Arsenal History

Arsenal’s rich history goes back 132 years to October 1886, when workers from the Woolwich factory formed a football team and called themselves Dial Square. Within a span of a year, they had changed their name to Royal Arsenal and participated in their first FA Cup in the year 1889/90.

In 1891, Royal Arsenal became the first football club from London to turn professional. Two years later they renamed themselves to Woolwich Arsenal. In 1913, the club moved to a new stadium in Highbury, North London and in the following year they renamed themselves for the third time, to “The Arsenal”. “The” was slowly removed from official documents and the club finally came to be known as “Arsenal”.
