Roger Federer Arena now!
The Association ”Roger Federer Arena now!“ is launching a people’s initiative to rename the St. Jakobshalle to Roger Federer Arena – as a tribute to one of the most important world athletes of all time.
The text of the initiative is short and simple:
«The St. Jakobshalle is called Roger-Federer-Arena» (Amendment Sportgesetz § 6a)
The initiative can only be signed by persons eligible to vote in Canton Basel-Stadt. For this reason the initiators are also launching a petition, which can be signed by all persons, regardless of age, place of residence or nationality.
The petition can be signed online: (not yet available)
