The Emirates Stadium is a football stadium in Holloway, London, England, and the home of Arsenal Football Club. With a capacity of 60,361, the Emirates is the third-largest football stadium in England after Wembley and Old Trafford.
In 1997, Arsenal explored the possibility of relocating to a new stadium, having been denied planning permission by Islington Council to expand its home ground of Highbury. After considering various options, the club bought an industrial and waste disposal estate in Ashburton Grove in 2000.

HOK Sport were the designers of this famous British football gorund.
A year later they won the council’s approval to build a stadium on the site; manager Arsène Wenger described this as the “biggest decision in Arsenal’s history” since the board appointed Herbert Chapman. Relocation began in 2002, but financial difficulties delayed work until February 2004. Emirates Airline was later announced as the main sponsor for the stadium. Work was completed in 2006 at a cost of £390m.
The stadium has undergone a process of “Arsenalisation” since 2009 with the aim of restoring Arsenal’s heritage and history. The ground has hosted music concerts and international fixtures featuring Brazil.
