Did you know?
- The original Wembley Stadium was known as the Empire Stadium, and was built as the centrepiece of a British Empire Exhibition at the end of the First World War;
- The new Wembley encloses 4,000,000 m³ inside its walls and under its roof. This is the equivalent of 25,000 double-decker buses or 7 billion pints of milk;
- The stadium’s pitch is enhanced by desso technology which combines synthetic grass with the real Wembley grass to strengthen the surface;
- With a span of 315 metres, the arch is the longest single span roof structure in the world and is visible right across London;
- The arch ensures that there are no pillars in the new stadium which could obstruct the views of fans;
- The stadium was designed with stands that are higher and closer to the pitch than the original stadium and with better uninterrupted views.
