Werder protects itself from thunderstorms

Werder is breaking new ground: In order to be able to guarantee safe play and training, the TUBE thunderstorm early warning system was set up on pitch 11 on Thursday.

A novelty at Werder's training ground "Platz 11":

Since Thursday, the TUBE, a six-metre high construction by the company Coptr, has been watching over the training ground. Werder announced this on the club's website. This is a warning system that is supposed to detect thunderstorms at an early stage.

If a thunderstorm front is approaching, the Tube recognises this on the basis of live weather data.

The result: a visual and acoustic alarm that is supposed to warn players, fans and officials in time before the storm arrives. The system works permanently and fully automatically to provide additional protection on Werder's training pitches.
