Euro 2008 Stadium Guide

A general view of the St Jakob Park stadium in Basel. The city has emerged as Switzerland's premier football venue since the stadium was rebuilt in 2001. The multifunctional arena, which achieved UEFA four-star status in May 2002, will stage all of the co-hosts' group football matches at the UEFA Euro 2008 as well as three knockout ties. The stadium has an ultra-modern infrastructure (including solar installation on the roof of the stand). Somewhat uniquely, the stadium complex also has 107 flats for senior citizens spread over six floors. Credit: Fabrice Coffrini, Getty Images

Work on the new Leztigrund was completed in an exceptionally quick time and the stadium opened its doors on 30 August 2007 just one year after the demolition of the old arena on the site. The new stadium cost €66.5m, with a further €3.5m being spent on temporarily increasing the seated capacity to 30,000 for Euro 2008. Credit: Mladen Antonov, Getty Images
