Wembley
Wembley
Stadium is a football stadium in Wembley, London, England, which opened in 2007, on the site of the original Wembley
Wembley
Stadium, which was demolished from 2002–2003.[11][12] The stadium hosts major football matches including home matches of the England
England
national football team, and the FA Cup
FA Cup
Final. The stadium is also the temporary home of Premier League
Premier League
football club Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur
while White Hart Lane is being demolished and their new stadium is being constructed. Wembley
Wembley
Stadium is owned by the governing body of English football, the Football Association (the FA), through its subsidiary Wembley National Stadium Ltd (WNSL). The FA headquarters are in the stadium. With 90,000 seats, it is the largest football stadium in England, the largest stadium in the UK and the second-largest stadium in Europe.[13] Designed by Populous and Foster and Partners, the stadium is crowned by a 134-metre-high (440 ft) Wembley
Wembley
Arch which serves aesthetically as a landmark across London
London
and structurally with the arch supporting over 75% of the entire roof load.[14] The stadium was built by Australian firm Multiplex at a cost of £798 million (£1.09 billion today).[15][5] Contrary to popular belief,[16] Wembley Stadium does not have a retractable roof which covers the playing surface. Two partially retractable roof structures over the east and west end of the stadium can be opened to allow sunlight and aid pitch growth. In addition to England

home games and the FA Cup

final, the stadium also hosts other major games in English football, including the season-opening FA Community Shield, the League Cup final, the FA Cup semi-finals, the Football League

and the National League play-offs. A UEFA

was designed by architects Foster + Partners

and Populous (formally HOK Sport) and with engineers Mott Stadium Consortium, who were a collection of three structural engineering consultants in the form of Mott MacDonald, Sinclair Knight Merz

and Aurecon. The design of the building services was carried out by Mott MacDonald. The construction of the stadium was managed by Australian company Multiplex and funded by Sport England, WNSL ( Wembley
Wembley
National Stadium Limited), the Football Association, the Department for Culture Media and Sport and the London
London
Development Agency. It is one of the most expensive stadia ever built at a cost of £798 million,[5][18] and has the largest roof-covered seating capacity in the world. Nathaniel Lichfield and Partners was appointed to assist Wembley National Stadium Limited in preparing the scheme for a new stadium and to obtain planning and listed building permission for the development.[19]

The all-seater stadium is a bowl design with a capacity of 90,000, protected from the elements by a sliding roof that does not completely enclose it. It can also be adapted as an athletic stadium by erecting a temporary platform over the lowest tier of seating.[20] The stadium's signature feature is a circular section lattice arch of 7 m (23 ft) internal diameter with a 315 m (1,033 ft) span, erected some 22° off true, and rising to 133 m (436 ft). It supports all the weight of the north roof and 60% of the weight of the retractable roof on the southern side.[21] The archway is the world's longest unsupported roof structure.[22] A "platform system" has been designed to convert the stadium for athletics use, but its use would decrease the stadium's capacity to approximately 60,000.[23] No athletics events (track and field) have taken place at the stadium, and none are scheduled.[24] The conversion for athletics use was a condition of part of the lottery funding the stadium received, but to convert it would take weeks of work and cost millions of pounds.[25] Construction[edit]

The stadium in its very early stages of construction circa August 2003

The initial plan for the reconstruction of Wembley
Wembley
was for demolition to begin before Christmas 2000, and for the new stadium to be completed some time during 2003, but this work was delayed by a succession of financial and legal difficulties. In 2004, London
London
Mayor Ken Livingstone
Ken Livingstone
and Brent Council
Brent Council
also announced wider plans for the regeneration of Wembley, taking in the arena and the surrounding areas as well as the stadium, to be implemented over two or three decades. Demolition officially began on 30 September 2002, with the Twin Towers being dismantled in December 2002. Delays to the construction project started as far back as 2003. In December 2003, the constructors of the arch, subcontractors Cleveland Bridge & Engineering Company of Darlington, warned Multiplex about rising costs. Cleveland Bridge withdrew from the project and replaced by Dutch firm Hollandia with all the attendant problems of starting over. 2004 also saw errors, most notably a fatal accident involving carpenter Patrick O'Sullivan for which construction firm PC Harrington Contractors were fined £150,000 in relation to breaches of health and safety laws.[26] In October 2005, Sports Minister Richard Caborn announced: "They say the Cup Final will be there, barring six feet of snow or something like that". By November 2005, WNSL were still hopeful of a handover date of 31 March, in time for the cup final on 13 May. However, in December 2005, the builders admitted that there was a "material risk" that the stadium might not be ready in time for the final.[27][28] In February 2006 these worries were confirmed, with the FA moving the game to Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

Construction of the new Wembley, looking east, taken January 2006

On 20 March 2006, a steel rafter in the roof of the new development fell by 1 1⁄2 ft (46 cm), forcing 3,000 workers to evacuate the stadium and raising further doubts over the completion date which was already behind schedule.[29] On 23 March 2006, sewers beneath the stadium buckled due to ground movement.[30] GMB Union leader Steve Kelly said that the problem had been caused by the pipes not being properly laid, and that the repair would take months. Rumours circulated that the reason for the blockage was due to Multiplex failing to pay the contractors who laid the pipes who then filled in the pipes with concrete. A spokesman for developers Multiplex said that they did not believe this would "have any impact on the completion of the stadium", which was then scheduled to be completed on 31 March 2006. On 30 March 2006, the developers announced that Wembley
Wembley
Stadium would not be ready until 2007.[31] All competitions and concerts planned were to be moved to suitable locations. On 19 June 2006 it was announced that the turf had been laid. On 19 October 2006 it was announced that the venue was now set to open in early 2007 after the dispute between the Football Association and Multiplex had finally been settled. WNSL was expected to pay around £36m to Multiplex, on top of the amount of the original fixed-price contract. The total cost of the project (including local transport infrastructure redevelopment and the cost of financing) was estimated to be £1 billion. For the new stadium the level of the pitch was lowered. During excavation of the new playing field, mechanical diggers unearthed a buried obstruction: the concrete foundations of Watkin's Tower, a failed attempt to construct a rival to the Eiffel Tower
Eiffel Tower
in London. Only the base of the tower was ever built before being abandoned and demolished in 1907; the site was later used as the location for the first Wembley
Wembley
Stadium.[32] Handover and opening[edit]

The new stadium was completed and handed over to the FA on 9 March 2007. The official Wembley
Wembley
Stadium website had announced that the stadium would be open for public viewing for local residents of Brent on 3 March 2007, however this was delayed by two weeks and instead happened on 17 March. While the stadium had hosted football matches since the handover in March, the stadium was officially opened on Saturday 19 May, with the staging of the 2007 FA Cup
FA Cup
Final. Eight days before that on Friday 11 May, the statue of Bobby Moore
Bobby Moore
had been unveiled by Sir Bobby Charlton outside the stadium entrance, as the "finishing touch" to the completion of the stadium. The twice life-size bronze statue, sculpted by Philip Jackson, depicts England's 1966 World Cup winning captain Bobby Moore, looking down Wembley
Wembley
Way.[33][34][35] Structure[edit]

The stadium contains 2,618 toilets, more than any other venue in the world.[36] The stadium has a circumference of 1 km (0.62 mi).[37] The bowl volume is listed at 1,139,100 m3 (1,489,900 cu yd), somewhat smaller than the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, but with a greater seating capacity.[38] At its peak, there were more than 3,500 construction workers on site.[39] 4,000 separate piles form the foundations of the new stadium,[37] the deepest of which is 35 m (115 ft).[37] There are 56 km (35 mi) of heavy-duty power cables in the stadium.[37] 90,000 m3 (120,000 cu yd) of concrete and 23,000 tonnes (25,000 short tons) of steel were used in the construction of the new stadium.[37] The total length of the escalators is 400 metres (1⁄4 mi).[37] The arch has a cross-sectional diameter greater than that of a cross-channel Eurostar
Eurostar
train.[40][41]

Pitch[edit]

Wembley
Wembley
Stadium pitch during England
England

Germany
in August 2007.

The pitch size, as lined for association football, is 115 yd (105 m) long by 75 yd (69 m) wide, slightly narrower than the old Wembley, as required by the UEFA
UEFA
stadium categories for a category four stadium, the top category. Since the completion of the new Wembley, the pitch has come into disrepute since it was described as being "no good" and "not in the condition that Wembley
Wembley
used to be known for" by Slaven Bilić
Slaven Bilić
before the game between England
England
and the team he managed, Croatia.[42] It was confirmed when the pitch was terribly cut up during the game, which was blamed by some[43] as the reason England
England
did not qualify for UEFA Euro 2008.[44] The Football Association
The Football Association
admitted in April 2009 after the FA Cup semi-finals
FA Cup semi-finals
that improvements are needed to the Wembley pitch after criticism of the surface by Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsène Wenger and David Moyes. The grass has been relaid ten times since the stadium re-opened in 2007 and was relaid again in the summer of 2009, ahead of the 2009 Community Shield.[45][46] In March 2010, the surface was relaid for the 10th time since 2007, when the stadium was built. In April 2010, the pitch was again criticised following the FA Cup
FA Cup
semi-finals, during which the players found it difficult to keep their footing and the surface cut up despite the dry conditions. The then Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur
boss, Harry Redknapp labelled it a "disgrace" after his side's semi-final defeat to Portsmouth.[47] After the 2010 FA Cup
FA Cup
Final, Chelsea captain John Terry said, "The pitch ruined the final. It's probably the worst pitch we've played on all year. It was not good enough for a Wembley pitch."[48] It was relaid with Desso semi-artificial pitch, ahead of the 2010 community shield game between Chelsea and Manchester
Manchester
United. Michael Owen, who previously criticised the pitch for causing him injury, said that it was much improved.[49] Covering[edit]

Close-up of the arch

The stadium roof has an area of 40,000 m2 (430,000 sq ft), of which 13,722 m2 (147,700 sq ft) is movable.[38] The primary reason for the sliding roof was to avoid shading the pitch, as grass demands direct sunlight to grow effectively.[50] The sliding roof design minimises the shadow by having the roof pulled back on the east, west and south.[51] Angus Campbell, chief architect, also said that an aim was for the pitch to be in sunlight during the match between the beginning of May and the end of June, between 3 pm and 5 pm, which is when the FA and World cups would be played. However, it was mentioned during live commentary of the FA Cup Final
FA Cup Final
in 2007 that the pitch was in partial shade at the start at 3 pm and also during the match.[52] The stadium roof rises to 52 metres (171 ft) above the pitch and is supported by an arch rising 133 m (436 ft) above the level of the external concourse. With a span of 315 m (1,033 ft), the arch is the longest single-span roof structure in the world.[37] Litigation[edit] The Australian firm Multiplex, which was the main contractor on Wembley
Wembley
Stadium, made significant losses on the project.[53][54] In an attempt to recoup some of those losses, the firm has initiated a number of legal cases against its sub-contractors and consultants.[55] The largest of these – the largest construction claim in UK legal history – was a claim for £253 million against the structural engineering consultants Mott MacDonald.[56] In preliminary hearings the two architecture practices which worked for Multiplex on the project were ordered to allow Multiplex access to their records in order for them to build a case. The practices, Foster + Partners
Foster + Partners
and Populous, estimated the costs of providing access and answering Multiplex's queries at £5 million.[57] The case was not due to be heard until January 2011.[58] Mott MacDonald
Mott MacDonald
has issued a counter-claim for unpaid fees of £250,000.[56] The dispute between Multiplex (now known as Brookfield) and Mott MacDonald
Mott MacDonald
was settled out of court in June 2010, the judge having warned that costs were likely to be more than £74 million.[59] Multiplex also took the original steel contractor, Cleveland Bridge, to court to claim up to £38 million[60] compensation for costs resulting from Cleveland Bridge walking away from the job. Cleveland Bridge, in turn, claimed up to £15 million from Multiplex. The case was finally resolved in September 2008 with Cleveland Bridge ordered to pay £6.1 million in damages and 20% of Multiplex's costs after the court found Cleveland Bridge was in the wrong to walk off site. The judge criticised both sides for allowing the case to reach court, pointing out that total costs were £22 million, including £1 million for photocopying.[61] Multiplex's ultimate bill is estimated to be over £10 million. In 2007, Multiplex also contested a claim from its concrete contractor, PC Harrington, that Multiplex owes £13.4 million to PC Harrington.[62] Tenants[edit]

2012 Olympic Games football tournament

The new Wembley
Wembley
was a significant part of the plan for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London; the stadium was the site of several games in both the men's and women's football tournaments, with the finals being held there.[63] The FA offices at Wembley
Wembley
Stadium, with social areas and boardroom, were designed by architects Gebler Tooth – who were also responsible for Team GB House at the London
London
2012 Olympics. Additionally, the Rugby League Challenge Cup
Challenge Cup
Final returned to Wembley Stadium in 2007, and the stadium also hosted both semi-finals of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. Wembley
Wembley
was one of the 13 venues for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Wembley
Wembley
has had a long association with American football. A United States Football League
Football League
game was staged there in 1984,[64] and between 1986 and 1993 the old Wembley
Wembley
Stadium hosted eight National Football League exhibition games featuring 13 different NFL teams.[65] Since the new Wembley
Wembley
Stadium opened in 2007 Wembley
Wembley
has hosted games during the NFL regular season. As a result of this, NFL commissioner
NFL commissioner
Roger Goodell stated in October 2009 that "he expects the NFL will start playing multiple regular-season games in Britain in the next few years, an expansion that could lead to putting a franchise in London."[66] On 20 January 2012, the league announced that the St. Louis Rams would become a temporary tenant of Wembley
Wembley
Stadium, playing an annual game at the stadium every year from 2012 to 2014; part of the reason the Rams were chosen was the fact that the team is owned by Stan Kroenke, who also is majority shareholder in a local Premier League team, Arsenal.[67] However, the Rams later cancelled their 2013–2014 games,[68] leading to the Jacksonville Jaguars

becoming new temporary tenants and hosting games in London

from 2013–2016.[69] This was later extended to 2020.[70]

The stage at the Live Earth concert held at Wembley
Wembley
on 7 July 2007.

Besides football, Wembley
Wembley
can be configured to hold many other events, particularly major concerts but also private events like weddings and conferences.[73] This is an economic necessity given that the stadium ended up costing the FA much more than was originally projected. The regular covering of the pitch for concerts has led to the pitch being relaid often (see elsewhere in this article). Regular changes to the pitch mean that it never matches the quality of its surroundings, or of the pitch of the old Wembley
Wembley
in its later years. The first concert at the new stadium was given by George Michael
George Michael
on 9 June 2007.[74] Bon Jovi were scheduled to be the first artists to perform at the new Wembley
Wembley
but the late completion of the stadium saw the concerts relocated to the National Bowl
