Focus on young talent
Since moving into the St. Jakob Park in 2001, more than 45 players from the youth team have made it into the first-team squad of FC Basel. These include, for example, players who have made the leap to renowned foreign clubs after successful seasons with the FCB, such as Ivan Rakitic, Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka, Yann Sommer and Fabian Frei.
But also a large number of players who were key players in the current FCB team have made their way through the FCB youth section, such as former FC Basel 1893 players Zdravko Kuzmanovic, Philipp Degen, Robin Huser and Breel Embolo.
