HI

Check out these links for Wembley Stadium construction pics. Let me know if they are of any use to you. I must admit it took me a few hours trawling the net to find them.

You have to register first but once you have just type in Wembley Stadium in search box and you will find dozens of excellent pics. Probably the best site for quality pics good enough to print.

Go to projects-select topic then click on Wembley Stadium and you will find a few interesting articles mainly concentrating on the arch lift.

They would have gone with any bank that would have lent at the lowest rate. No national preferences would have been given. Maybe West LB specialises in Stadium construction finance and were better able quantify risk associated frovm such a project or profit margins are higher in the Uk and they were willing to accept a lower return than a UK bank.

It looks nice but don't you think it looks awfully like the new Arsenal stadium across the city.

London's Wembley Stadium may be huge but it wont be the biggest.

The biggest stadium in the world will most likely be Melbourne's
MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) which hosts Australian Rules Football,
Cricket.

Once building works are completed, it is expected the MCG will have a capacity in excess of 100,000 people as stated in their website.
This may not be the biggest in the world in terms of seats available but
it is in terms of area (Sheer Size). This is because the dimensions of a cricket/aussie rules football ground are much larger than football/rugby/american grid iron grounds.

I dont think wembley was ever going to be the biggest stadium in absolute terms, but certainly it will be the biggest football/soccer stadium you're ever likely to see..

Not at all, it had the biggest capacity but only cos it wasn't seated, later the stadium became an all seater and has a capacity of 75,000 if I remember correctly. The stadium in North Korea, I forget it's name is 150,000 capacity and is all seater. It's huge.

Let's not forget that Wembley before it became all seater once had an unofficial world record crowd capacity of over 200,000 once.

You can fit an awful lot more people in stadiums that are not seated.

No. It won't be finished until early 2006. I believe you are playing us at Old Trafford.

Fifa gave the English FA license to hold the 2006 FA cup final anytime they wish in the 4 week block before the World Cup according to some press release on Sunday. They must be struggling with deadlines. Still, I don't give a shit, it's still going to be ******* awesome.

A new wembley is long overdue. The old stadium may have had history but it was left to rot for many years and thus was probably one of the worst in terms of facilities and comfort. Hopefully this will be reversed and start a new breed of stadiums.

wow what can i say about the last pics posted here... Its an ugly stadium, it has no seats, no roof, no shops. Plus, it has the worst lighting. It's just full of badly dressed people, and monstrous machines. I wouldn't go near that thing.

Yep, the old wembley looked more like a prison with some of the worst access and most cramped seating I'v ever seen in a stadium. Thats why I never really bought into the nostalgia of those calling for a renivation rather than a rebuilding, with modern seating and access standards they'd have been lucky to fit in 50,000 seats.

It would have been nice to have a 100,000 plus stadium but I think you have to look at how often your going to have that kind of demand for games. I can't see FA cup semi's(well unless they feature Man Utd), friendlies, qualifing matches verus smaller countries and playoff finals which are going to make up the majority of the stadiums use filling that many seats. Hopefully as rumoured way back in this thread the FA have left the option of boosting the capacity to 100-110,000 if we ever stage a world cup or european championship when you'd guess the cash to increase the transport infrastrcture would be there.

Also I believe the "record" that it often talked about is for the largest number of covered seats in a purely football based stadium. I.E. not one with a running track around the pitch which pushes the stands back. Thats my main fault with alot of big football stadiums, having the fans miles away from the pitch takes away from the atompshere IMHO.

They've been selling out games at smaller regional grounds for the past few years but the way friendlies have declined recently I have trouble seeing them shifting 110,000 tickets for many of them(Brazil, Argentina and Germany maybe). My point is that maybe they considered its a better option to have better access/facilities for all the games rather than a slightly larger capacity for the small percentage of them that will sell that many tickets.

You obviously didn't go to a lot of England games pre-1996.

I was one of the 20,000 odd who bothered to show up for England v Colombia (scorpion kick game) and it was STILL horrendous getting out of the car park.

While crowds are great now for England games, we can guarantee that they alwayas will be. Especially at £30 quid a seat.
