Olympia Stadion in Berlin
|Opened:||August 1, 1936|
|Team:||Hertha BSC Berlin|
Visited on December 12, 2006 when I was in Berlin
I was invited by Mr. Kübler, manager merchandising and licenses of Hertha BSC. Mr. Kübler also is managing director of TopTeams, the main producer of mini-kits. He was kind enough to arrange a quick tour in the Olympia Stadion.
The Olympia Stadion was built to host the 1936 Olympic games.
30 years later the lighting was installed. In 1974, before the world championships, a part of the stadium was roofed over.
In 2000 the latest renovations started and have been finished in 2004.
In 2006 the stadium hosted the 2006 world championships finals.
