About the Olympics Stadium: The Olympic Stadium is the largest covered amphitheatre in Québec, with seating for 56,000 spectators in the stands and up to 60,000 when the floor is used. Since it was first opened in 1976, the Stadium has welcomed some 66 million visitors. It was designed by French architect Roger Taillibert as a unique monument—one that’s become an international symbol for Montréal.
The Stadium hosts a wide range of events from all over the world. Both amateur and professional sports events have been held here. This ideal amphitheatre has also played host to numerous salons, exhibits and shows—from monster truck rallies to rock concerts by the biggest names in music, soccer matches and baseball games.
