Zurich’s Voters Say No to New Football Stadium

Zurich’s voters have narrowly turned down the project to build a new football stadium in Zurich. 50.8% of the voters said no to the new stadium on the area of the former Hardturm Stadium.

The community of interests “IG Stadion Zürich” and the football clubs Grasshopper Club Zurich and FC Zurich deeply regret this negative decision – it’s a serious setback for football as a whole in Zurich. At present, it is highly uncertain whether another stadium project can be realized in the foreseeable future.
