Retro Arsenal F.C. Shirts

Arsenal Football Club is a professional football club based in North London, England. The club was founded in 1886 as Dial Square before changing its name to Royal Arsenal a year later. It was not until 1891 that the club adopted the name Arsenal.

In 1913, Arsenal moved from their original stadium in South East London to Highbury, which remained their home for over 90 years. In 1919, Arsenal became the first team from the South of England to be elected to the First Division of the Football League.

Under the guidance of legendary manager Herbert Chapman, Arsenal won their first major trophies in the 1930s. Chapman led Arsenal to their first league title in 1931 and went on to win two more titles and an FA Cup before his sudden death in 1934.

After World War II, Arsenal experienced a relatively lean period, with their next major trophy coming in 1950 when they won the FA Cup. However, in the mid-1960s, under the management of Bertie Mee, Arsenal began to compete at the highest level again. In 1970, they won their first European trophy, the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (now known as the UEFA Europa League).

The 1980s and early 1990s saw Arsenal enjoy considerable success under the management of George Graham. They won two league titles, two League Cups, an FA Cup, and the European Cup Winners’ Cup. Graham was succeeded by Arsène Wenger in 1996, who revolutionized the club with his innovative training methods and tactics.

Under Wenger, Arsenal won three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups, and reached the final of the UEFA Champions League in 2006. Wenger stepped down as manager in 2018, and was succeeded by Unai Emery and later Mikel Arteta.

Today, Arsenal is one of the most successful clubs in English football, with 13 league titles, 14 FA Cups, and two European trophies to their name. The club plays their home games at the Emirates Stadium, which has been their home since 2006.
