Wembley Stadium is London’s most famous sporting attraction. Regarded as the most iconic football stadium in the world, Wembley famously hosts England’s international football matches and the final of the FA Cup, the world’s oldest football tournament. The venue also hosts various other high-profile football matches including the League Cup Final.
While football is the sport most closely associated with Wembley Stadium, the venue also hosts the final of Rugby League’s oldest competition, The Challenge Cup. Wembley also hosts an annual NFL game, where two of the USA’s top American Football teams contest an actual NFL fixture in London.
Aside from sporting events, Wembley host concerts by major musical acts. Since reopening in 2007 (after a major rebuild) the stadium has hosted concerts ranging from cheese-pop acts like George Michael and Take That to indie/alternative rock giants like Oasis, Muse and U2. Each Sunday Wembley Stadium’s car park hosts the famous Wembley Market, which is England’s largest Sunday market, with over five-hundred stalls. No sports-loving London tourist should visit the city without taking the Wembley Stadium Tour, where you can experience the full scope of England’s national stadium.
Wembley Stadium will add a new slant to its history in 2012 when it becomes a venue for the London 2012 Olympics. Wembley Stadium will host some of the London Olympic Games' football matches, including the finals of both the men's and women's tournaments.
