Description: The London Olympic Stadium will be the centrepiece of the 2012 Summer Olympics. The stadium will have an 80,000 capacity making it temporarily the third-largest stadium in Britain behind Wembley Stadium and Twickenham Stadium.

After the Games, it will be transformed into a 25,000 capacity Athletics stadium and will host a variety of sporting, educational, cultural and community events. It will be a sustainable and vibrant facility, attracting other businesses and investment and acting as a hub for the communities living in and around the Olympic Park.
