From a Financial Times article on preparations for Euro 2008 (Emphasis added.):

Geneva, Basel and Bern had new arenas, requiring little extra work. The latter two are what he calls “new generation” stadiums, in that they include shopping centres and other non-traditional amenities. Basel even incorporates an old people’s home, with residents looking directly on to the match.

That’s the way to treat your elders!
