St Jakob Park - Fussball Club Basel 1893
St Jakob Park Football Stadium Basel is the home ground of FC Basel. St. Jakob Park, designed by Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron is awarded four stars by UEFA. The new stadium replaced the old St. Jakob-Stadion. The duo of architects had already gained worldwide reputation before, for example with the construction of the Tate Modern in London. The positive resonance to the stadium project was certainly a factor in Herzog & de Meuron receiving commissions to design the Allianz-Arena in Munich and the new Olympic stadium in Beijing.
St. Jakob-Park is a multifunctional sport arena and the largest stadium in Switerland. It can seat 38,512 people during Swiss competition and 37,500 spectators for international matches. The maximum capacity for concerts is 60,000.
The complex include also a gym, a retirement home with over 100 apartments, a shopping mall with 33 businesses, 680 indoor and just nearly 1,500 outdoor parking places, ten vip-lounges with a view on the pitch, a bistro and a sports-bar. The sports centre caters to the widest variety of needs.
The city of Basel and the city of Zürich have a long-standing rivalry. Therefore, FC Basel's most traditional and fiercest rivals are Grasshopper-Club Zürich and FC Zürich. Other popular teams in Switzerland are Servette FC of Genève or Geneva and BSC Young Boys, based in Bern.
