Arsenal Football Club

Group  From 1/12/1886 

Categories: Sport / Games

Founded by munitions workers in Woolwich, under the name 'Dial Square'. This was the name of the Royal Arsenal complex where they worked, and also explains the team's nickname of 'The Gunners'. They renamed as 'Royal Arsenal', then 'Woolwich Arsenal' before settling upon their current name in 1914. They played at Highbury Stadium from 1913 until 2006, when they moved into their newly built current home, which was sponsored by and named after the Emirates Airline.
