Bobby Moore was a cultured centre back who was known for his sportsmanship and humility. As well as lifting the World Cup for England in 1966, Bobby Moore also captained West Ham to the FA Cup in 1964.

The statue of Moore was designed by Philip Jackson and commissioned by the Football Association (FA). The statue was unveiled when the new Wembley Stadium opened in 2007. The statue overlooks Wembley Way down to Wembley Park Station. The bronze statue is 6.1m tall set on a stone plinth.
