That's what was once said, however, I haven't heard any talk of it recently. The stadium is closed until August (for both matches and visits), so I guess by summer we should be a lot more informed.

From yesterday's sport show on TV a small piece about Sanya Richards and the Swiss sprinters visiting the construction site of the Letzigrund stadium together with the organiser of the Golden League athletics meeting "Weltklasse in Zurich". You see Sanya Richards performing in the old stadium 9 months ago during the meeting which is the most popular one in the world for many athletes.

Now the completely new stadium is built on the same place, but with the new ground 8m below surface. The opening will be in September with the "Weltklasse in Zurich" meeting and the football game between local rivals Grasshoppers and FC Zurich. So, thanks to the efficient planning & construction the Athletics meeting will not need to move or take a break this year! This was one of the requirements for the construction company.

The stadium will be used for the annual Golden League athletics meeting, rock concerts, public sport associations and also as a training center for the football team FC Zurich (with additional football fields outside of the stadium). For the coming appr. four years, the stadium will be the home ground for both professional football teams Grasshoppers-Club Zurich and FC Zurich (until the new 30'000-seater football stadium will be constructed - most probably on the site of the current one). And, of course, it will be one of the 8 grounds of Euro 2008.

A special feature of the stadium is, that it will be a meeting place for the people living in the area (it's a residential area) with cafes etc. On days without chargeable events, folks can just walk into the stadium directly from the street and hang around.

Here is the TV report (it's in Swiss and German language, but I guess, the pictures speak for themselves):

Looking good, shame there wont be many tickets for the fans but they are suitable for these 2 nations. 2012 will solve the seating capacity problems anyway.

Take it the wooden struts in the Zurich pic are being removed and replaced with concrete ones?

I think they use this method because the stand is being constructed on a (artificial) hill.

What strikes me is that the Austrian stadiums (except for the existing Ernst Happel Stadium) have steel second tiers. To be demolished after the EURO? (I only know this will be the case in Klagenfurt, what about the others?)

I think so. Salzburg might keep it but the other clubs definitely don't need a second tier.

How can they not be complete? The ones for 2012 are nearly done, isn't there a 2 year reserve time, that everything has to be ready 2 years before the championship to have time to fix all the minor details?

There is no such thing as a 2 year reserve time. Portugal for instance constructed 10 new stadiums. Most of them weren't finished until a few months before the start of the tournament.
