Wembley Stadium still not finished

Wembley Stadium may not now be ready to until June 2007, although it should have been ready in August 2005. It seems likely the F.A. Cup will be held in the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff again this year.

I discussed the delay of Wembley when it was first announced that the 2005 FA cup final would be held at the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff. The millenium stadium cost 126 Million pounds and was finished in time for the 1999 Rugby World Cup.

A statement made to the Australian stock exchange by builders Multiplex comes a day after the £757m London venue’s owners, Wembley National Stadium Ltd (WNSL), said it should be finished by the end of this year.

The pitch is laid and the goalposts erected. However builders still have to finish the roof, fix the drainage network and install seats and safety systems. Safety needs to be tested with a series of smaller events before a full capacity crowd can attend an event.
