Description

The stadium was designed by the renowned architect, Walter Gropius. The St. Jakob-Stadion was built to be one of the playing venues for the 1954 World Cup. Construction of the stadium started in 1953 and finished just twelve months later. The stadium was designed by the renowned architect, Walter Gropius. The St. Jakob-Stadion officially opened on the 25th of April 1954 with a friendly match between the Swiss and German national teams. The stadium could hold about 51,500 spectators then and would soon get nicknamed "Joggeli?".

At the 1954 World Cup, St. Jakob-Stadion hosted four group matches, one quarter-final, and the semi-final between West Germany and Austria (6-1).

After the World Cup, the stadium was only used for occasional matches by FC Basel or high-profile international matches of FC Basel. However, when their popularity started growing in the 1960s, they permanently moved to the St. Jakob-Stadion.

St. Jakob-Stadion hosted its first Cup Winners' Cup final in 1968 when Slovan Bratislava beat Barcelona 3-2. In only fifteen years, three more would follow: the first in 1974 between Dynamo Kiev and Ferencváros (3-0), the second in 1978 between Barcelona and Fortuna Düsseldorf (4-3), and the third in 1983 between Juventus and FC Porto (2-1).

Over the years, capacity had first increased further to about 60,000, but then decreased again by the 1990s due to safety measures. This resulted in a final capacity of 36,800 places.

By the 1990s, the stadium at St. Jakob-Stadion had significantly aged and the city of Basel decided to explore the possibility of building a new modern arena. This new arena was built in the form of St. Jakob-Park.

Basel had the chance to win their 25th Swiss championship on the last matchday, but they lost to Sion 1-0. The last match at the old ground was played on December 13, 1998 when FC Basel hosted FC Lugano. Soon afterwards, St. Jakob-Stadion got demolished and replaced by the new St. Jakob-Park, which opened in 2001. Basel had the opportunity to win their 25th Swiss championship on the last matchday, but they lost to Sion 1-0.
