The new Wembley Stadium

Wembley is ready to open a brand new chapter in its proud history

Wembley's first major event was the 2007 FA Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester United - soon to be followed by the Football League play-offs and England's first game versus Brazil on 1 June.

But it is more than the new home of football. An estimated 1.5m sports fans will watch events like the return of rugby league's Challenge Cup final.

A revolutionary platform allows athletics to be held over the lower bowl, the NFL hosts its first regular season game outside of the Americas, while George Michael headlines the music events.

Welcome to new Wembley - good things come to those who wait.
