History

Arsenal was formed by workers of the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich in 1886. Two of the initial founders were former Nottingham Forest players, Fred Beardsley and Morris Bates. Fred Beardsley wrote to his old club for some assistance and received some red jerseys and a ball. Shortly after this the club became known as the Woolwich Reds and weren't officially named Arsenal until 1914.

Arsenal have won the Premiership once in 1998. They have won the league championship on 10 occasions 1931, 1933, 1934, 1935, 1938, 1948, 1953, 1971, 1989, 1991. The Gunners have won the F.A Cup 7 times, 1930, 1936, 1950, 1971, 1979, 1993 and 1998. Their European successes are Fairs Cup (1970) and European Cup Winners Cup (1994).The 1930 Cup Final between Arsenal and Huddersfield Town was the first final where the captains walked out side by side.
