Extra stadium info – Wembley Stadium

The Wembley Stadium, a UEFA Category 4 stadium, opened in 2007 as the most expensive stadium ever built. It is used by the national football team of England and it hosts the annual FA Cup final. Besides football, the stadium is also known as a venue for other events, like American football, boxing, concerts, rugby league and rugby union. It hosted its first Race of Champions, an international motorsport event featuring some of the world’s best drivers, in 2007. The German Formula One legends Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel won the Nation’s Cup and Mattias Ekström won the event. The same year, 81,000 people showed up at the venue for an American football match between the New York Giants and the Miami Dolphins. It was the first-ever NFL game in Europe. In 2011, the Wembley Stadium hosted its first UEFA Champions League final, which was won by FC Barcelona after defeating Manchester United 3-1.
