"The world in which we find ourselves today is no longer the same as when we last met at a General Meeting of the Hallenstadion - in May 2019". With these words, Balz Hösly opened his presidential address in the entrance hall of the Hallenstadion.
The events of the last two years would have taken their toll on the Hallenstadion and left their mark. Despite this, the team was able to keep infrastructure operating costs to a minimum. Short-time work, constantly changing imposed protective measures and 67 concert postponements would have tested the flexibility of the staff, management and the Board of Directors of AG Hallenstadion.
