8) Wembley Stadium – Capacity: 90,000

Built on the site of the old Wembley stadium, the new Wembley cost the English FA over $1billion to build. The project also suffered a number of delays which caused the cost of the project to rocket. The world famous towers of the previous Empire Stadium were replaced with the Wembley Arch which measures 134 metres in height. The stadium is home to the England national team, as well as hosting all domestic cup finals and league play-off finals.
