The first professional football match at the new Wembley Stadium took place on Saturday. It saw England's under-21 team take on Italy's under-21s before nearly 60,000 fans.
Organisers were glad things went more smoothly than the first match at the old stadium, the 1923 FA Cup final, when huge crowds spilled on to the pitch before kick-off.
Arguably the most famous moment at the old Wembley came on 30 July 1966 when England beat West Germany 4-2 to win the World Cup for the first, and so far only, time.
Wembley Stadium hosted the Olympics in 1948, the first games for 12 years after the break caused by World War II, and - until 2012 - London's last Olympics.
The track around the edge of the pitch was used for greyhound racing for many years. This race was in 1972.
Motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel was a famous visitor to the stadium in 1975, when he attempted to jump over 13 buses on his motorbike. He crashed on landing.
Wembley was home to one of the world's most famous music events, the London leg of the Bob Geldof-organised Live Aid concert to aid famine relief, which took place on 13 July 1985.
In the 1990s it was decided Wembley needed rebuilding. The famous Twin Towers were originally intended to be retained and these three proposed designs all incorporated the towers.
But the towers could not be preserved and after demolition began in 2002, the towers were among the last bits still standing before they too were knocked down in 2003.
After six-and-a-half years of hurt, the fans make their way towards the stadium on Saturday for their first taste of football there since October 2000.
And they are treated to a feast of football, with six goals, including one after just 29 seconds, the first hat-trick at the new stadium - and a great arena in which to watch football.
