About Arsenal FC
Arsenal Football Club is a professional club based in Islington, London. They currently play in the Premier League.
The club is one of the most successful in England, having won multiple league titles, FA Cups and League Cups in its history.
The club was founded in 1886. It currently plays its football at the Emirates Stadium, which has a capacity of 60,000. The stadium replaced Highbury, the club’s famed ground which had been used since 1913.
Arsenal has a rich history of talented players and managers. They had a period of great success in the late 80s and early 90s, winning the League Cup in 1987 and the league title in both the 88-89 and 90-91 seasons.
Arsene Wenger’s reign began in 1996 and saw the club’s football philosophy become revolutionised, with players such as Patrick Viera and Thierry Henry essential to their success. Under Wenger, they won the FA Cup in both 2003 and 2005, as well as winning the league while going unbeaten during the 2003-04 season. This achievement saw the side subsequently named ‘The Invincibles’, with that crop of players admired by football fans all across England.
Following Wenger’s departure in 2018, the club finished fifth in the Premier League under Unai Emery, who was sacked the following season after a run of poor games. The club is currently managed by former player Mikel Arterta, who previously worked as assistant manager at Manchester City.
