With 90,000 seats the stadium has the second largest capacity in Europe (after the Camp Nou, Barcelona), and the largest in the world with every seat under cove.
This capacity is separated into 3 tiers of seating, with the lower tier holding 34,303 spectators, the middle one 16,532 and the upper one 39,165
The stadium is also the most expensive stadium ever built.
I was there to watch a friendly match England vs Germany on 22. August, 2007 and the atmosphere was amazing, even though Germany won 1:2 :-)
The all-new Wembley hosted its first match in March 2007 - and I was lucky enough to go. It's up there with the finest stadiums in Europe; with 90,000 seats and more toilets than any other building in the whole world. Impressive!
You can't always guarantee a good game of football (especially if you're watching England) but it's well worth trying to get tickets for a game. If football's not your thing, Wembley plays host to American Football and Rugby League too.
News that the new Wembley stadium will be open to host the 2007 FA Cup was greeted with a little sceptism and plenty of sarcastic comment in our household. After months of arguing about who was responsible for the screwing in of lightbulbs (or something) the builders and the football association have decided to shake hands and try and find somebody else to blame...
Our national stadium has been the source of much sorrow for years, admittedly as a Manchester City fan we don't get there very often. The old Wembley was much maligned, grotty, difficult transport links, awful pies! Ok I made up the pie bit but pies are an essential part of the whole football watching process!
The new one looks great, the transport links are improving and I can't wait to go check it out. Unfortunately it will probably be as part of the crowd at a gig rather than a football match but I can live in hope :o)
The famous Wembley stadium currently lies in a sorry state awaiting redevelopment.
Down the years it has witnessed FA Cup Finals and England's World Cup Triumph in 1966. It was often used as a concert venue for top music acts.
Athletics meetings often take place down the road at Crystal Palace.
I have watched the match England vs Estonia in the Wembley Stadion. it was a great experience. England won 2-0
