The Cathedral of Football
The old Wembley Stadium was without a doubt the most emblematic stadium in Europe. One of the best footballers in history, Pelé himself, called it the "Cathedral of Football" thanks to its unique atmosphere and construction.
Wembley was home to the final of the 1966 World Cup and hosted five Champions League finals - won by legendary clubs like AC Milan, Manchester United, and Ajax.
And as well as football, Wembley was central to the 1948 Olympic Games, and for hosting some unforgettable concerts: including artists like Queen, Guns N Roses, Michael Jackson, and Célene Dion
in 2002 it finally closed its doors, and on the very same site, they built New Wembley, the biggest stadium in the United Kingdom.
With a capacity of over 90,000, New Wembley is the largest sporting complex in the UK and the second-largest in Europe after Barcelona's Nou Camp.
It belongs to the English FA and is where the England national team plays their home games. It hosts the FA Cup every year, as well as concerts and even games of that other sport, American Football!
