Wembley Stadium, the national soccer stadium and host for numerous concert events is in Brent. The current stadium was opened in March of 2007. The stadium can hold more 90,000 fans, and with it's ingenious arch holding up the roof, the stadium has no internal pillars to block views. The roof can open and close over the seating area, but leaves the pitch open to the elements.

Wembley Stadium is located close to three rail stations. Wembley Park is on the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines, and is approximately 10 minutes from the stadium along Olympic Way. Wembley Central is on the Bakerloo line of the underground and is serviced by London Overground services, and is approximately 15 minutes walks from the stadium.
