Briefly about Emirates Stadium

Emirates Stadium is a newly built stadium which can handle just above 60,000 spectators. Arsenal’s old home ground, Highbury, eventually became both too small and too worn out. The Arsenal board therefore decided in the early 2000’s to build a new stadium. Initially the stadium was meant to go under the name Ashburton Grove, but since there weren’t enough money and Emirates Airline was willing to contribute a large sum of money, the stadium was called Emirates Stadium up until the 2011/12 season.

Other things to do in London

Emirates Stadium - Arsenal FC

Many faithful fans of Arsenal were terrified when plans of a new stadium were brought up at the end of the 1990’s. Highbury was a legendary stadium where Arsenal had celebrated great triumphs, but at the same time it was clear that Arsenal had grown out of Highbury. The stadium could only take 38,500 spectators and was relatively small. Since 2006 the Emirates Stadium is the home address for Arsenal.

Facts about Emirates Stadium

Emirates is the third largest stadium for football on the English islands. Only Wembley and Old Trafford are bigger. Emirates Stadium can hold 60,361 spectators. Since the stadium is relatively new, the record attendance is the same as its capacity.

In 1997 Arsenal decided that it was time to move to a new stadium. They first contemplated trying to get a permit to expand Highbury, but the local government bodies didn’t favor this. They therefore bought an old abandoned industrial area called Ashburton Grove and drew up plans for a new, modern stadium.

It took a couple of years before the groundbreaking took place, and funding was a big problem. Thanks to funding from Emirates Airlines, however, the construction could begin in 2004. Two years later, in July of 2006, the stadium was finished. The costs for it turned out to be nigh on astronomical. In total, Emirates payed nearly five billion Swedish crowns. Because of the sponsorship from Emirates Airlines, the stadium will be called Emirates Stadium at least up until the 2021/2022 season.
