Olympic Stadium Transfers
Olympic Stadium is located in the area of Marousi in Athens, which lies 9 km from the city center. The stadium was originally designed in 1979 and built in 1980–1982. It was completed in time to host the 1982 European Championship in Athletics. It was inaugurated by the President of Greece, Konstantinos Karamanlis, on the 8.th of September 1982. The stadium was extensively renovated in time for the 2004 Summer Olympics, including a roof designed by Santiago Calatrava, and innovatively positioned with Enerpac hydraulics.
The roof was added atop the sidelines and completed just in time for the opening of the Games. The stadium was officially re-opened on 30 July 2004.
It hosted the athletic events and the football final at the 2004 Summer Olympics. It also hosted the opening ceremony on the 13.th of August, and the closing ceremony on the 29.th of August 2004. The stadium's attendance was reduced to 71,030 for the Olympics. The initial capacity was some 75,000, though only 56,700 seats were made publicly available for the track and field events, and slightly more for the football final. The turf system consists of natural grass in modular containers with inbuilt irrigation and drainage systems. It also hosted the 1991 Mediterranean Games and the 1997 World Championships in Athletics.
