Wembley celebrates 10-year anniversary

Wembley Stadium celebrated its 10-year anniversary on Friday, May 19 by lighting up its iconic arch in the colours of every football team who has played at the famous arena since its reopening.

So far, 166 European club and international men’s and women’s football teams have graced the Wembley turf across a variety of competitions and friendlies.

To mark the anniversary, and in a show of gratitude to all teams, Wembley Stadium displayed each club or country’s colours on the famous arch.

Our men’s team have made nine appearances at Wembley Stadium since its opening, winning on seven occasions.

In 2016, Arsenal Ladies lifted the Women’s FA Cup by winning 1-0 against Chelsea under the arch.
