Switzerland May Lose Euro 2008 Soccer Championship

European football’s governing body, Uefa, has told Switzerland and Austria that they may lose the right to stage Euro 2008 if they cannot provide four stadiums each.

Legal wrangles over rebuilding the Hardturm stadium in Zurich have left Switzerland with only three suitable venues in Bern, Basel and Geneva.

Shame on you, Switzerland, and Zurich, especially. So Zurich wants to be this worldly city, welcoming and open, elegant, trendy and full of fun, and then they can't even have an appropriate soccer stadium?

The small group of inhibitors state the protection of the environment as reason why the stadium could not be built.

Wake up, we are not talking about wide green pastures or a biological garden, here: This is Zurich, Switzerland's biggest city, and some say it is the nation's secret capital. But with the reputation comes responsability and the willigness to deal with large crowds.
