Wembley lights up for The Bees

Arch lit up as part of Wembley's tenth anniversary celebrations

19 May 2017

Wembley Stadium celebrated its tenth anniversary on Friday 19 May by lighting up its iconic arch in the colours of every football team who has played at the famous arena since its reopening.

One hundred and sixty six domestic, European and international men’s and women’s football teams have graced the Wembley turf in the last decade across a variety of competitions and friendlies. To mark anniversary, and in a show of gratitude to all the clubs, Wembley Stadium displayed each of the club or national colours on the famous arch.   The name and crests of the clubs were also shown on the outside of the stadium.

The Bees have visited the National Stadium twice since it was re-opened in 2007. In April 2011, Brentford were beaten 1-0 by Carlisle United in the JPT Final and it was a similar story two years later when Uwe Rosler's side lost out to Yeovil Town in the Sky Bet League One Play-Off final under the arch.
