BERLIN JOINS THE LIST OF CITIES WITH STADIUM PROBLEMS
Published August 15, 1995
Berlin's Olympic Stadium, built for the '36 Olympic Games, is "practically falling down," according to Clive Freeman of the Deutche Presse Agentur. Experts say it will cost $200M or more to repair the facility. The city hopes to host the World Cup in 2006, and will need use of the stadium. The stadium's outer ring is reportedly in a "brittle state," and "lumps of concrete fall periodically from the roof." A net protects visitors from "falling segments" (Dan Hanley, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 8/15).
