For the first 50 years of its existence, England played home matches in different parts of the country. At first they used to play cricket. Later, the game was held in the stadiums of different football clubs. England played their first match at Wembley in 1924 against Scotland. For the next 27 years, all games against Scotland were played at Wembley.
England’s last match at Wembley was against Germany on 6 October 2000. England lost the match 1-0. Since then, the team has played their home matches in 14 different stadiums. Old Trafford has been used the most. Following the opening of the new Wembley Stadium in 2006, the FA has decided that England will play their home match there until 2038. The main reason is economic. The FA is not the owner of the old Wembley but the owner of the new Wembley. The FA borrowed a lot of money to make it. So the FA wants to increase its earnings by hosting the England game at this stadium.
The first match was played at the new Wembley Stadium in March 2006. In front of 55,600 spectators, England’s Under-21 team faced Italy’s Under-21 team. The game was drawn 3-3, with David Bentley scoring the first goal for England. However, Italian striker Giampaolo Pazzini scored the first goal of the game in 29 seconds, and in the 6th minute he completed Wembley’s first hat-trick.
