Welcome to The Arsenal History blog.
In the summer of 1886 the foundations were laid for a football team that we know today as The Arsenal*.
Such is the prominence of the club that many stories have been told over the last 127 years. However, we have discovered that not all of them have been correctly recorded. What we aim to do is to clarify these stories, offering contemporary proof. We will also be publishing articles about The Arsenal that, as far as we are aware, have never been told before.
* Yes “The” Arsenal. we’ll explain when and why the club changed its name.
