Countdown to the Games
19-24 June 2022

Alte Försterei

The Stadion An der Alten Försterei is the largest football-only sports stadium in town. It is the home of the football Bundesliga team 1. FC Union Berlin. However, Alte Försterei is not only a place where football is played – numerous types of events are held here.

For us, this venue will be a very special place during the Special Olympics National Games Berlin 2022: we will celebrate the big Opening Ceremony here with all athletes, an impressive backdrop of spectators, and many goosebump-inducing moments.
