In 1984 Sarajevo hosted the XIV. Olympic Winter Games. The opening ceremony was held in the Asim Ferhatovic Hase Stadium, which at that time was named Olympic Stadium (see my previous tip).
In the vicinity of the stadium stands the Olympic Tower with the characteristic Olympic rings and the orange logo of the games.
The official mascot was Vucko, a cute little wolf, who is very popular for all kinds of souvenirs. You can still find him near most Olympic sites.

The Grbavica stadium is a real football shrine, however Zeljo, throughout it’s history had played home games at different locations. After the second world war, Zeljo has played at the Sixth April stadium which was located at Chenich Vila. This stadium was a host to Zeljo’s games in the ‘46/47 season. During that season, Zeljo was the only club from BiH that played in the 1st Yugoslav League. In 1953, the works at stadium Grbavica were finally completed. The opening game was played on 13th of September and Zeljo won that game against Sibenk (Croatia) 4:1. The stadium was operated and managed by a closely knit group of volunteers from RSD Zeljeznicar. In the very begingin the staudim had a running track, however the track was later on removed. During the ’68 to 76 time period the stadium went thru a series of reconstructions and Zeljeznicar played it’s games at the municipal Koshevo stadium.
During the Serbian attacks on the city of Sarajevo the old wooden part of the stadium went up in flames and was permanently destroyed. The field and the surrounding ares itself were in the middle of the war activities and the whole area was the playground for some of the biggest battles in the city of Sarajevo. After the reintegration of the city, Zeljeznicar regained the control over the stadium and it was officially reopened on the 2nd of May 1996. The opening match was between Zeljo and FK Sarajevo and the game

We came to Sarajevo on the day one of the local footie clubs, FK Sarajevo, won the Bosnian league. On the way into the city we were stuck in traffic already - with crazy supporters all around us. Strangely enough they were all wearing Arsenal shirts because FK Sarajevo is wearing bordeaux coloured outfits as well ;)
When we went into town in the evening to meet VTer Santiago we ended in the official championship party which was huge. Thousands of people were singing the club song on the streets and there was a stage on Ferhadija where obviously the team was celebrated. It's was a thrilling atmosphere which seemed rather friendly. Only when a beer bottle crashed down to the ground only one metre next to where we were standing we escaped.
We met Santiago in a bar in Dalmatinska to watch the Champions League Final between Milan and Liverpool FC which unfortunately the wrong team won. When we went home there were still people singing in the streets. They obviously didn't care much for the Champions League.
Equipment: Whatever you wear, it should be bordeaux when FK Sarajevo plays, blue if NK Zeljeznicar plays ;) A helmet wouldn't be bad for championship celebrations ;)
