Due to the Austria/Switzerland candidature, the decision has been made to expand the seating from 32,000 to 40,000. The stadium will be completed in 2005 and will be the biggest stadium in the country.
Couldn't they find a better name for the stadium? . I know the word is probably very inocuous in German but it doesn't sit well with me from an English language perspective (especially if speaking with a South African accent where "orf" is how they say "off" )
So it will be the biggest but will it be the best? or will St Jakob still have the superior facilities?
Wankdorf is also a bit funny in German....it's a good decision, because the old Wankdorf has been the Swiss stadium with the biggest tradition. I'm quite sure it will at least have similar features as the St. Jakob Park.
