Wembley Stadium

Visit the football cathedral of England, the largest sports venue in the UK, Wembley Stadium.

Wembley Stadium, whose official brand name is Wembley Stadium connected by EE, is an internationally recognised, world-class football stadium in Wembley, just outside of Central London. Wembley is England’s national football team stadium and the largest sports venue in London and the UK.

Wembley Stadium
The Wembley Stadium's pitch uses the latest technology, integrating the use of artificial grass fibres with real grass.

With a total of 90,000 seats, it is also the second-largest stadium in Europe. Over the years, it has become famous for hosting some of the biggest and best sports events in the world, including the 1996 World Cup, the 1948 Olympics, and the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

The original Wembley, built in the 1920s, was demolished in 2002 and rebuilt anew on the same site, which you can visit today. The stadium’s signature feature is the lattice arch, visible across London, that spans 315 m (1,033 feet) and rises 133 m (436 feet) above ground level.

Aside from the many sports events, the venue has also welcomed several music events, the most notable of which was the 1985 Live Aid concert. The stadium is widely considered one of the most important in the world, to the point that Brazilian footballer Pelé once called it the cathedral, capital, and heart of football.
