Wembley Stadium has seen it all: from England's sole World Cup triumph in 1966 to Live Aid in 1985 and FA Cup finals that have seen giants toppled and records broken. The stadium has just won the right to host the Euro 2020 final, so there's plenty more history to be made as well.
V3 was at Wembley on Tuesday to hear from EE about how it is working with the stadium to boost numerous aspects of its tech, from the rollout of 300Mbps 4G in 2015 to new contactless payment and mobile-ticketing systems.
While there, we snapped a few shots that give a glimpse into the technology behind the stadium that keeps everything ticking.
Wembley and EE are working to bring mobile ticketing and contactless payments to the stadium to reduce queues and improve the experience for fans.
The control centre for Wembley is used on match days by a raft of organisations including the police and fire services, as well as the stadium's own support staff, with a raft of machines ready for action.
The rise of social media means Wembley now monitors and displays messages from those at events, carefully screened of course. Also, if you look closely you can see the mouse pointer from the system between the two graphics.
The image below on the left shows the antennas used to broadcast mobile signal over the crowds at the stadium. The smaller white ones are used within the stadium corridors and crowd areas.
The picture on the right shows the inside of the base station rooms at the stadium where all four operators – Vodafone, EE, Three and O2 – have their kit. As with all server and base station rooms they're not very eye-catching locations, but they are fundamental to the running of Wembley.
What is perhaps more eye-catching is the news from EE that it has installed almost 300 LED sensors in the Wembley arch that, from 2015, will change colour based on social media sentiment or crowd noise, helping transform the iconic Wembley arch.
