London Olympics: Wembley StadiumEvent: Football - both finals (men's and women's), two semi finals, one quarter-final, three preliminary games

The final of both the men's and women's Football competitions will be held at Wembley Stadium, the home of English football. Completed in 2007, the new stadium's iconic arch soars over 130m into the sky, more than four times the height of the towers of the old Wembley Stadium. The biggest of the six stadiums staging the London 2012 Football competition, Wembley has a capacity of 90,000 and is easily accessible from central London by tube or rail. Other UK stadia being used are the City of Coventry Stadium (Coventry), Hampden Park (Glasgow), Millennium Stadium (Cardiff), Old Trafford (Manchester) and St James' Park (Newcastle). Due to scheduling, the Football competition actually kicks off two days before the Opening Ceremony, with the Millennium Stadium effectively being the first place in Britain to see a bit of Olympic action. Wembley will host three preliminary matches (Sunday 29 and Tuesday 31 July, Wednesday 1 August), one quarter-final (Saturday 4 August) and two semi-finals (Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 August) before the gold medal games on Thursday 9 August (women's) and Saturday 11 August (men's). At London 2012, the men's competition will be an under-23s event, although each country will be allowed to include three older players in their team. There are no age restrictions for the women's competition.
