Emirates Stadium

Emirates Stadium

The Emirates Stadium is a football stadium located on Ashburton Grove, north London, and is the current home of Arsenal Football Club. The stadium opened in July 2006, and has an all-seated capacity of 60,432,[1] making it the second largest stadium in the Premiership after Old Trafford, and the third-largest stadium of any kind in London, after Wembley and Twickenham. It was informally known as Ashburton Grove before a naming rights deal with the airline Emirates was announced in 2004. The stadium project cost £390 million, but not all of this was for the actual construction of the stadium itself.
