Wembley Way, Brent.
LONDON - Wembley, England, HA9 0WS
The original Wembley Stadium, known as the British Empire Exhibition Stadium or Old Wembley, was a football (soccer) stadium in Wembley, a suburb of north-west London. It was built in 1923 and finally demolished in the year 2000. It is famous for hosting FA Cup Finals, five European Cup finals, the 1948 Olympics, the 1966 World Cup Final, Final of Euro 96 and the Live Aid concert of 1985.
It was an old venue by the end of it's life, but many mourn the loss of the iconic twin towers.
The site is now occupied by the new Wembley Stadium that opened in 2007. It's construction was delayed many years, but the result is a modern sporting stadium with an iconic illuminated arch.
