Euro 2020 final at Wembley: history and facts of one of the most famous stadiums in the world

The next semi-finals and the final of Euro 2020 will take place in the imposing Wembley Stadium . 60,000 fans will be able to attend the games offering a vision and a sporting atmosphere that has not been seen in a long time. Wembley is undoubtedly one of the most famous stadiums in the world that hosts not only football but also concerts and has a legendary history.

Wembley Stadium is located in the Brent district of North West London, England. The current structure was built to replace an old plant that had the same name on the same site. Opened in 2007, with a capacity of 90,000 seats , it is a world-class venue that attracts some of the biggest sporting, musical and entertainment events and more than 2 million visitors a year . The original Wembley Stadium was built to host the British Empire Exposition of 1924-25 and was completed prior to the exhibition in 1923. It served as the main venue for the 1948 London Olympics and remained in use until 2000 . The construction of the new stadium was carried out by the English firm Foster + Partners and the American stadium specialists Populous. The new stadium was officially opened in March 2007.

Architecture

The challenge of reinventing it for a new century was to harness its extraordinary heritage and yet create a place that was memorable and magical in its own right. With 90,000 seats, almost four times the height and covering twice the area of the original Wembley, the new stadium is the largest indoor stadium in the world .

The most striking architectural feature of Wembley Stadium is a giant arch, 133 meters high and inclined 22 ° from the perpendicular, which acts as the main support for the mobile roof. With the almost round shape of the plant and a circumference of 1 km, the arch today represents a new landmark for London and constitutes the iconic image of Wembley recognizable throughout the world.

Its geometry and spacious, sloping seats ensure that everyone has an unobstructed view of the game . To recreate the intimate atmosphere and distinctive ‘Wembley roar’ for which the old stadium was famous, the seats were positioned as close to the field as possible. The building can also be adapted to host a variety of events, from international athletics events to Olympic events. The facility also offers four of London’s largest themed restaurants and bars to host events of all kinds.
