Stadium easy to get to and from with regular efficient trams. Stadium is a bit lego-ish but serves it's purpose. Friendly locals. View from away section not the best as caged in both sides but if you win who cares?

A great open stadium with good views of the pitch. Plenty of outlets and trams right up to the gates. The concourse could be a bit wider and more toilets wouldn’t go amiss. Security was fairly tight, but that’s to be expected for such a...More

Attended the Switzerland/Northern Ireland world cup match. It's a large stadium that holds 36000 and can create a good atmosphere. There was a small cabin selling beer and snacks.

Security is zero, hooligans manage to enter with rockets. Reserved seats are not respected. We asked the cashier to give us tickets where it is safe to sit with children and the guy gave us ones right in the middle of the fighters, very funny....More

Please specify how you want to stay as there are several options from b&b to 5 starhotels. The city is very close by and easily reachable by tram or short taxi ride.
