SOCHI - Olympic Stadium (40,000) - 2014 Olympics

A good reason to back the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games bid.

Spelendid stadium, especially for a Winters Olympic. If Sochi gets it, this will bring BC Place to shame for sure. What's the capacity?

Olympic Stadium—Opening and
Closing Ceremonies

The Sochi Olympic Stadium design was inspired by Russia’s
famous Faberge Egg. Located at the Black Sea coast, the
stadium walls and roof are one continuous glass surface
that reflects the brilliant sunlight off the sea during the day.
The intimate seating bowl opens to the north, allowing for a
breathtaking view of the Krasnaya Polyana Mountains, and the
upper deck is open to the south, allowing for a dramatic view
of the Black Sea. The stadium features 40,000 seats, all under
cover, and 60 luxury suites. The stadium will serve as a training
centre and venue for the Russian Football National Team after the
2014 Games. All athlete and technical official functions, including
entries are located on the same level as the field of play.

In the wonderful nation of former U.S.S.R. Anyways, I thought the stadium would have a bigger capacity than 40k. It reminds of the London Olympic Stadium sans ugly leaf protrusions. If they win, Vancouver might as well just blow up BC Place and have the ceremony on an open parking lot in Downtown Eastside. Same difference.

I think most of the winter stadiums were built especially for the Games and then having be demolished or converted into another use afterwards. Of course, BC Place is a clear exception. -.-

How about the infrastructure of the city? You need a lot more than just an Olympic stadium and other facilities to win an Olympic bid.
