So lowly are the teams involved in this knock-out competition that the winners do not receive a cup or a trophy - just a meagre vase. Open to amateur teams in the eighth and lower tiers of the Football League system (including outfits from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man), the FA Vase was won last year by Dunston UTS, who beat West Auckland Town 2-0 in front of a crowd of 5,126 at Wembley Stadium. But what a day out for everyone involved!
The national stadium of the England football team, Wembley Stadium was re-opened in 2007 after a full rebuild to the tune of Â£757 million. The second largest stadium in Europe, Wembley took over three years to build and is located on the site of the previous 1923 Wembley Stadium, often referred to as 'The Twin Towers' or Empire Stadium, which was demolished in 2003.
