We are delighted to finally announce our involvement with Wembley Stadium (England FA), Twickenham Stadium (RFU), Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Goodison Park (Everton FC) and Turf Moor (Burnley FC). All projects are in conjunction with WOO.
WilsonOwensOwens Architects (WOO) was created by Derek Wilson and Kevin Owens following the completion of their combined role, leading design for the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) in London 2012. The practice is recognised around the world as a leading sport and event architect and is currently working on projects all over the world.
Wembley Stadium is owned by the governing body of English football, the Football Association (the FA). The FA headquarters are in the stadium. With 90,000 seats, it is the largest football stadium in England and the second-largest stadium in Europe. It hosts major football matches including home matches of the England national football team, and the FA Cup Final.
Twickenham Stadium is owned by the governing body of rugby union in England, the Rugby Football Union (the RFU), the stadium hosts home test matches for the England national rugby union team. The RFU headquarters are also in the stadium.
Edgbaston Cricket Ground, also known as the County Ground or Edgbaston Stadium, is located in Birmingham, England. It is home to Warwickshire County Cricket Club, and is also used for Test matches, One Day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals. Edgbaston was the venue of the first senior game under floodlights in English cricket and has hosted the first day/night Test match in England in August 2017 when England played the West Indies.
Goodison Park is the home of Everton FC and has hosted more top-flight games than any other stadium in England as Everton have remained in the top tier of English football since 1954.
Turf Moor is a football stadium in Burnley, Lancashire, England. It is the home ground of Premier League club Burnley Football Club, who have played there since moving from its Calder Vale ground in 1883.
