Review from Daisy D.
Insane in da membrane, insane in da brain!
This stadium was just...wow! That's all I can say. We were here for the NFL International Series: Jacksonville Jaguars v. San Francisco 49ers. I know about the rule of no alcohol in the stadium during games, but they must have lifted that for this game as we definitely had our fair share of beers during the game.
The lines for all the stands (at least the ones I was in) always moved quickly. Was disappointed when they ran out of curry sauce for the fries, but it wasn't the end of the world. Getting to the stadium is quite easy and while it was mob scene leaving the stadium, it was one of the nicest large crowds I've ever been forced to stand in.
Don't know if/when I'll be presented with an opportunity to be in this stadium again, but if I am, I will not turn it down.

Bruce Springsteen ***** what a showman, what an experience.
Wembley stadium, what a shambles.
The queuing system is all over the place, the staff are aggressive and there were lots of people jumping the queues and arguing...creating a horrible atmosphere.
We wouldn't come back in a hurry.

Review from Susy C.
I'm an American. I came here October 2010 for the 49er vs. Bronco American football game.
It was a huge journey getting here from Westminister but well worth it. The tube is super easy to navigate anyway.
This has got to be the most well organized stadium I have ever been to in my LIFE.
This place was insanely clean. Can't say much for the food since I didn't eat. You won't find me complaining about the price of beer since the American dollar is so weak everything was pricey to me anyway..
Getting back out of here was slightly confusing but we met some cool blokes along the way.
Thank you London!

A must see venue if you are a sporting fan.
Whether it's football, rugby or American football - Wembley seems to have it all. I absolutely love the venue. I'm rather fortunate, I used to work at the venue for a couple of years, on and off.
Having worked at other football stadiums, I can definitely say that this is one of the best, if not the best stadium in the country. If you can, try and get yourself a ticket on Level 2: the best seats in the house! And you're likely to bump into a famous face or two. The hospitality in Level 2 is amazing, I mean business class style. Have a walk around if you get a chance, there's some interesting "toys" towards the middle of Club Wembley, it's a shame people don't always see them. The whole place looks amazing and feels brand spanking new.
The only thing I'm not keen on is the price of food inside! It can cost you something like £8 for chips and a burger - they are tasty burgers, don't get me wrong, but I don't know if I'll be happy paying that. Mind you, if you can afford the tickets at Level 2, you're probably not going to complain about £8. Also, be wary of when you exit then stadium. If you are going to a cup final, you can be sure there's going to be a wait to get on the train - but don't worry, there's always the merchandise sellers on Olympic Way to keep you amused.
A great day out, especially for the family.
Review from Dan H.
Been here four years on the bounce now for the annual NFL match, this time it was the Rams v The Pats.
The view all around the stadium is great, and staff are very helpful.
Only gripes are the prices of food and drink, £4.80 for a Carlsberg? Piss take in my opinion and the location is a pain in the arse to get to, also get's overcrowded by the tube stations, but saying this it's still worth a visit, cracking stadium.
Review from Lauren V.
Well! My *400th* review and it goes to none other than a London icon -- which I was lucky enough to visit for the first time during an Olympic match of football/soccer.
Consider me a clean slate when it comes to the checkered past of its renovation, but also without knowledge of its amazing history. Well, at least you have a chance to learn about the latter, as they have plenty of plaques, statues and commemorative paraphernalia to explain just how special this venue is.
I found my experience here to be top notch. You can't beat walking out of the Tube station and getting that glorious view! Then, down the steps and straight into a convenient walk that leads right up to the doors. No confusion about which direction or where to turn -- literally, you walk straight out the station and into the stadium. Along the way you'll walk with other patrons, brandishing their kits, flags and makeup, and of course the burger and kebab stands, which builds up the excitement and atmosphere.
We had mid-level tickets so security was a breeze and the entrance lobby was incredibly modern and sleek. A bit soul-less for a sports venue, I admit, and perhaps more suitable for a conference, but at least in good nick. If I had one gripe about this place, is that it didn't have much "personality".
We headed up to our appropriate level, which offered a restaurant, one main concession with beer, wine, tea/coffee and crisps (card or cash). Definitely lacking in food options (one Fish and Chips shop (£10) or a steak sandwich cart; or the incredibly overpriced £25/pp sit down fare of Flute -- and you still have to order yourself by fighting the crowd at the bar, pub-style ... wha?? However, people seemed to be eating homemade food or out of bags from M&S, so I must have missed the memo that you don't have to get gouged by stadium food fare. Honestly, in context for a sports venue, prices weren't awful -- £9 for two Heineken, £1.60 for water and about £2.50 for small can of Pringles. (Oh, and FYI you're never allowed to take alcoholic drinks to your seats at matches here in UK no matter the venue)
Our seats were fantastic. They were cushioned and super comfy for a sports venue, and letting people by wasn't the tragic purse-stepping, knee-smacking, shuffling affair per usual. The atmosphere was low-key, but I assume that was because it's the Olympics and we're all meant to be on good behavior. No standing, no swearing and no hurled insults (very different than my Arsenal experience!). Our seats stayed nice and dry while the lower level first 20 rows or so got soaked.
OK, now for the big test -- siphoning 80,000 people out of a venue, down that same walk (that looked so spacious when it wasn't wall-to-wall with people at once) and onto the Tube. Since you don't cross any roads, there isn't too much an issue, but they still sectioned off groups to keep the Tube platforms manageable. My husband and I thought we'd beat the whole mess and turned down a side road to go to a pub to wait it all out. But our friends got stuck in the middle and couldn't escape. It took them about 30 minutes to make it from their seats to the Tube. Which is not bad at all -- I can name plenty of post-concert parking lot fiascos that lasted literally hours. About 25 minutes after they arrived at the pub, we went back to the Tube and voila! No crowds, we jumped right on.
I would be stoked to go back to a game here, remembering to splurge for the mid-level seats and to check into bringing in your own food to save cash.
Review from Flora H.
I attended the Patriots / Buccaneers game at Wembley back in October 2009.
It was strange because they blocked off the first 20 or so rows from the field, which worked out great for us because we were in, like row 21.. but it kinda sucked that you couldn't get any closer if you wanted to.
Getting to and from the stadium takes quite a while, and without many (affordable) options except for the tube to get there, be prepared for quite a bit of standing.. and squishing...
Definitely way too expensive, but a decent stadium. Nothing too great about it, but it gets the job done.
I have to admit my opinion is biased from the fact that I watched an American football fan here and it felt like the crowd just wasn't the "same" as it is at a game in the US.
Review from Craig M.
Well it's an icon isn't it. It's huge, impressive and actually manages to foster a fun and excitable atmosphere for the games they put on here - when it's full that is.
The downsides are;
It's a schlep to get here from Central London
The prices for food and beer are outrageous
Unless you're seated on the right side of the stadium, you choose to leave early or can outrun Usain Bolt, you're going to be queueing for quite some time to get back on the tube at Wembley Park.
Not enough to put me off going to the games mind you, only I've been spoilt in the past by living in Cardiff and having the Millenium Stadium experience on a number of occasions. I think it might actually be quicker for me to get to the Millenium than to Wembley sometimes.

I've been here a few times over the years and the stadium is ok but I wouldn't say amazing.
The food a drink is pretty pricey considering the rest of Wembley is pretty cheap.
£6.50 for a plain hotdog with a bit of onion and nothing else is far too expensive for the quality and quantity. If you like hot chocolate then don't order one here. It's just hot water with a little bit of chocolate powder and again will set you back a few quid.
When I've been before they've always announced when half time was over and the match was going to start except when I went last Saturday when they didn't announce it at all. Which is pretty bad, especially as it was a cup final as people had paid good money to see the match.
The pitch itself is nice but I feel that the facilities provided hamper this from being a great stadium.
I also fail to see how those idiots spent £1 billion on building this with a budget of £100 million. It barely looks like a £100 million stadium. For a billion it should be a lot better.

The problem with the old Wembley, despite all its character, history and aura, was that it was a bit dated and run-down.
The problem with the new Wembley is that by the time it was actually open to the public and available for use, it was a laughing stock because of the time and money it took to build. There was too much expectation by then and with the problems of the pitch and the fact that it needs time to create its own standing and magic moments as a new stadium, people have kind of written it off as an expensive failure.
But if you go, for the user it is great. The facilities are fantastic and the access is very good. The view is awesome from all the way round the ground and the seats are more comfortable than at other arenas.
It is an achitectural masterpeice and I'd love to go back and cheer on England in an important game. Let's hope they sort out the surface so the place can get some positive press for a change.
Review from Tim D.
The new Wembley Stadium is phenomenal.
It's huge, certainly one of the biggest stadiums in the world. The architecture is amazing, and the giant load-bearing arch means that there are no columns or pillars required inside for support, thus no obstructed views. The seats are steep and high.
Being on the concourse is like being in an airport, they're so huge and shiny. Toilets are plentiful, and - when I was there twice last summer, for Muse and Live Earth - still sparkling clean, with vases of flowers inside.
There are plenty of helpful staff. Food and drink is plentifully available, although food is exorbitantly expensive (the smallest non-snack item is a cheeseburger at £7.50). Beers aren't as wildly expensive as you'd fear, though.
Both times I was there I was in the Club Wembley area. This meant that I was under the north roof (although it didn't rain) in wider, cushioned seats that had padded armrests. Being in a cushioned seat rather than a hard plastic one is definitely worth it if you're going to be there for 7 hours, as I was for both my marathon concert events. There is a posh bar inside for people in the Club section, but it was closed for the two concerts I attended.
I feel the same about Wembley as I feel about the O2: it's crappy that there are some events that you just can't see in a smaller venue, but if you have to go big, this is going big in style. I don't see how a 60,000-person venue could reasonably be made to be any more comfortable, clean, impressive, or useful.
Review from Matt B.
As a patriotic Welshman, the fact Wembley is inferior to Cardiff's Millennium Stadium despite having 15,000 extra seats and having cost several million more gives me great satisfaction. The endless problems with the pitch is symptomatic of what is wrong with Wembley. In the middle tier there is a seafood and champagne bar where people actually watch the game on TV instead of from their expensively acquired seats. The normal football food such as burgers and hot dogs is obscenely priced.
I have been a couple of times to see an England friendly and the League Cup Final in March. Those who have heard Eamon B's account of the Wayne Rooney scandal will be pleased to know that its origins can be traced to four seats in the middle tier.
Whereas the Millennium Stadium is right in the centre of Cardiff next to more that 50 licences premises in a 5 minute walk, Wembley is on the Metropolitan and Jubilee lines making it a pain to get to and when leaving there are the inevitable queues for the Tube as fans try to get back to Central London.
Review from Chris R.
"We're the boys in Red and we're on our way to Wem-ber-ly" Granted, I came for the Wembley Cup, but it was still the song I had in the back of my mind.
This little competition took place between world renowned Celtic and Barcelona and featured lowly African champs Al-Ahly and some team named Tottenham. Regarless, the stadium is amazing. Granted I never got to see the old Wembley, but I've heard it was quite the transformation, even if it did go over budget and piss a lot of people off.
Getting in and out of the stadium was easy, although it is a long walk to either the tube or overground, but it isn't as congested as I thought it would be. I'd love to come back and see an England game or FA Cup final and see this place go absolutely off. I think that is really what Wembley is meant to be used for.

I know, I know. You hate Wembley. We all hate Wembley. It's been drilled into us. "It was way to expensive and the atmosphere is terrible!" you say. But then think of the alternative, travelling to Cardiff to see your team play in the final, or having to suffer the atmosphere at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium. It's then you realise that maybe Wembley isn't so bad.
To begin with - there is NOTHING better (Stadium-wise) than approaching it by car, or train, and seeing that amazing view. Wembley, with it's big arch and shiny silverness, is unmissable -- you can't take your eyes away from it.
And as any football fan will tell you (unless they're a West Ham fan and rarely get to visit), there is no better feeling than walking up 'Wembley Way' towards the stadium. This is a great walk. You and eighty thousand other people bustling through trying to make your way to the entrance. You will experience many strange things - like the mind-boggling confusion as to why anybody would queue for an hour to buy a horrid burger.
As you enter the Stadium - it all feels a little too modern and corporate. Where are the thugs? Where is the smell of urine?. Don't these guys know anything about good Stadia?.
But all is forgiven as you make your way to the gangway and up into the stands. At this point, it is revealed - Wembley Stadium. This is where England play. This is the home of homes. This is, truly, the home of football. And you feel it. It's magic.
Wherever you sit, your view is fine. So don't worry about the cheap seats. You'll love it. But the problem that comes is the well documented one about atmosphere. There isn't one. I'm not sure why. Maybe people aren't singing. Or maybe there's something wrong with the acoustic set-up and there's a bunch of people living in the countryside near Scotland wondering why they can hear lots of football chanting, I don't know.
That feeling you get at The Den, or at White Hart Lane - when the sound of passionate men screaming, singing and chanting courses through you - is entirely absent here. It feels more like a school trip where a bunch of kids are forced to sing church songs.
Is it worth visiting? Of course it is. It's a bit too expensive, ticket-wise and especially food-wise, but it's Wembley. You kind of don't mind. But if you're not wanting to spend the big bucks to see a football match or to see a band play, then why not head over and see a tour? They're not too expensive and you get treated to the history of the Stadium, which is now more a feeling than a fact; because the true history of Wembley was lost when they knocked the original one down.

South San Francisco, USA
I went to Wembley Stadium twice during my 3 month stay in England. I first went to the NFL Series Niners vs. Broncos. That was a lot of fun, because I missed watching football while being overseas. The tailgate before the game was fun, they even had a fake golden gate bridge when you enter the tailgate party! I met a lot of british people who had interest in American football, it was good really good experience.
The 2nd time I went to Wembley was for the Friendly match England vs. France. After seeing my friends get tickets on http://FA.com I decided to follow and get one ticket. It was amazing! I was row 2 right near the goal. I had good seats. It was fun to watch soccer at Wembley.

I was a massive fan of the old Wembley Stadium which set high standards which the new one doesn't quite live up to. That said, the fact that I witnessed one of the greatest games of recent times (Charlton 4-Sunderland 4 in a play-off final) and an Oasis concert might have given my visits a real sense of occasion, unlike my first experience of the new one, a drab friendly between England and USA.
The stadium itself is nice enough. I like the fact that you can see the arch when approaching, it's not quite as grand as the twin towers but it is a good replacement. There are no pillars like the old stadium either which mean that everyone gets a good view and even the seats behind the goal are closer to the pitch. But the one thing which the new stadium doesn't have is the atmosphere. Even for a friendly game this was bad. It seemed like people couldn't be bothered with it. My mind did wonder during the game as at times I forgot I was watching the game in the stadium as opposed to the TV.
Food and drink wise it is extortionate. I would strongly advise eating and having a drink before attending any event here. You can feed a whole group for the price of one at Wembley.
For those who remember the old stadium, prepare to be disappointed. But even I have to concede that even though the stadium has lost some of its character, it has improved in some areas. Perhaps it needs a little time to achieve its own history and character before the atmosphere develops. We shall see.

Wow mixed reviews or what!!!
Well we didnt walk the walk from the tube...we parked for £15.00 it was money well spent...as it was a freezing night and between a few of us it was cheaper than the train.
Its all singing ringing coloured lights etc outside and was well laid out.There are lots of bathrooms and bars...food and drink are at there normal rip off prices but not nealy as bad as they could have been.
Overall we had a great time we could see the band just fine and they sounded great...good night had by all.

I have not been to wembley since the new stadium has been built and do not intend to go anytime soon due to the extortionate prices!
How can they expect working class families to take the kids out for an england match, you would amost need to re-mortgage the house in order to raise the money (just for the tickets). Then for food and drink Please do not get me started.
The whole re-building saga as well is shocking, delay after delay, problem after problem and a sheer and utter waste of money.
It is also tragic that the FA brought in an Aussie company to undertake the project who were inexperienced.

In another example of how England can waste tremendous amount of taxpayer money, deliver a piece of architecture years behind schedule & way over budget that has many structural and planning flaws, please welcome Wembley Arena to the mix (the Millenium Dome & Bridge among a long list of others).
I went to Wembley for the NFL football match between the Giants & Dolphins - the stadium, while gorgeous from the distance as you exit the tube station, is soulless, lacking any charisma, and basically just a large concrete mausoleum. The roof was supposed to be retractable to close up for those rainy English days & nights, but alas it only closes partially. Oh, and by the way, those bits still leak, so many people had to put up with large drops of water & leaks despite being in covered seats.
The concession stands are a joke - poorly organised, never enough food or staff, overpriced and of the lowest possible quality you can imagine. Staff working at the gates are clueless about entrances and access - basically this is a poorly constructed, poorly managed, overprices typical English enterprise. Just awful.
Its amazing how in this day & age with so many millions of pounds invested, time & consulting fees, the degree of ineptitude on display. Only fitting that the England manager that christened this shambolic stadium was in fact the shambolic Steve McLaren.
I will stay away from this place if possible.
Review from Rebecca C.
Ok, my review is probably going to be an odd one because I was here for the Olympics and I'd imagine things were a bit different than they normally are on a typical day.
The bad first, everything I tried to order from the concession had all of a sudden just run out - wine ? Nope, didn't have it. Fish and chips ? Sorry, fresh out. Mini donuts ? The whole stadium has runs dry of mini donuts, no jokes.
So, my unlucky day ? Affirmative.
Also, why the heck can't you drink at your seat ? I'm paying just under £5 a pint should I really have to decide between watching the match and quenching my thirst ?
The good - its a nice stadium - well maintained by competent staff and kept clean. The seats were comfy and we had a lot of leg room. The line ups were never outrageous and the pizza I ended having in lieu of the fish and chips was warm and tolerable tasting. Overall not a bad way to start off my Olympic meanderings !
Sitting beneath David Beckham and Prince William was a major plus in my book - what a blast ;-)

Coventry, West Midlands
Well they are right Wembley is huge! I went to watch England v Germany. I am a member of England fans so got £5 off my ticket price, opted for the £40 ticket (paid £35). Big mistake! I can believe how high up I was, There was about 4 rows of seats behind me!
I used a lift up to the seating levels, then on escalators up 5 levels and then I had to climb about another 30 steps and I have breathing problems!
The players looked like ants, I would advise you not to go for the cheap seats if your going. I never had any food there, no way was I climbing back down those stairs.

Judging Wembley Stadium purely as a sports stadium, I am sure it is unsurpassed. From the moment you enter the arena (especially in the higher tiers) you are blown away by the size and the majesty of the place. I thought the Millennium Stadium would be as good as it got in the UK, but Wembley takes it to another level - it is unbelievable.
And for watching football it is phenomenal. I've seen Euro qualifiers, World Cup qualifiers and Play Off Finals in the ground, from different areas (side of the pitch, behind the goal, low and high tiers), and from each the view was outstanding. A sea-change from the bad old days at old Wembley.
The inevitable criticism is with the cost. Although match tickets are well priced (England games at £25 compares well with club matches at worse stadia) the extras (especially food) are steep to say the least (although hardly different from other top level football).

Not bad for a large scale venue. We got lost a few times but staff were helpful enough.
The only thing that annoyed me was how long the queue to the cloakroom was. We waited in line for an hour only to find there was only one person working there, in what appeared to be a cupboard. They ran out of hangers so everyone had to throw their stuff in plastic bags, which were then thrown in the cupboard. We missed half the support act, and decided to leave early to avoid the cloakroom rush.
The gig was great (we went to see Pendulum). The lasers and sound system added to the experience. We were slightly put off by constantly being offered drugs which i guess could be avoided if spot searches were carried out.
Drinks were extortionate at £3 for a bottle of water!
Overall, i would only go if there was someone i really wanted to see, had no baggage, and felt like getting high.

The architecture is great, simple and modern.
I was there for a MUSE-gig and in the first row and the sound was awesome.
The food was quite good for a stadium, but could be cheaper (as almost everything in London -.-)
A friend of mine told me, that the atmosphere at football games is not that good but this does not influence my rating until I checked on my own.

I've seen both music and comedy here, and it really is too big for comedy in my opinion, but the gig I went to was quite suited to it - there was floor seating as well as tiered seating which worked for that particular artist. It's well-run and easy to get to and navigate, so it's not a bad venue for large-scale concerts.

Bottom line is that Wembley Stadium is overated and in my opinion way too much money was spent rebuilding it and making it look modern. Dont get me wrong its great for the occasional football match or gig but the stadium is just incapable of accomodating the extremely large crowds whcih turn up for these events. Of course there is a simple soloution to this STOP SELLING SO MANY TICKETS!!! Instead of being greedy and over crowding the stadium to try and make the money back which was spent rebuilding the stadium why not just sell a average amount of tickets so people can actually have room to breathe. Sure they might take a loss in profit but they could allways make up for this by adding advertisements around the inner stadium. Its just a shame really as the staidum does have potential its just not being used to the best of its ability at the moment.

I went to the old Wembley many times, and for sheer improvement on that, this should get five stars. The flooded toilets and miniscule cramped wooden seats have been replaced by a stadium worthy of our country. I am certainly proud of this, and the moanings about the delays and overspend (most of which was covered by the developer, not the FA) have long since been forgotten.
Of course the food prices are ridiculous, enough to knock a star off, and when the stadium has been paid for, i very much doubt they'll come down.
But overall, great!

I was at the Wembley stadium for a concert so my review is not from a sports fan's perspective. The iconic arch is the first thing you see when you get out of the wembley tube station. There are plenty of bars and food stores around the stadium to keep you well fed during the event, expect to pay ridiculous price and don't expect anything fancier than hotdogs, chips and beers. I was in the pitch area so I was quite close to the stage but I wouldn't want to be sitting on 'Level 5 all the way at the back which looked like miles away from where I was.

A visually stunning stadium, football matches to concerts here are great to experience. Every seat gives a great view of the pitch while the compactness of the stadium (whilst being huge) really generates a good atmosphere when there's a big game.
The catering at the stadium is massively over-priced, and poor quality - a stadium of the future with the catering of the past. Old Bob's Greasy Burger Van wouldn't look (or taste) out of place.
The transport links are vastly improved from the old Wembley.
All in all a good stadium, but I still miss those white towers

I visited the new Wembley Stadium last summer to watch the FA Vase final featuring my home town club (Truro City). Having been to Old Trafford and the Millennium Stadium I had high expectations of the New Wembley and it did not disappoint. Several miles from the stadium we could see the spectacular arch which towers over the stadium. When we got to the stadium itself, I found Wembley stadium to be the nicest stadium I have ever been to. Inside it was clean, well organized and there were no queues for toilets. Unfortunately, you can not park at the stadium, so you either have to take a coach or the underground to get there.

Great stadium for sport. The uninterrupted view from every seat is great - bet you could see from the toilets in some places. Overpriced food and drink absolutely no surprise whatsoever. Architecture is interesting when the game isn't (good thing as it's England's stadium - apparently we can only put on a performance in another country when nobody's watching).

Wembley stadium is Englands National stadium. All major sporting internationals, and all major English club matches take place here. Alot of rugby matches take place here too. It cost the FA(football association) a fortune to build it.
It has a capacity of 90,000, which is one of the highest in modern day football.
One of the most unique features of this stadium is that it has a roof which can be opened or closed. The atmosphere there is always immense.
Definetly a good place to visit.

I think people forget how much this cost in the first place and how long it took to build. If you look back at the project as whole, it was a disaster - but thankfully the stadium itself has lived up to the hype. Still the same travel problems though, which means staying behind for a few drinks afterwards on most occasions
