Personal dealings with the players

Vicent Cavin, the new assistant coach of the Swiss national team, spoke about the importance of direct and personal contact with the players. In an interview with #LaMatinaleRTS, he explained that in his job, contact with players is essential because they are "people like any other" and, despite appearances, they do not always have an easy life.

St. Jakob Park

St. Jakob Park is a football stadium located in the city of Basel, in the canton of Basel-City in Switzerland. It is the regular home of FC Basel in the Swiss Super League. The "Joggeli", as it is nicknamed by the locals, was originally built with a seating capacity of 33,433.

The capacity was raised to 42,500 for Euro 2008, which was held in Switzerland and Austria, after which several seats were removed, creating more space between them. The capacity was therefore reduced to 38,512 seats for Swiss Super League matches or 37,500 seats for international matches. The maximum capacity for concerts is 40,000 seats.

The St. Jakob Stadium was inaugurated on 25 April 1954 with a friendly international match between the Swiss and German national teams, it also hosted several important matches, including the 1954 World Cup matches and four European Cup Winners' Cup finals in 1969, 1975, 1979 and 1984.

Numerous concerts were held here, including Pink Floyd who performed here on 26 July 1988 as part of their A Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour and on 6 and 7 August 1994 as part of their The Division Bell Tour. Tina Turner performed here 4 times in 1987, 1990, 1993 and 1996.

Michael Jackson performed in front of 50,000 people during his Bad World Tour on 16 June 1988. Actress Elizabeth Taylor and singer Bob Dylan attended the show. Jackson planned a Dangerous World Tour concert in Basel on 11 September 1992, but the show was cancelled because the singer was ill. Jackson performed his last Swiss concert in Basel on 25 July 1997 in front of more than 48,000 people during his HIStory World Tour.

The St. Jakob Stadium was demolished in 1998 and the current St. Jakob-Park was built in its place.

St. Jakob-Park hosted seven Euro 2008 games and also hosted the final of the 2016 Europa League in which Sevilla beat Liverpool 3-1. The design is the work of the Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron, the same people who worked on the Allianz Arena in Munich.
