View of the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.

The stadium will have a capacity of 80,000 with 25,000 permanent seats in its permanent lower tier. The lightweight steel and concrete upper tier holds a further 55,000 spectators.

A 20m-high 'wrap' will encircle the Stadium's upper tier. Its innovative design means the upper tier can be dismantled after the Games.

It is located in the south of the Olympic Park on an 'island' site, surrounded by waterways on three sides. Spectators will reach the venue via five bridges that link the site to the surrounding area.
