New Wembley may not be ready

LONDON

The new Wembley Stadium may not be ready for the May 13 FA Cup final.

British Sky News reported without citing sources, that the stadium would not be ready on time, with the final being played at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

However, the English FA said Wednesday no decision had been made.

“It would be wrong of us to take a decision today,” said Adrian Bevington, the FA’s director of communications. “No decision has been taken.”

Project officials said last month that the stadium in north London had a “70 per cent” chance of being completed on time.

Construction on the 757 million-pound ($1.5 billion Cdn) stadium in north London started in September 2002.

Paul Sergeant, chief executive of Millennium Stadium, said the Cardiff stadium was available.

“It’s the FA cup final,” Sergeant said. “We know what we need to do in terms of staging the game. We’ve been aware since the end of last summer that we are a reserve venue and the date is ring-fenced.”
