The History of STADIUM 64/C64 Sports
April 1999 STADIUM 64 was born in the beginning of April 1999. The idea and concept is created all by myself. After only two weeks of hard work, the site were uploaded. I don't remember the first official day on internet. The site were growing very very fast in the beginning.

You can still see how the old design looked like: Old Stadium 64

One nice note about Track & Field, that I didn't know about until today. It was rereleased as a fullprice-game in 1987 and what was really nice; it was a little bit better than the original release. It has music in the intro and you can also choose to practice all 6 events if you want!
