From YorkMix.

Both were built in the 1930s but there, you might think, the similarities end.

Yet Bootham Crescent is now standing in for the Olympiastadion in Berlin, the huge stadium built by the Nazis to stage the 1936 Olympics.

This week York City’s ground is providing the backdrop for a “period sporting drama” set around the infamous games.

The club itself is not saying much. Here’s its statement in full:

York City are pleased to advise that we are currently hosting the filming of a period drama with the stadium mocked up to represent the Berlin Olympic Stadium of 1936.

The filmmakers, yet to be identified, will be at the ground for the next two weeks. No media are being allowed inside during this time.
