HOK Sport+Event+Venue

HOK Sport+Event+Venue has revealed this new model of its Wembley Stadium scheme at MIPIM, amid newspaper reports, denied by the Football Association, that the £757 million project is on the verge of financial collapse.The 90,000-capacity arena, developed in conjunction with Foster and Partners, will be the world's largest football venue, giving spectators 30 per cent more seating than the old stadium. It will have a partially retractable roof, designed to allow the sun to shine on the whole pitch.The FA insists the scheme remains on target to open in spring 2006.
