St. Jakob Stadium
Template:For Template:Unreferenced Template:Infobox Stadium The St. Jakob Stadium was a football stadium in Basel, Switzerland and the former home of Swiss club FC Basel. It was built in 1954, and as well as serving as a club stadium, it hosted several important matches, including a 1954 FIFA World Cup semi-final and four Cup Winners' Cup finals.
Tickets and posters for a planned Madonna concert on August 31, 1987, were printed, but the event never materialised, because of failed negotiations between Madonna's management and the Swiss concert promoter, Good News. A gig in Nice, France was instead organised for that date.
The St. Jakob-Park has been built in its place. It was nicknamed "Joggeli" by Basel supporters.
1954 World Cup Games
During the 1954 FIFA World Cup, St. Jakob Stadium hosted 4 group stage matches, one quarter-final match, and one semi-final match.
