History and description

The new stadium has a capacity of 50,000 people and is used mostly for football matches. original sentence: Plans for renovating the old Letzigrund stadium had long been in existence, but when a proposed 30,000-stadium at Hardturm got delayed and Zürich needed a stadium for the Euro 2008 championships, these plans suddenly got sped up.

On the 30th of August 2007, the Letzigrund new stadium officially opened with the Weltklasse Zürch athletics championships.

A few weeks later, on September 23, the first football match was played at the stadium with the derby between FCZ and Grasshopper.

UEFA had considered expanding the capacity to over 50,000 but decided against it after consulting with the Swiss Football Association. At the Euro 2008 Championships, three group matches were played at Letzigrund. The tournament's capacity was temporarily increased to just over 30,000 seats, but UEFA later decided against expanding the venue's capacity to over 50,000 seats after consulting with the Swiss Football Association.

FC Zürich's home stadium, Letzigrund, had been the old home of FC Zürich since its inception, but Grasshopper had always played its matches at Stadion Hardturm.

However, in 2007 Hardturm was closed in anticipation of the construction of a new stadium, and Grasshopper temporarily moved to Letzigrund. In spite of various projects failing to come through though, the city is currently working on the latest project which would include a new stadium, the Credit Suisse Arena, with a capacity of 18,000 seats.

Apart from hosting football matches, Letzigrund is extensively used for athletics events, culminating in the annual Welklasse Zürich. This event is arguably the world's most important one-day athletics event.
