Wembley keys to be handed over on Friday?


Start rubbing your disbelieving eyeballs. There is some incredible news. Builders of Wembley Stadium, Multiplex, could hand over the keys to the new Wembley Stadium as early as Friday, according to BBC Sport.

BBC Sports News Correspondent James Pearce says building work is almost complete and the FA Cup final is almost certain to be at Wembley on 19 May. If the FA does not receive the keys to the £757m stadium on Friday, it should happen on Monday. The first of two test events needed to get a safety certificate will then be a community day for 60,000 on 17 March. The handover of the keys is more than a year late, having originally been scheduled for January 2006. The second test event will be an England Under 21 match a week after the community event, and unless there are unforeseen problems, a safety certificate will be awarded in time for the FA Cup final to take place.
