FC Basel to reduce stadium capacity in facelift

Saturday 10th September 2022

FC Basel are to reduce the capacity of their stadium as part of a facelift of St Jakob Park.

The Swiss Super League side have played at the stadium since it was opened in 2001. After 20 years of use, the club has decided to spend up to £60m updating the stadium's shell and interior.

The planned work will include a new eco-friendly shell which will wrap around the stadium and be able to produce its own electricity.

Inside the ground, concourses will be widened and executive boxes refurbished.

The stadium capacity will be reduced by around 2,500 seats to just over 33,000. This should still be fine for the club who haven't averaged over 25,000 since the 2018/2019 season. It would also retain its position as the largest stadium in Switzerland.
