Deutsches Stadion was a multi-use stadium in Berlin, Germany. It was initially used as the stadium of German football championship matches. It was replaced by the current Olympic Stadium in 1936. The capacity of the stadium was 64,000 spectators. Located in the Grunewald Race Course, it was due to host the 1916 Summer Olympics that were cancelled due to World War I. According to the stadium construction plans by Otto March the Deutsches Stadion would follow the model of construction of the White City Stadium main venue of the 1908 Summer Olympics held in London. The stadium would be equipped with a 600-metre running track with a 665-metre velodrome outside and next to the football pitch would be installed a 100-metre track and outside to the velodrome would be installed a 100 metre by 22 metres swimming pool.
