Arsenal Football Club
Arsenal is one of the leading clubs in world football with a strong heritage of success, progressive thinking and financial stability.
Arsenal Football Club was founded in 1886 in Woolwich, south London, before moving to Highbury in north London in 1913.
With the Club celebrating its 125th anniversary in the 2011/2012 season, Arsenal has an impressive roll of honour: English League Champions 13 times, FA Cup winners 10 times, League Cup winners twice and European Cup Winners’ Cup (1994) and European Fairs Cup (1970) winners once.
In addition, ‘Arsenal Ladies’ is the most successful English club in women's football.
Arsenal’s Manager since 1996 has been Frenchman Arsène Wenger. Wenger is Arsenal Football Club’s most successful manager and his honours include three League titles, four FA Cups and four Charity/Community Shields, including two League and Cup ‘doubles’ in 1998 and 2002. In addition, Arsenal went unbeaten for the entire 2003/04 Premier League season, an unprecedented achievement in English football.
In 2006, Arsenal embarked on a new chapter in its history with a move from its home of 93 years, Highbury Stadium, to the new state-of-the-art 60,000-seater Emirates Stadium, which is the most technologically advanced and highest grossing football club stadium in the world and will further position Arsenal as one of the world’s leading clubs, both on and off the field.
With approximately 200,000 members, Arsenal boasts the highest paid membership scheme in world football.
