Izmir Atatürk Stadium was built to host the 1964 Mediterranean Games and originally had a capacity of 80,000; being for many years the largest stadium in Turkey.



It will now host the University Games and get a new roof:



I think Izmir has a bigger chance than Istanbul of getting the Olympics. :D

yes, but the stands must be cloeser to the track, so the capacity can be around 65.000

Thanks sercan
It seems that in Europe there are far too many stadiums designed for track and field. Those facilities are so rarely used and so it seems such a waste of space and money to have them. Most of these stadiums couldnt survive without football and so they should be designed for football.
