Stade de Genève (Geneva)

The Stade de Genève has been the home of Servette FC since it opened in 2003. The stadium has a capacity of just over 30,000 and was officially opened on the 16th March 2003 with a match between Servette and Young Boys finishing in a 1-1 draw.

Just a couple of weeks later, the stadium had it’s first taste of international football as Switzerland lost 2-1 to Italy in a friendly. Switzerland have since played a number of international matches at Stade de Genève, whilst the ground has frequently acted as a neutral venue for international friendlies. Memorable matches include England defeating Argentina 3-2 in 2005, Brazil beating New Zealand 4-0 in 2006 and Argentina defeating Portugal 2-1 in 2011.

The stadium was one of the host venues of UEFA Euro 2008 and hosted three group matches of Group A. Portugal defeated Turkey 2-0, Portugal then defeated Czech Republic 3-1 several days later before Turkey beat Czech Republic 3-2.

The Final of the 2017 Swiss Cup was hosted at the stadium, with Basel defeating Sion 3-0. Rugby Union was also played there in 2006, with French side Bourgoin playing Munster in a Heineken Cup match. An outdoor Ice Hockey was played at the Stade de Genève in 2014, with the National League’s Winter Classic played between Genève-Servette HC and Lausanne HC.
