    Default London (UK) | Olympic Stadium - Olympic Games 2012

    London - Olympic Stadium 2012

    The innovative Olympic Stadium design allows for an 80,000 seat Athletics stadium to be converted into a more easily maintained 25,000 seat venue after the Games.

    A 20m-high 'wrap' will encircle the 900m circumference of the Stadium. Artists will create a large mural on the wrap of historical sporting champions, participating countries' flags and sponsor logos, giving the Stadium its distinctive appearance.


    Where is it?

    The Olympic Stadium will be at the south of the Olympic Park on an island site surrounded on three sides by waterways, within easy walking distance of the Olympic Village and warm-up facilities.

    Getting ready

    Construction officially started on the Stadium on 22 May 2008. Prime Minister Gordon Brown was on site to see the work begin and meet some of the workers. Over the next few years over a thousand workers will help build the venue.

All Athletics events will take place in the Stadium as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, watched by millions of people around the world. It will have 25,000 permanent seats and 55,000 temporary seats that will be removed after the Games.

    After the Games


    After the Games, the Stadium will be transformed into a 25,000 capacity venue that will host a variety of sporting, educational, cultural and community events. It will be a venue for memorable sporting moments during 2012, but it will continue to add value to the local community for years to come.
