The Stadium Letzigrund was originally built in 1925 by Zurich Football Club, but was later bought by the City of Zurich and underwent a major transformation.
In 2005 refurbishment began to revive this as one of the grandest stadiums in Europe, and in 2007 it officially opened. It has already played host to some of the most iconic football games, recently in 2008 with the UEFA Euro Championship matches between France and Italy. The stadium is also home to the Swiss Super League Zurich Football Club and the Grasshoppers Club Zurich, which play every week – a perfect event for sports fanatics while in the city. More than just a sports venue, some of the biggest musical acts on the planet perform here, including U2 and Jon Bon Jovi, attracting up to 50,000 spectators during open air concerts. As well as private boxes being available during major events, elite clientele can rent the stadium as a convention center or even for birthday parties, dinners and exhibitions. Private tours as well as receptions with cocktails can be arranged upon request, while the stadium has its own caterers with a high level chef de cuisine and professional staff.
