The Bouldering World Championship will be held below the impressive canopies of the Munich Olympic Stadium – one of Germany’s largest and historically most significant sports stadiums. For many years, the Olympic Stadium was mainly popular with football fans, both from Munich and all over the world, but it has predominantly been used for large events, concerts and sports competitions in recent years. The German Wikipedia entry describes the Munich Olympic Stadium as follows:
“The Munich Olympic Stadium is the central sports stadium in the Olympic Park. It was the main venue for the 1972 Summer Olympics. The Olympic Stadium is probably the venue that has hosted the most international sports events in Germany, among them the FIFA World Cup finals in 1974 and the UEFA European Football Championship finals in 1988, as well as three UEFA Champions League finals. From 1972 to 2005, the Olympic Stadium was home to the FC Bayern Munich and, with some lengthy breaks, to the TSV 1860 Munich. In 2005, both Munich football teams moved to the newly constructed Allianz Arena.
