Delays and cancellations are to be expected (archive).
The 600 to 700 fans were brought to Zurich-Altstetten with an evacuation train, said SBB spokesman Jürg Grob at the request of the Keystone-SDA news agency. The fans arrived shortly before the end of the first half, Grob said. The game kicked off at 4:30 p.m.
According to the SBB train traffic information, the restriction with train cancellations and delays is expected to last until 11 p.m. According to Grob, the SBB assume that the trains will then run normally again. At the moment only two of the four tracks on the railway line between Killwangen-Spreitbach and Dietikon are passable.
Not only football fans were affected by the disruption. According to Grob, the IC trains and the TGV between Basel and Zurich as well as the IC5 from Olten to Zurich and the IC8 between Bern and Zurich are canceled. The disruption also had an impact on the S-Bahn.
We advise travelers to consult the online timetable, Grob continues. (SDA)
