History of the Wembley Stadium

The original stadium was opened in 1923, and was first called the Empire Stadium - designed for the British Empire Exhibition. It was built by Sir Robert McAlpine, and cost around £750,000 at the time. Plans were to demolish the stadium at the end of the exhibition, but Chairman of the Empire Exhibition Sir James Stevenson decided to keep it standing.

The first footballing event held at the stadium was the FA Cup Final in 1923. It later became the go-to stadium for cup finals and international matches, including the 1966 World Cup Final, which England famously won.

It was also well known as a live music venue. The first band to ever perform there was Yes in 1969, but it would later go on to host The London Rock and Roll Show and Live Aid. Michael Jackson performed there 15 times, the most prevalent performer the stadium ever saw.

The Wembley Stadium of old was eventually shut in 2000, and plans to rebuild it began soon after, but due to many unforeseen circumstances, it didn't reopen until 2007. Since, it has hosted multiple football and rugby finals, the 2012 London Olympics, American Football, and the musical stylings of artists like Madonna, Metallica, and Beyonce.

Wembley Stadium facts

  • The famous twin towers have made way for an iconic arch over the stadium, which has been totally rebuilt and is now one of the most modern and breathtaking arenas in the world.
  • Though not officially opened by King George V until 23 April 1924, the stadium hosted its first FA Cup final the previous year, when an estimated 200,000 people crammed in to watch Bolton Wanderers FC defeat West Ham United FC 2-0. That match famously became known as the 'White Horse final', as a mounted policeman took to the pitch to keep fans at bay.
  • There are 107 steps in the trophy presentation route.
  • 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 pitch is covered by specially designed protective panels for rock concerts which creates space for up 25,000 fans to stand.
  • Each of the two giant screens is the size of 600 domestic television sets.
  • Wembley Stadium has 90,000 seats, 310 wheelchair spaces and 400 press seats.
  • The stadium holds an astounding 2,618 toilets.
