Olympiastadion in Munich, former stadium of Bayern


Olympiastadion (1972 - 2005)Munich - Olympiastadion

30.10.2016: The Olympic Stadium, originally built to provide venue for the 1972 Summer Olympics, was the home ground of Bayern Munich from 1972 to 2005 - Bayern spent 33 long years playing their home matches at this stadium featuring a running track. Most of the 71,000 seats are covered with canopies made of acrylic glass, which are reminiscent of spider webs. Since a renovation completed in 2011 the stadium has been used for commercial purposes. Just like Allianz Arena today, the stadium was also used by both Munich teams - Bayern and Munich 1860.

The biggest stadium in Germany – Signal Iduna Park

Dortmund - Signal Iduna ParkDortmund - Signal Iduna Park27.09.2016: This may come as a surprise for some people, yet the biggest stadium in Germany is not to be found in Munich, the home of the Germany’s most famous club, Bayern, but it is located 600 kilometres away – in Dortmund. Welcome to the Signal Iduna Park. In the mid 1960s, more particularly in 1966 Borussia Dortmund was the first German club to win the Cup Winners’ Cup. It seems therefore logical that the Dortmund “bosses” started to think that the then existing Stadion Rote Erde was too small and plans for construction of a new stadium started to be put forward.

During the twenty years the Parkstadion was in use, it provided venue not only for football world cup matches, but also for concerts given by well-known musicians, like Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones or Pink Floyd.

Allianz Arena – one of the most modern stadiums

Munich - Allianz ArenaMunich - Allianz Arena23.10.2013: The Allianz Arena is one of the most modern and amazing football stadiums in the world. Let’s look a bit closer at the home stadium of Bayern Munich. The Allianz Arena is still a “baby” compared to other European super stadiums. It was opened on 30 May 2005, its age can therefore be counted on the fingers of both hands. Yet, over such a short time the arena witnessed many football events. It hosted the 2006 World Cup or the recent final match of the Champions League, which will bring many more sleepless nights to some members of the Bayern management.
