The Olympic Stadium Montreal was created for the Summer Olympics of 1976, and now functions as a multi-purpose facility for many large-scale events in the Montreal area. Canada's largest stadium by seating capacity, the Olympic Stadium Montreal can accommodate upwards of 56,000 people.
Designed by French Architect Roger Tallibert, the Olympic Stadium Montreal design is highly elaborate - a factor which may have contributed to the fact that it took a period of 12 years for construction of the Olympic Stadium Montreal to reach completion. Indeed, by the time the 1976 summer games took place, the Olympic Stadium Montreal was only half built. The games took place in the venue nonetheless, despite its not having a roof or tower - the feature which is now the defining characteristic of the Olympic Stadium Montreal, measuring 175 metres and holding the title of the world's tallest inclined structure.
Since the 1976 Summer Olympics, the Olympic Stadium Montreal schedule has featured a wide variety of events, including but not limited to those of a sporting variety. Indeed, in addition to football, baseball and soccer games, the Olympic Stadium Montreal schedule has listed major international events such as 1984's World Youth Rally, attended by Pope John Paul II. In July 1977, a Pink Floyd concert saw the Olympic Stadium Montreal play host to its biggest paid crowd ever - a staggering 78,322 people.
