Arsenal are based in North London and, according to statistics, they are the second most supported club in the UK. They are the ninth richest club in the world.
Founded in 1886, as a works team for the Woolwich Arsenal munitions factory in South-East London, they relocated north of the River Thames in 1913. Since 1919, they have been the only club in England never to be relegated from the First Division Premier League.
They did not win their first trophy until 1930 under legendary manager Herbert Chapman, but went on to be the dominant force in English football in the pre-war era, winning the league five times and the FA Cup.
A period in the doldrums followed before they became only the second club in the post-war era to achieve a League and Cup double, a feat which they later went on to emulate on two further occasions under manager Arsène Wenger, who was in charge of the club for 22 years until he stepped down in May 2018.
In the 2003-2004 “Invincibles” season, Arsenal became the only club in Premier League history to go through the entire league campaign, home and away, unbeaten. This record stands to this day.
Arsenal have won the FA Cup more times (13) than any other club. They also have won 13 First Division/League titles and the League Cup twice. In addition they won the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1970, and the European Cup Winners Cup in 1994.
Their home is the Emirates Stadium in London Borough of Islington, managed by Spaniard Unai Emery. They are the only club in the world to have a tube station named after them.
