Arsenal FC History

Arsenal has an incredible history dating back to 1886 when a group of workers from Woolwich Arsenal Armament Factory decided to form a football team. The squad called themselves Dial Square, after the sundial atop the entrance to the factory. The iconic red kit we know today manifested in 1895, two years before the team became professional. Fred Beardsley, Bill Parr and Charlie Bates left Nottingham Forest to join Dial Square, bringing their old red kit with them. The club decided that the most inexpensive way to kit out the whole team was to match their outfit to the same colour as the ex-Forest players. Throughout the years, the bright red kit has changed to become the iconic red kit, known today. And top sports brands, such as Puma and Adidas, have even designed the professional kits.

The team also developed and grew, replacing managers and players with fresh members. The newly refurbished Emirates Stadium Museum details this progression through a series of exciting exhibitions. View Arsenal’s history from the teams’ time at Woolwich through to the move to Highbury and now the Emirates Stadium.

Museum

Many of the items on display were kindly donated by former players who hold a special place in Arsenal’s history. Highlights include Jens Lehmann’s goalkeeper gloves that he wore for every league match of the unbeaten Invincibles season in 2003/4, Michael Thomas’ boots from Anfield ’89 and Charlie George’s FA Final Cup shirt from 1971. Charlie George attended the re-opening and currently leads Legends Tours of Emirates Stadium alongside Perry Groves and Nigel Winterburn.

The museum also features two impressive video theatres and twenty primary displays based on Arsenal’s proud history, from its formation in 1886 to the present day. These displays include a selection of iconic shirts including those worn by Alex James in 1936 FA Cup Final and the 2015 FA Cup Final shirt signed by the winning squad. Visitors can also see a collection of shirts, medals and trophies from former Arsenal captain Joe Mercer and the shield commemorating the club’s hat-trick of League Championships from 1933-1935.

"My boyfriend and I purchased the London Pass ahead of time to use when we got to London and it was wonderful for public transport, avoiding cues and accessing all the sites without having to fawk out cash or paying per site. This also allowed us to see much more than we normally would have. Because you buy the card at a flat rate you are saving money too! It makes travelling around London a pleasure as a tourist."
