Stade de Suisse Wankdorf, Bern.

Not a fantastic stadium but it will probably have a great atmosphere.

I can't understand why you people all cry against the stadia's size!

Comparison (hope the www.stadiumguide.com data are right):

Euro 2000 | Euro 2004 | Euro 2008
==========================
...51.200.......65.000.......53.000...
...51.100.......52.000.......42.500...
...50.000.......52.000.......32.000...
...36.500.......30.300.......31.900...
...30.000.......30.200.......31.600...
...30.000.......30.000.......31.000...
...29.200.......30.000.......30.000...
...26.600.......30.000.......30.000...
...................30.000...................
...................29.900...................
===========øAVG===========
...38.075.......37.940.......35.250...

They are not much smaller than the stadia before, maybe just a second bigger one is missing, but that's ok, I can live with that

Gelredome had a capacity of almost 30,000 at Euro 2000, not its current 26,600.

There have been talks every now and then about a joint league but I believe there's nothing on the horizon.

Euro 08

Hello together first times sorry for my bad English! I read and had nearly everything of euro 2008 of stage that to only head-vibrate! Those are not clear stadium most beautiful and largest however them are always enough for Switzerland and austria. And if we talk about the tickets it always too few will give. Before in Germany are final more than 200,000 inquire come for tickets. And if we may speak about stadium we to ask oneself whether we wm only in the USA to organize that those to have more big stadium than all different. And sorry those Swiss have with the Wm proven that it füssball inspired are! One should speak after the Em about it which not well wär not more voher! I find those to stadium in Switzerland and austria madly kelin however fine and her finalspeak the standard uefa of the 30,000 spectators and it must 8 stadium be.

Sankt Jacob Park looks nice but otherwise I'd agree this is definately the worst collection of stadia since the european championships expanded to 16 teams.

Thanks a lot. FAR too much information

Klagenfurt definitely is about to get a great stadium...

(Even though they don't deserve it.)

Stadium work 'on track' for EURO
Friday, 19 January 2007
by Mark Chaplin
from Nyon

e-mailPrint

Whether it be stadium construction work, renovation or venue-related planning, preparations at the eight UEFA EURO 2008™ stadiums - Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Salzburg and Vienna in Austria, and Basle, Berne, Geneva and Zurich in Switzerland - are bang on course.

Thorough fine-tuning
All stadium elements are being thoroughly fine-tuned to ensure that, among others, the fans, VIP guests, service providers, broadcasters and security authorities can experience a trouble-free EURO in the two Alpine countries. We asked the UEFA Euro 2008 SA organising company's head of operations, Colin Smith, for his view on the state of preparations in the stadium sector.

uefa.com: How are things progressing on the stadium front at the start of 2007?

Colin Smith: Construction work is on track. Two new stadiums are being built in Klagenfurt and Zurich, development work has taken place in Basle, with one extra tier being added and inaugurated for the recent Switzerland-Brazil friendly, and extra tiers are being constructed in Innsbruck and Salzburg to bring their capacities up to 30,000.

uefa.com: Will the EURO stadium capacities be maintained or reduced after 2008?

Smith: Klagenfurt will reduce to a 12,000-seater stadium after the tournament. There are ongoing discussions in Innsbruck and Salzburg as to the potential interest and need to maintain the larger capacities for future events.

uefa.com: There has been some debate about stadium capacities of 30,000 for a EURO final round. What is your view?

Smith: It is clear that for a UEFA European Championship, the larger the stadium, the more demand we can fulfil, because the demand is there for spectators to come and watch matches. However, the stadium has to be a lasting legacy and has to be usable afterwards. The cities and clubs are in the best position to assess the real capacity that they need post-EURO, to ensure that they have well-functioning stadiums with a suitable capacity, rather than being left with excess capacity, extra costs etc.

uefa.com: What sort of work is going on behind the scenes in an operational sense?

Smith: In order to manage planning, we have set up a structure which enables us to communicate directly with the cities, the police, transport authorities and the stadiums, in the form of the venue management working group. We meet every two to three months at every venue, and that allows us to maintain close co-operation with regards to all areas of planning.

uefa.com: As far as preparations in this sector are concerned, what comparison can be drawn with 2004 in Portugal?

Smith: Our set-up is much further advanced. We originally went out to Portugal two years before the event and had to set up an organising company at the same time. So this time, we've had a longer head-start. We also have groups of people who were involved in Portugal, so we've been able to take on board what they have learned. I think we are also co-ordinating more closely with the authorities this time - they have a clearer view of what we are doing inside the venues.

uefa.com: The stadiums in Switzerland are located in built-up areas. What solutions are being sought?

Smith: We have to be creative with the requirements, which are obviously beyond normal domestic and international matches - with television compounds, for example. Zurich is an example of an urban stadium, so here, we are working with the traffic authorities and police in order to use surrounding streets and areas to help deliver requirements to various target groups and to offer a service to the fans.

uefa.com: What are the next milestones?

Smith: Ensuring that stadiums are finished on time in 2007, and ensuring that we can start hosting matches in stadiums for observation and test purposes. These are areas that we would obviously like to check in an operational sense.
