The Athens Olympic Stadium, venue for the 2008 IAAF Athens Super Grand Prix "Tsiklitiria", was the centre of the 2004 Olympic Games. It is situated at the Athens suburb of Amaroussion, and is part of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex (OAKA).

In the 2004 Olympics, the Olympic Stadium hosted 72,000 spectators, who attended the exciting athletics events, the football gold medal match as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

The stadium was built in 1982, in time for the European Athletics Championships of that year. Following an ATHENS 2004 and Ministry of Culture initiative, the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed the upgrade of the Stadium, including the new roof structure.

It has an elastic track with 9 lanes, a clinic, designated areas for VIPs and members of the Press, and is fully accessible for the disabled.
