Venue Information

Olympiahalle is a multi-purpose arena in Munich, Germany, part of the Olympic Park and close to the Olympiastadion Olympic Stadium.

The arena is used for concerts, sporting events, exhibitions or trade fairs. In the past, it served as a part-time home for the defunct ice hockey team EC Hedos München. Olympiahalle opened in 1972 and was the venue for gymnastics and handball events at the 1972 Summer Olympics. The Seating capacity for the arena varies from 12,150 up to 14,000.

Olympiahalle also plays hosts to the annual Munich Sixdays, a very popular international track-cycling competition. Several other major international events were held in this venue, including the 1991 World Figure Skating Championships and the 1993 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships. Important basketball events that were held in Olympiahalle other than in the Olympics include the Final phase of the 1993 European Basketball Championships, the 1978, 1989 and 1999 Euroleague Finals and Final Fours.

The current seating capacity of will be extended to 15.500 during a massive overhaul that is scheduled to be completed in 2009. A new VIP area, a restaurant and an underground second arena ("Kleine Olympiahalle") with a capacity of up to 4.000 will be integrated in the new complex. The stage area will also be rebuilt, which will contribute to the increased seating capacity and at the same time allow faster access for stage crews, which is very important nowadays.

The Olympiahalle played host to the 2007 MTV Europe Music Awards on November 1. This was the last event before the renovation works begin.
