Basel lays new turf

The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

Basel, Switzer­land — Af­ter host­ing a World Cup play­off on its rain-soaked pitch, Basel says a new sur­face must be laid be­fore Manch­ester United vis­its in the Cham­pi­ons League next week.

Basel says the work is needed due to “heavy rain­fall and the dam­age sus­tained” dur­ing Switzer­land’s 0-0 draw against North­ern Ire­land on Sun­day. Switzer­land, which plays key home games at St. Jakob-Park, ad­vanced to its fourth straight World Cup.

The Swiss club cham­pion says it will pay the cost of re­plac­ing the turf be­fore a league game this week­end. Basel then hosts United on Nov 22. – AP
