History and description

The stadium is located in Basel and has a capacity of over 52,000 people. Joggeli is the largest stadium of Switzerland and construction of it began in 1998 after the old St. Jakob-Stadion that stood in its place had initially been demolished. The stadium is located in Basel and has a capacity of over 52,000 people. That was financed by the Canton of Vaud and the City of Lausanne. The first match to be played at the new stadium was between Basel and Lausanne Sport on March 15, 2001. Six months later, on September 15, 2001, the stadium officially opened its gates. The total construction cost for the stadium was CHF 250 million, which was financed by the Canton of Vaud and the City of Lausanne.

St. Jakob-Park originally had a capacity of 33,200 people, but it was enlarged for the Euro 2008 tournament by adding an extra tier on one of the long sides. With an additional few extra rows of temporary seats, the capacity was increased to a total of 42,500 people. After the tournament, however, the capacity decreased back to under 40,000 people.

During the Euro 2008 championships, three group matches, two quarter-finals, and the semi-final between Germany and Turkey were played at St. Jakob-Park.

In 2016, the St. Jakob-Park hosted the Europa League final between Sevilla and Liverpool (3-1).

The website of Basel, Basel.com, provides tourist information about the city of Basel and its surroundings. The journey planner on BVB.ch provides timetables and fare information for public transportation in Basel. After the game, I walked for about 20 minutes in a straight line to the railway station. The stadium itself is okay; it's modern and nice. Basel is well connected with France and Germany, so you can plan to visit more countries during your trip to Basel.
