Hardturm football stadium - Zürich
Hardturm football stadium

The Hardturm stadion is home to the Grasshoppers club. It's an older stadium that is supposed to be replaced eventually. The original plan was that the new stadium should be finished for the Euro 2008 but there were so many objections by various parties with different interests, so it remains to be seen when there actually will be a new one.

Many years ago I watched here my first and last football match as a young adult.

Update:
The old Hardturm has closed for good in autumn 2007. The grasshoppers are now guests in the new Letzigrund until they have a new home. It's not yet known, when this will be the case. There are voices that think that Zurich should only have one soccer club with the new Hardturm as their home and the Letzigrund should only be for other purposes.
