Arsenal's Emirates Stadium in London




The magnificent Emirates Stadium is a football field with a capacity for 60,355 spectators, and it is located in Holloway in the London Borough of Islington

The amazing construction is the home field of Arsenal Football Club since it opened in July 2006. It's important to say that it is the fifth-largest football stadium in the United Kingdom, and the third-largest stadium of any kind in London, after Wembley and Twickenham. Indeed, during the planning and construction stages, it was known as Ashburton Grove, after the road it was located on, before a naming rights deal with the airline Emirates was struck in October 2004. The construction stadium project cost £430 million, but this includes the cost of the associated infrastructure as well as the stadium itself.

It is a wonderful gem that every visitor must see in London. It has alos hosted some very important football games for the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.
