One of England's new football cathedrals. It is modern, comfortable, and has great sightlines, but it seldom has the atmosphere of the old Highbury.

History and description

The Emirates Stadium replaced Arsenal's previous home, Highbury, which had become too small and lacked the possiblities for expansion being hemmed in by housing. After much debate, the new stadium was finally built in 2007. First plans for the construction of a new stadium were made in the 1990s but also a move to the new Wembley Stadium was considered. After much debate, the new stadium was finally built in 2007.

Construction of the new stadium began in 2004 and cost £390 million.

The Emirates Stadium officially opened on July 23rd, 2006. The first match was a testimonial match for former Arsenal and Ajax player, Dennis Bergkamp.

Despite the competition from nearby Wembley Stadium, the Emirates Stadium has never hosted the English national team. However, the Brazilian national team has regularly staged friendlies at the stadium.

How to get to the Emirates Stadium

The Emirates Stadium is located in the north of London, near Kings Cross St Pancras railway station. If you're coming by car, the best place to park is the Northumberland Park multi-storey on N5.

On non-matchdays, the Holloway Road station (Piccadilly line) is the closest but it will be closed before the match and it is exit-only afterwards.

Alternatively, one can catch a train to Finsbury Park or Highbury & Islington main line stations. It is a 5- to 10-minute journey coming from Kings Cross station. During the week, trains depart from Moorgate as well. Drayton Park rail station, closest to the stadium, closes on matchdays.

Supporters are not advised to come to the Emirates Stadium by car on matchdays, and there is very little parking available around the stadium on non-matchdays.

Address: Emirates Stadium, London N5 1BU

Well done Mr Wenger, I don't always agree with his tippy-tappy football, but what he has done for the club is nothing but miraculous. The Emirates is a big part of his legacy! I have been going to see Arsenal since 1970, and how things have changed!

The Emirates Stadium is clean and tidy with plenty of room to move around. The stadium has progressed since Mr Wenger took over, and this was necessary for the club's long-term success. Well done, Mr Wenger! I don't always agree with your tippy tappy football, but you have done an amazing job for Arsenal. You have built the Emirates Stadium into a major part of your legacy, and I have been going to see the club since 1970.

Despite the poor atmosphere and seats, the stadium has potential. It's a great location near a lot of tourists, and it could be because they're not die-hard fans that the volume is low. Plus, the distance between seats and pitch can be improved.

One problem is that the atmosphere is poor. This could be because the stadium is filled with a lot of tourists who aren't die-hard fans, and that could possibly contribute to the low level of noise. Additionally, the seats are a little far from the pitch.

Nobby Clarke wrote: The Fantaic Stadium is well-organized and has plenty of space in the seats. It's also affordable to eat your own food there. After the game, take the Tube to Finsbury Park without too much of a crowd.

The Fantaic Stadium is an amazing place to attend a game. There is plenty of room in the seats, and you are free to bring your own food. After the game, it is easy to walk to the Finsbury Park tube station.

Despite excellent ground, the atmosphere in the away section is terrible. If you're near the front, the view is terrible.

Mr Woolwich wrote on February 22, 2015 at 10:45 PM: 0 out of 10. Very, very disappointing. Are you experiencing the same thing? You'll find more atmosphere at a morgue, where people are more interested in the prawn sandwiches and red wine than the football.

I absolutely dislike this stadium. It has a very dull atmosphere and the fans are apathetic.

JWB wrote: The stadium is nice. The seats are padded and the size is good. The ground does look bigger than Old Trafford and even Wembley, but it has a lot of leg room so it doesn't fit as many seats in. I would give it an 8.5 out of 10, as it is scary when sitting in the very top row with glass. It's an amazing experience though!

Arsenal is better than Emirates, but it lacks the atmosphere that Emirates had at Highbury. It's easy to get to by tube, but remember to allow plenty of time, because queues are really long getting into Arsenal Station.
