If you like football (soccer or fútbol, in spanish) and you are lucky to be in Basel when there's a football match, could be grate to go to the stadium. All well organized and you can watch the game very close to the field

It‘s a nice and huge soccer stadium with a shopping centre. I did not watch a soccer game there - just shopping.

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?

Very poor for away fans. Seats missing or numbered incorrectly. Views from the first 6 rows are obstructed by fencing. Searching at the turnstiles was conducted by stewards who we watched receive their training from the outside. One of the worst away venues I have...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.
