The re-building of the national stadium transformed the local area. More than £70m was invested in road, rail, and pedestrian routes, to ensure the infrastructure copes with the influx of fans on event days – and benefits local residents, and businesses all year round.
The Learning Zone
Our educational facility is an innovative and inspirational environment for young people. Based inside the stadium, it offers a range of fun one-day activities, six-week courses and bespoke programmes, as well as a unique venue for workshops, conferences, and celebrations.

2. Jason Roberts Foundation
Established in 2007 by the former professional footballer, we support many of their different projects. We’re currently supporting the JRF Heritage Project, funded by the National Lottery, called ‘Inspire to Achieve’. The free exhibition is located at the Stadium, outside the West Ticket Office, and celebrates 14 players who grew up in the Wembley area and highlights how they have paved the way to inspire younger generations in the local area. There are QR panels that goes alongside that tells the stories of each player.
