London – The Capital of Footbal

For sports fans visiting or living in London, there is one sport which stands head and shoulders above all others in the nation’s capital, and that’s football.

Of course, the ultimate football experience in London is to watch a game at the new 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium. The stadium is famed for its history, as well as the striking tall Arch that spans high above the stadium, which can be seen from across London. Some of the most
