Obviously, football matches are the most famous event to regularly take place at the venue. Whenever any event of this kind takes place, people should make any easy online bet on the 1xBet platform.
History of the venue
The main purpose of this venue was to have a new home for Arsenal. Back then, it was playing in the old Highbury stadium. The stadium finally opened in the summer of 2006. Its first match was a friendly between Ajax and Arsenal, which was a tribute match to Dutch legend Dennis Bergkamp, who was retiring from the game. It is possible to watch live matches today on 1xBet, including those taking place at this ground.
It has a seating capacity of 60,361 people, a pitch size of 105×68 meters, and a construction cost of roughly 390 million pounds sterling (581 million euros). HOK Sport, which previously designed the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon and the New Wembley Stadium, designed the stadium. Its name is derived from a 15-year deal with Emirates Airlines, which began in 2006. When the lease expires, the stadium will be renamed ‘Rosa y Nato’ in honor of the club’s original proprietors. It should not be forgotten to watch live matches on 1xBet today, and of course to wager on them.
A strange political connection
Remains of polonium 210, a highly radioactive substance, were discovered at the stadium where former Soviet spy Aleksandr Litvinenko was poisoned in December 2006. The murder suspects were present at the Arsenal vs. CSKA Moscow match on November 1 of the same year. However, the levels were insignificant, and it was swiftly determined that there was no danger to the public’s health. Something that is not a risk either is to visit 1xBet – football bet online and place wagers on Arsenal and the rest of the teams that make the Premier League up.
Now, the stadium continues to be a place where Arsenal displays its beautiful game. Not only that, because it is a venue that also can be visited when matches are not being played. Football bet online 1xBet, especially on Arsenal, can be made without issues.
