Olympiastadion Berlin, Germany.

Berlin's Olympiastadion in Berlin, the German capital, is the home ground of Hertha BSC of the Bundesliga.

The stadium has a long history and was built between 1934 and 1936 to host the 1936 Olympics and Albert Speer was one of the chief architects.

During "Hitler's games" in 1936, the African-American track and field star, Jesse Owens, won four gold medals.

The stadium has a long history and was built between 1934 and 1936.

During the 1974 World Cup, Olympiastadion hosted three matches in the first group stage. The stadium was renovated from 1972 to 1973 to build two new roofs over the main stands.

During the 1980s and 1990s, the stadium was showing signs of wear and tear and a move was made to update the facilities into a modern state-of-the-art stadium.

The plans for the stadium were ambitious as the Olympiastadion was to play host to the showpiece final of the 2006 World Cup. Renovations were eventually completed in 2004.

During the 2006 World Cup, the Olympiastadion was showcased to the world by holding four group matches, a quarter-final, and the final. Around a decade later, the stadium hosted the 2015 Champions League final between Barcelona and Juventus.

Capacity: 74,475 seats
