"Today's FA Council meeting included a presentation and healthy discussion on the potential sale of Wembley Stadium," said the statement. 

"The full facts and figures of a £600m investment to improve community football facilities in England were outlined.

"The presentation also included detailed information on the commercial deal that has been discussed, including the protections that will be in place to ensure its status as the national stadium and the home of English football.

"A special meeting has been scheduled on October 24 for FA Council members to vote on the potential sale. The FA board will then take these views into consideration."
