The 'Home of Football' is a dynamic venue, capable of hosting a number of different sports and events

Wembley is one of the most iconic venues in football, having staged so many of the game's memorable moments.

The hallowed turf has witnessed a World Cup final and a European Championship final, as well as hundreds of FA Cup and League Cup finals, with plenty of historic results occurring over the years.

Other sports have been played at Wembley over the years too, with rugby and boxing events being held there, while American Football has become increasingly popular in the 21st century.

While sport has naturally figured prominently, the stadium is also a regular venue for some of the biggest acts in the music industry. 

So if you fancy paying a visit to England's 'Home of Football', Goal brings you everything you need to know about what's on and when.


How to get to Wembley Stadium


Once you've decided what you want to see at Wembley, the next step is deciding how to get there and there are plenty of transport options available.

If you opt to travel by train , the stadium is connected to two London Underground stations: Wembley Park station (Metropolitan and Jubilee lines) and Wembley Central (Bakerloo line). 

London Overground and National Rail (Chiltern) services are also available from the Wembley Central and Wembley Stadium Station respectively.

Wembley Park Station

National Express provides a coach service for Wembley and is the stadium's official partner for coach travel. Local Metroline  bus routes which go towards Wembley include numbers 18, 83, 92 and 224.

Wembley Stadium is described as a public transport destination, with limited parking, and thus driving by car is generally not advised. However, should you wish to drive by car you should try to book parking to avoid disappointment on arrival.

For the active among us, Wembley is also a bicycle friendly venue and there is parking available near the north-east corner of the stadium, beside the Green Car Park.


Football matches at Wembley Stadium


Wembley's chief function is to serve as a venue for football matches, so it's no surprise to see that games figure prominently in the calendar.

Not only does the stadium host England's international matches, it has also been the temporary home of Premier League club Tottenham while they await the completion of their new stadium.

Spurs will soon move into the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but they will play at Wembley until the end of December at least, with the likes of Manchester City as well as PSV and Inter visiting the London venue.

Gareth Southgate's England will complete their UEFA Nations League group commitments in November against Croatia and they will warm up for that game with a friendly against the USA.

Wembley will also play host to a number of competition finals in 2019, including the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, as well as the various Football League play-off deciders.
