    Microsoft signs as Wembley backer

    Bill Gates and software giant Microsoft have signed to become first "Founding Partner" of the new Wembley stadium, in a five-year deal worth at least £5m. Officials at English football's new showpiece stadium will work with the US firm for one year of construction and for four years after completion.

    Wembley is due to open in 2006, when it is expected to stage the FA Cup final.

    Microsoft technology will be used in the stadium, and the firm will get use of the pitch for 90 minutes a year.
