The abandoned stadium which hosted the beach volleyball competition during the Athens 2004 Olympic Games is seen at the Faliro complex south of Athens July 29, 2014. Ten years after Greece hosted the world's greatest sporting extravaganza, many of its once-gleaming Olympic venues have been abandoned while others are used occasionally for non-sporting events such as conferences and weddings. For many Greeks who swelled with pride at the time, the Olympics are now a source of anger as the country struggles through a six-year depression, record unemployment, homelessness and poverty. Just days before the anniversary of the Aug. 13-29 Games in 2004, many question how Greece, among the smallest countries to ever host the Games, has benefited from the multi-billion dollar event.

Stumme Zeitzeugen

Zehn Jahre nach den Olympischen Spielen sind Athens Stadien nur noch Bruchbuden

Dass Griechenland kein Geld für gar nichts hat, ist hinlänglich bekannt. Unter der Misère leiden auch die Sportstätten der Olympischen Spiele. Gerade einmal zehn Jahre nach den Wettkämpfen sind viele von ihnen in einem bedenklichen Zustand.

    Highlight Diese Bilder sind beim Elliniko Olympic Complex entstanden. Diese Sportstädte liegt auf einem ehemaligen Flughafen. Ich glaube es war gar nie richtig geplant, diese Sportstätten nach den Olympischen Spielen weiter zu nutzen.
    Als Tipp: Mal GoogleMaps angucken: http://stoip.is/X3of

    Highlight Ist doch egal oder nicht? Oder müssen die 10 Jahre danach auch noch funktionieren? Seit ich mich erinnern kann wird vor und nach dem Anlass über die Austragungsorte gelästert. Man sollte das ganze vielleicht beenden. Irgend wann ist es einfach ausgelaatscht... Wetten Dass gibt es ja auch nicht mehr.

Mit diesen neuen Wettbewerben soll die Zitrone Fussball noch weiter ausgequetscht werden

Kaum hat die neue UEFA Nations League ihren Betrieb aufgenommen, kommen neue Pläne ans Licht, wie der europäische Fussball-Kalender weiter um- und neugestaltet werden soll. Gestern kündigte die UEFA an, ab 2021 einen dritten Europacup-Wettbewerb einführen zu wollen. Die FIFA plant unterdessen eine neue Klub-WM und konkurrenziert sich mit der UEFA um eine Global Nations League.
