BERN, Switzerland (AP) — The stadium in Switzerland that staged the 1954 World Cup final is getting its original name back.
Swiss champion Young Boys says a new sponsorship deal has restored the historic Wankdorf Stadium name.
Named for the Wankdorf neighborhood of the Swiss capital, the stadium also hosted the 1961 European Cup final. It was rebuilt on the site and rebranded Stade de Suisse ahead of hosting games at the 2008 European Championship.
Young Boys on Tuesday announced the change taking effect next season as part of a five-year deal with biotech firm CSL Behring which renounced stadium naming rights.
