The great Wembley sale kicks off
The Twin Towers are in high demand
Fans are to get the chance to own a piece of football history when Wembley Stadium goes on sale on the internet.
Memorabilia from the world famous building, due to be demolished next year, will be auctioned off by online auctioneers QXL.com.
Commercial director of Wembley National Stadium, Paul Fletcher, said: "The internet will allow us to reach the most amount of people and will give the auction a wider appeal.
"Callers have expressed a desire to own everything from the Twin Towers to the taps in the players' dressing room."
He said that money raised from the auction would go towards the £475m needed to replace the stadium.
"There should be a telephone line so everyone in England has the opportunity to make a bid," he said.
Jim Rose, QXL.com's chief executive officer, said the internet was far more accessible to the public than an auction house such as Sotheby's.
"Wembley is an international icon - by having an online auction we're giving people all over the world a chance to own part of it.
"It isn't just about football - the stadium has hosted major rock and pop concerts - from Live Aid in 1985 to the recent Net Aid."
