Karaiskakis Football Stadium - Olympiakos Piraeus

Karaiskakis Football Stadium is a new stadium opened for the 2004 summer olympics. The stadium hosted a number of matches including one of the semi-finals. The Karaiskaki Stadium is home to Greeceā€™s most successful team, Olympiakos FC.

The stadium was originally built as a velodrome for the 1st Olympic Games of 1896. It was constructed on a site owned by the Athens-Piraeus train company, which was given free of any charge to the Hellenic Olympic Committee.

The Velodrome started to be used primarily as a football stadium in the 1920s. Its orientation was north-south, with one goal facing the sea and the other Pireos Street. It was almost totally reconstructed in the 1960s, taking the form of an olympic stadium with an athletics track around the football pitch. It also changed orientation to east-west, with one goal facing Piraeus and the other Neo Faliro. At that same time the stadium was renamed after Georgios Karaiskakis, a general in the Greek Revolution against the Turks (1821), who was killed not far from where the stadium stands. Karaiskaki kept this shape until 2003, having however fallen in disrepair, especially after Olympiacos left it in 1998.
