The FC Aarau cheers at the ballot box

For the fifth Time, the voting citizens of the city of Aarau dealt with a new stadium for FC Aarau. For the fifth Time since 2005. And for the fourth Time, the people says "Yes". Twice with over 60 percent support of the population at the end of a nasty election campaign for a planning amendment, as well as a 17-million-franc loan for the stadium. The turnout was high 59.5 percent.

Although the initiators also expect that after this new ballot box victory with Objections to the project. The Federal court had, however, already given in earlier Appeals of his blessing, which is why the building permit is expected this time in the form of a deal. By the end of 2020 they will be available until 2023, the stadium and the associated Development comprising a total of four residential towers in the area of goal space the South are to be realized at the Aarau train station.

The FCA has a future

Would have been discarded in the stadium by the people at the ballot box, it would have been the end for top-flight football in the Aargauer capital. This gloomy scenario was drawn from the FC Aarau in the vote fight. A renovation of the Brügglifelds would become too expensive, and a further exception approval for the use of the venerable stadium in the middle of a residential district in the Swiss Football League (SFL) granted only if, by the fall of 2021 with the construction of the new Arena will be started.

Since 1994, the efforts of the provincial clubs, to build a new stadium to run. The first projects, Schafisheim and mid-land Park, foundered on the resistance of the population. The new building is in the goal space South, starting in 2007, projected, was adopted in 2010 by the people, by the Objections always hinders. (as)
