticize Red Bull GmbH, when found necessary, and stated that the identity of a club can not solely rely on the main sponsor.
The statement can be found on scarves sold by the group, and on a banner inside the stadium. RB Leipzig had previously refused to allow supporter groups such as Rasenballisten to sell their own merchandise at the stadium, but after lengthy negotiations, the club has given permission.
The ultra group Red Aces took position against Legida , the local offshoot of Pegida , at the beginning of In an open letter to the club, the stadium operator, the Mayor of Leipzig and the citizens of Leipzig in January , the group asked for support against a planned demonstration by Legida.
The demonstration was set to begin near the Red Bull Arena, and the group specifically asked for the stadium lights to be switched off at the time of the demonstration.
The stadium operator decided to support the initiative and agreed to switch off the lighting. The club refused to approve the requested banners, according to Red Aces because the club did not want politics in the stadium.
Despite the ban, the group displayed a banner directed towards Legida proclaiming the city of Leipzig to be diverse, cosmopolitan and tolerant. The club refused to approve the requested banner.
During the home match against FC St. Pauli on 23 August , Red Aces defied the supposed ban on anti-racist banners in the stadium through displaying a banner with a clear anti-Nazi message.
RB Leipzig supporters travelled in numbers to the first away match of , against FC St. Pauli on 12 February Nearly 2, RB Leipzig supporters made its way to the Millerntorstadion and displayed a red and white flag tifo at the match start.
The away match against 1. FC Nürnberg on 20 March at the Grundig-Stadion was attended by 2, RB Leipzig supporters, according to club statistics.
The number set a new club record for away supporters, which was broken in the first two Bundesliga seasons.
One year later, more than 9, fans travelled for the last away game of the —18 season in Berlin.
The organization Fanprojekt Leipzig was founded in by initiative of the city of Leipzig and is run by Outlaw gGmbH, full name Outlaw gemeinnützige Gesellschaft für Kinder- und Jugendhilfe mbH.
Outlaw gGmbH is a Münster based non-profit company for child and youth welfare. The basic framework of the Fanprojekt Leipzig was concluded by the City of Leipzig, the Free State of Saxony and the German Football Association DFB , and the organization receives funding from the City of Leipzig and the DFB.
Fanprojekt Leipzig is an organization for young football fans of different clubs in Leipzig, and works as an independent institution towards the different clubs.
The main areas for the organization are promoting a positive supporter culture, violence prevention, help for young supporters in problem situations and establishing communication between all parties involved, such as supporters, clubs, police and law enforcement.
Fanprojekt Leipzig is part of a network of similar Fanprojekts in numerous German cities. The different Fanprojekts are supported by a national coordination office KOS.
Fanprojekt Leipzig runs a number of centers in Leipzig used for purposes such as recreational activities, content projects, painting and creation of minor choreographies, and as meeting places.
For each club, the organization offers a social worker or pedagogue who works exclusively with supporters of that club.
The organization carries out a variety of recreational and educational activities, including sporting activities, creative projects, readings and discussions and educational programs.
The organization has presence during match days, where it is available for personal contact by supporters, police and law enforcement, with the aim to be able to mediate between the parties and have a de-escalating effect.
RB Leipzig entered a cooperation agreement with Fanprojekt Leipzig in The cooperation agreement involves collaboration in eight categories, involving both home and away matches, as well as anti-racism work.
The detailed cooperation agreement was by then a novelty in Germany. In addition, the RB Leipzig formed a stadium ban commission, in which Fanprojekt Leipzig provides advice to the club.

RasenballSport Leipzig e. V is a registered voluntary association. Its executive body is the Vorstand , the management board.
The management board is appointed by the Ehrenrat , the honorary board. It is also subordinated to the Aufsichtsrat , the supervisory board.
The honorary board is elected directly by the club members at the general meeting. Significant organizational changes were made in , following requirements set up by the German Football League DFL.
One of the requirements was to change the composition of organizational bodies. Both the management board and the honorary board had been composed by either employees or agents of Red Bull.
In addition, a supervisory board was added. These functions were now transferred to a newly created supervisory board that can perform these tasks independently.
The club decided to transfer the former members of the honorary board to the newly created supervisory board. The association is responsible for men's junior teams from U8 to U14 and all women's football teams.
Voting membership is severely restricted. According to Ulrich Wolter, the club does not aspire towards the high number of members of other clubs. Wolter has also pointed at other clubs, where Ultras have succeeded in creating structures, and stated that the club absolutely wants to avoid such conditions.
For the establishment of a registered voluntary association, an association is required by German law  to have at least seven members.
Four years after its founding, the club had only 9 members, all employees of Red Bull. This restrictive membership policy met criticism, thus one of the original requirements set up by the DFL in order to obtain a license for the —15 2.
Bundesliga season was to lower the membership fees and open up the association for new members. The club responded to the pressure from the DFL and announced changes to the membership in June The annual fee for this type of membership is between 70 and euros and serves to promote junior football within the club.
In return, a supporting member receives certain privileges such as a meeting with the professional team and a fitness session at the Red Bull Arena.
Supporting members also have the right to attend general meetings, although without voting rights. On 2 December , the general meeting of the association voted unanimously for the founding of a spin-off organization in the form of a GmbH.
The decision was taken at an extraordinary meeting. Present were 14 voting members and 40 supporting members.
As of , Red Bull GmbH is the main shareholder of RasenballSport Leipzig GmbH, holding 99 percent of the shares. The remaining one percent is held by the association.
As of April , the general manager of RasenballSport Leipzig GmbH is Oliver Mintzlaff. RB Leipzig's kits were first provided by German sportswear brand Adidas from the club's founding.
In , the club switched to the American sportswear brand Nike , in an agreement that will be in place until at least Bundesliga teams that were struggling financially during the COVID pandemic.
Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality.
Having finished as runners-up in their debut season in the German top flight, RB Leipzig gained entry to continental football for the first time, specifically the —18 UEFA Champions League.
RB Leipzig is one of the first clubs in history to qualify for the Champions League so soon eight years after its creation  for which Red Bull Salzburg had also qualified as Austrian champions ; this raised the issue of a possible conflict of interest between the clubs due to the level of influence exerted by Red Bull over both teams and the close sporting relationship between them in various aspects.
In the first season following that ruling, both reached the quarter-finals of the —18 UEFA Europa League but did not play each other, with RB Leipzig eliminated by Olympique de Marseille who then also knocked out Salzburg in the semi-finals.
However, in the next edition of the same competition, RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg were drawn together in Group B to meet competitively for the first time.
The establishment of RB Leipzig has caused much controversy in Germany.
