getting to basel on match days??

My friends and i plan to travel into Basel to watch a few games during euro 2008. We will be based near Fribourg in Switzerland.

I have a few questions_

1) what is the best way to travel to Basel from Fribourg (we were planning to use the trains)

2) Do train tickets need to be booked well in advance?

3) Will normal train services be running during the tournament?

Hope you guys can help

Yes the train, check out www.rail.ch

There is no need to reserve seats.

Normal services and probably a few extra's.
