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)
