QXL auctions off Wembley Stadium

It's a fitting and fixture thing

QXL.com has won the contract to auction off Wembley Stadium, the British home of football, which gets demolished next year to make way for a new national stadium. Paul Fletcher, commercial director for Wembley national stadium, said the company would pump the auction profits back into the new arena. "Callers have expressed a desire to own everything from the Twin Towers to the taps in the players' dressing room," he said. QXL opens the bidding early next year, but it has already set up a pre-registration auction website at www.qxl.com. It's signed up commercial property specialist Weatherall Green Smith, to help it flog Wembley's plant and machinery. ®
