Two FC Basel matches in three days, with the men's team and then with the women's team

On Thursday evening, I watched the FC Basel men's team play the second leg of their UEFA European Conference League playoff against CSKA Sofia from Bulgaria; the attendance at St. Jakob Park was 18,649. In an exciting match, Basel won 2-0 to make up for their 0-1 loss in Sofia and qualify for the Conference League group phase. This evening, I went to the St. Jakob Track and Field Stadium to see FC Basel women's team play their home opener for this season against the BSC Young Boys. I haven't found an official attendance figure. It was also an exciting match, a 1-1 draw despite Basel's domination of the second half. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 27 August 2022)
