The Emirates Stadium, commonly referred to as the Emirates (IPA: [ði:ˈɛmərəts]), is a football stadium located in Holloway in the London Borough of Islington, and the home of Arsenal Football Club since it opened in July 2006. The stadium has an all-seated capacity of 60,355, making it the fifth-largest football stadium in the United Kingdom, and the third-largest stadium of any kind in London, after Wembley and Twickenham. During the planning and construction stages, it was known as Ashburton Grove, after the road it was located on, before a naming rights deal with the airline Emirates was struck in October 2004. The stadium project cost £430 million, but this includes the cost of the associated infrastructure as well as the stadium itself.
