The AFG Arena is a multi-use stadium in St. Gallen, Switzerland, completed in 2008. It is used mostly for football matches and hosts the home matches of FC St. Gallen of the Swiss Super League. It replaces the Espenmoos stadium.
The stadium has a capacity of 20,000 people. The name comes from the sponsor, the Arbonia-Forster-Gruppe AFG.
When it was completed, FC St. Gallen was just relegated to the Challenge League. The first match in the new stadium was played on May 30, 2009 when Switzerland won against Liechtenstein 3:0 (18,000 spectators). The official inauguration was held on July 5, 2008.
The AFG arena is used as well for international games between national football teams, such as Brazil or Spain.
