The new stadium is a UEFA category 4, or elite, stadium. With 90,000 seats, it’s the largest stadium in the whole of the UK and the second-largest in Europe.
Besides sporting events, Wembley has been built in such a way that it can be configured to hold other events such as major music concerts, as well as private events like weddings and conferences. Huge musical names such as Take That, George Michael, One Direction, U2 and Madonna have played at Wembley, with Madonna holding the record for the highest-grossing concert in one night. The stadium has also been the location for two major charity concerts to date: Concert for Diana and Live Earth.
