The Olympiastadion Berlin, a testament to the city’s rich history and sporting legacy, stands as a beacon of innovation in the realm of stadium technology. Built in the mid-1930s, this iconic structure has evolved over the decades, adapting to the changing needs of its patrons and the demands of the digital age.

The stadium’s recent technological overhaul, which includes the installation of a high-performance WLAN, is a testament to its commitment to providing an unparalleled experience for fans, athletes, and event organizers alike. This upgrade, a result of a partnership with Extreme, not only enhances the stadium’s operational efficiency but also broadens its capacity for inclusion, enabling visually impaired fans to fully engage with the stadium experience.

The stadium’s technological prowess extends beyond fan engagement, facilitating seamless coordination among various work groups, from photographers to organizational units. As the home of Hertha BSC and the host of the DFB Pokal men’s final, Olympiastadion Berlin is a shining example of how a sports facility can remain relevant and vibrant through continuous innovation. Now, let’s hear more about this remarkable transformation from Christoph Meyer, the Director of Events & Communications for Olympiastadion Berlin.
