Olympic Stadium:   Nicknamed "The Big O", Montreal's Olympic Stadium was built solely for that purpose - The main venue for the 1976 olympic games.  The stadium was designed by French architect Roger Taillibert to be a very elaborate facility featuring a retractable roof, which was to be opened and closed by a huge 583 ft tower — the tallest inclined structure in the world - 20 ft taller than the Washington monument, yet only the sixth tallest building in Montreal!

Sadly, this beautiful landmark has been plagued by problems since it's infancy.  From structure failures, financial overcosts, to extreme labor strikes, Olympic Stadium will have a rebirth of sorts hosting the ceremonies of the 2010 winter olympic games in trying to present a better image.  The stadium was only 1/2 built for it's INTENDED olympics back in 1976!

Interesting Fun Facts

  • Well over its original budget($134 million), the stadium ended up costing $770 million dollar to construct.  By 2006, the final cost had risen to $1.47 billion dollars when calculating in repairs, modifications and interest paid out.  It took tax payers 30 years to finally pay off the cost, leading to its nickname of "The Big Owe" (a play on "The Big O", a reference to its circular shape).
  • Olympic Stadium holds the record for a soccer game attendance in Canada. At the 1976 Summer Olympics soccer final, 72,000 people witnessed East Germany's 3-1 win over Poland.
  • For those who appreciate baseball:  One red seat is marked specifically because of a monster 502-foot home run hit by then-Montreal Expo Vladimir Guerrero.  A yellow seat on the 300 level commemorates the late Willie Stargell's 534 foot home run!
  • The stadium holds 46,000.  On July 11, 2001, a Sunday, the Boston Red Sox played the Montreal Expos.  The Expos usually have 7,000 in attendance for their HOME games.  This day, there was 42,000 fans there and 35,000 were die-hard Red Sox fans!  The Expos never stood a chance!  The Sox won 8-5.  True.
