Tickets

It is fair to say that ticket prices for games at Wembley can vary and aren't always easy to purchase. For instance, rates for the FA Cup final will be much higher than a friendly match between France and England.

For example, in the case of the 2015-2016 season's League Cup final Liverpool and Manchester City were each allocated about 31,500 tickets at Wembley. In the case of the last, it is only possible to buy tickets from the clubs directly and can't purchase them through Wembley Stadium itself. Prices are broken down into five different categories depending on where in the ground the seat is and whether or not visitors are a concession:

Events

Fans of lower league teams get to head to Wembley from time to time, too. The Wembley stadium hosts the Football League Trophy final and the Football League play-offs. It has also been the ground for the final of the UEFA Champions League in both 2011 and 2013. During the 2012 Olympics, Wembley was used to host the Gold medal matches for the football tournament. Even if someone is not a football fan, then they probably shouldn't rule out the possibility of a trip to Wembley; it has been known to host the rugby league Challenge Cup final and the NFL International series and numerous music concerts. Even though not officially opened by King George V until April 23, 1924, the facility hosted its first FA Cup final the previous year, when an estimated 200,000 people crammed in to watch Bolton Wanderers FC defeat West Ham United FC 2-0. That match became known as the 'White Horse final,' as a mounted policeman took to the pitch to keep fans at bay. Wembley is also known to host the 1948 Olympic Games and the final of EURO '96 but, from an English perspective, unquestionably its finest hour came on July 30, 1966, when Geoff Hurst scored a hat-trick to inspire England to a 4-2 extra-time win against West Germany in the final of the FIFA World Cup. Besides football, Wembley held many other events, mainly grand concerts but also private events like conferences and weddings.This can be considered an economic necessity gave that the stadium ended up costing the FA much more than was initially projected.
