Arsenal news

Arsenal - news, history of football club.

Arsenal Football Club is one of the most successful English football clubs based in Holloway, London. They have won 13 First Division and Premier League titles and a joint record 11 FA Cups.

Arsenal’s current manager is Arsène Wenger. He has been the manager of Arsenal since 1996, where he has since become the club's longest-serving manager and most successful in terms of major titles won.

Arsenal were founded as Dial Square in 1886 by workers at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, south-east London, and were renamed Royal Arsenal shortly afterwards. In 1893 became the first club from the south of England to join the Football League.

In 1913, new owners, Henry Norris and William Hall, moved the club to the new Arsenal Stadium in Highbury, North London, and ‘renamed’ the club to just Arsenal the following year.

In the 1930s, they won five League Championship titles and two FA Cups. After a lean period in the post-war years they won the League and FA Cup Double, in the 1970–71 season, and in the 1990s and first decade of the 21st century, won two more Doubles and reached the 2006 UEFA Champions League Final.

Since neighbouring Tottenham Hotspur, the two clubs have had a fierce rivalry. Matches between the two are referred to as North London derbies.

In addition, Arsenal and Manchester United developed a strong on-pitch rivalry in the late 1980s, which intensified in recent years when both clubs were competing for the Premier League title.

Arsenal has one of the highest incomes in the world. Forbes's 2014 estimate put Arsenal as the fifth most valuable association football club in the world, valued at more than $1.3 billion.

Arsenal are nicknamed 'The Gunners' because they were formed by a group of cannon makers at the Woolwich Arsenal in 1886. And Arsenal fans often refer to themselves as "Gooners".

Arsenal has the seventh highest average attendance of European football clubs only behind Borussia Dortmund, FC Barcelona,Manchester United, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Schalke.
