National stadium celebrates its tenth anniversary.

  • Wembley celebrates ten-year anniversary
  • National stadium lit up iconic arch in colours of every football club to have played at the ground in past decade 
  • City have played at the venue twice since 2007
Wembley Stadium shone in City colours today in celebration of its ten-year anniversary.

To mark the occasion, and to show gratitude to all clubs, the national stadium lit up its iconic arch in the colours of every football club which has played at the ground since it reopened.

A total of 166 domestic, European and international men’s and women’s football teams have graced the Wembley turf in the past decade across a variety of competitions and friendlies.

‘For Bristol City’ was displayed across part of the stadium to celebrate the club’s two visits to the venue since 2007.

City’s first taste of the revamped stadium came in the 2007/08 Championship play-off final defeat to Hull City, before going on to lift the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in the memorable 2014/15 double-winning season.
