Olympic Stadium - Kiev
The Olympic Stadium is the largest of the venues being used for the European Championships and has undergone a full makeover, which included building a transparent roof. The finishing touches have now been made and in early November 2011 the stadium held its first match since the revamp - a thrilling 3-3 draw between Ukraine and Germany.
The Olympic Stadium stadium is located in Kiev - the capital city of the Ukraine - and has a capacity of 70,050.
