Ok, thanks for the answer. It is not a professional equipment, though definitely bigger than a small compact.
I will bring it then and we'll see...
According to the stadium rules:
http://www.baselunited.ch/download/S..._Juli_2011.pdf

Professional cameras and video cameras are not allowed:

- Videokameras und Profi-Photoausrüstungen;
So a point a shoot as above would be ok (I have had no issue in the past with mine), but I *personally*would not risk taking my DSLR (and never have risked it). It would all depend on the person checking you on the door and what sort of mood they are in tonight

Re: FC Basel - St Jakob Park - recommended seating

That sounds bad.

I really don't know what the criteria of a professional camera would be in this case. I have a basic travel zoom, from this perspective the performance is something similar to a good quality bridge/compact camera, but of course the final picture quality is not even comparable...

I understand they don't want to see people sitting in the crowd with half meter long super-telezooms, that's for the press around the field.
But a basic dslr with kit lenses, it is really not professional at all, though a good photographer can make really good pics with it.

Anyway, thank you all for the answers!

One more thing: what happens if I'm refused to bring it in? Do they offer a safe place I can leave it or do I need to find that place by myself?
I'm still thinking about giving a try, in worst case I will need to leave it in the car and be satisfied with my compact camera.

Re: FC Basel - St Jakob Park - recommended seating

I took my "baby" SLR with a small (but wide) lens and explained it wasn't a pro camera. They told me it couldn't come in and I had to find somewhere to store it myself, so it went back to the car.

This was at bern, not Basel, but..they are the same division so I would expect the same standards

Interesting at FC Lausanne I never had a problem

What kind of match was that? Who played, and when was it?

Re: FC Basel - St Jakob Park - recommended seating

Reviving an old thread for some tips from those in the know

We're planning a trip to Basel to see Suisse vs Slovenia in September and was curious about the trains and ticket packages...Can you buy a combo train & ticket for the match and if so, you get the train into the main Basel station and then take #14 tram to St. Jakob Park?

Just trying to work out the logistics of the train back to Nyon area...Any tips or advice, very appreciated!

Re: FC Basel - St Jakob Park - recommended seating

You probably could get a train & tram combo but if you're staying in a hotel in Basel, you'll receive a ticket for all public transport in the city. The 14 doesn't go directly from the Bhf to St Jakob Park. You'll need to take another tram one stop ( 8, 11, 10) to Aeschenplatz and from there take the no 14.

We went to see Switzerland v England last year and I think the ticket includes transport to and from the stadium (I have a GA so it didn't really affect me). Getting back was dead easy, they laid on special trains from Basel SBB to all over Switzerland; we hopped on the Geneva-bound train and got off in Fribourg.

Re: FC Basel - St Jakob Park - recommended seating

i know it's an old post but it's related to my question

i bought a ticket to the europa league final at st jakob park through UEFA ballot. my ticket is category 1 section G5, which is the third tier.

is it possible that G5 is not a category A ticket? seems like very high in the stand and with restricted view(Concrete pillars up there?)

Re: FC Basel - St Jakob Park - recommended seating

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to dinner and game (FC Thun v Basel) in the hospitality lounge.
My first visit to St Jakob and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
