Why the hell aren`t you informed well about the situation and wrote so much stupid things inside the forum? In fact for you unknowing guy: Anno 2002 when was the bid for the Euro2008, Scotland/Ireland had a to weak application for this event, Spain and Italy didn`t stand as a candidate. Therefore objectively, Austria and Switzerland was the best application, in fact. Small and unsensational maybe, but most solid.

I quite like the Ernst Happel stadium. Looks like a traditional stadium. I'm not a big fan of all these flash new plain stadia.

They don't need large stadiums in Austria and Switzerland. Take a look at their league attendances:

Attendances Switzerland

Attendances Austria - choose on left side!

They should join their leagues to get some more quality and higher attendances.

Compare the numbers to England or Germany:

England Attendances - choose on left side!

Germany Attendances

With larger stadiums in the alpes many would only be filled 30 to 50 %.

@ davidkunz/VIE: Can you please edit your post and make it smaller? Just using up space with nothing in it is somewhat useless.

Aside from that: I think Austria / Switzerland was a good decision. Like the World Cup in Germany this means that Euro 2008 is in the heart of Europe and can be reached easily from many countries. I'm sure it'll be a good tournament.

Austria was by far the best team of the twenties. Once people used to refer to Brazilian footballers as "Southamerican Austrians". Austria finished in third position in 1954 and I suppose some of you might recall names like Happel, Krankl, Prohaska, Schachner or, more recently, Herzog, Polster, Konsel, Kühbauer or Manninger. Three teams reached four EC finals during the eighties and nineties. I'd call that pretty good for a country of Austria's size. We are just unlucky with the low standard we have these days and the amount of Non-Austrians in our domestic leagues who take the places of young Austrian players who actually might develop into something big. Which was recently displayed in the U19 EC in Poland with Austria reaching the semifinals. Germany, Italy, France or didn't even qualify. Who knows? The future might be just as bright for Austrian football as the past and the Euro is an ideal platform for that.
Keep those names in mind: Hoffer, Kavlak, Kuru.

Lets hope the investment on new stadia is notspoilt by white eleephants post tournament - as league attendances would suggest.

But a successful tournament could trigger or boost the domestc football in apositive way.
Like anything, its speculating to accumulate.

Sorry, but these stadiums are crap, the stadiums of Euro in Portugal 2004, were much better but for countries as the Switzerland and Austria are good stadiums!

Looking good, if the stadium would have three tiers all around it would look fantastic although it would be way too big for FC Basel (judging by its attendances - 21,806 on average last season - they don't really need this expansion anyway).

Too bad about those pillars though. You would think that they can build roofcontructions without pillars these days but many stadiums that get renovated or expanded are still stuck with them (Berlin, Heerenveen).

Yeah it would be great if you would have 3 tiers going all around it.
I think the stadium looks great so far.
Just a bit of a shame that they had to built in so many pillars.

FC Basel 1893

from http://www.rotblau.ch/

national league
Average spectators season 2002/2003: 26531
Average spectators season 2003/2004: 27886
Average spectators season 2004/2005: 24928

champions league
Average spectators season 2002/2003: 29500

There are about 10`000 to 20`000 core fans in Basel, who support his club in every situation, if they play good or also bad. But there exists also a lot of people (which are called by us: "Mode Fans" = fashion fans) who are interested in FC Basel, when they are succesfull, win a lot of times and if they play in the champions league like 2002/2003, summary more than 30`000 peoples. I think for some of this games they could sold more than 60`000 cards or so. In former times in the old St. Jakob stadium there were also games with 42`000 spectators.
You are right, for the moment, the stadium is a little bit to great designed, but if they are succesfull, sometimes in the year the stadium could be sold out.
Also the main reason of the stadium expansion was the Euro 2008 and for games of the swiss national team.
