Ernst Happel Stadion lies in the Leopoldstadt district of Vienna,Austria.It was constructed between 1929 and 1931 by a design from a German.Named after an Austrian player and coach,Ernst Happel following his death in 1922.
It is the largest football stadium in Austria with a seating capacity of nearly 53,000.Used only for UEFA Champions League finals and UEFA Cup and also for major domestic finals.It is rated as 5 star stadium as per UEFA's listing which puts it amongst the elite stadiums like Nou Camp and Old Trafford.The record for attendance is for a national game against USSR in 1960 with 92,706 fans.
Notable games include,1995 Champions League final and 1990 European Championship(now Champions League)final.

In Euro 2008,it has so far staged 6 games(3 group games,2 quarter finals and 1 semi final).Attendance so far has been 3,05,140 and there have been only 9 goals scored,along with the very boring Spain vs Italy "clash".

Hope there are goals scored in Vienna tomorrow.
