Design

Designed by the German architect Günther Behnisch and the engineer Frei Otto, the Olympiastadion was considered revolutionary for its time. This included large sweeping canopies of acrylic glass stabilised by steel cables that were used for the first time in a large scale. The idea was to imitate the Alps and to set a counterpart to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, held during the Nazi-Regime. The sweeping and transparent canopy was to symbolize the new, democratic and optimistic Germany. This is reflected in the official motto: "The Happy Games" ("die heiteren Spiele").

English football concerns

The Olympic Stadium was infamous for being somewhat of a bogey ground for English football teams. Indeed, in its 23 years as the home of Bayern Munich only one English club managed to beat the home team there; Norwich City F.C. triumphed 1-2 in a second-round UEFA Cup tie on 4th November 1993. When Chelsea F.C. visited the stadium in a Champions League Quarter-Final clash in March 2005, they led 1-2 at the beginning of stoppage time after 90 minutes, when two quick-fire Bayern goals preserved Norwich's record. In May 1979 the stadium was the venue for the European Champions' Cup Final when Nottingham Forest F.C. defeated Malmö FF 1-0 thanks to a goal by Trevor Francis.

At the heart of the Olympiapark München in northern Munich, the Olympiastadion was the main venue for the 1972 Summer Olympics.
However, the stadium and its adjoining Olympic Village became infamous for the tragic events of the 1972 Olympics, rather than celebrated as the site of the great athletic achievements of competitors such as United States' swimmer Mark Spitz and sprinter Mary Peters.
