Arsenal are one of English football’s most successful clubs. A brilliant end to the 1990s and start to the 2000s led the Gunners to being a global team with fans in all corners of the world. With one of the Premier League’s newest and largest stadiums, Arsenal attracts around 60,000 fans per home game at the Emirates. While Premier League trophies have been difficult to come by in the last 15-plus years, the club have still secured silverware with a clutch of FA Cups.
The Gunners have a diehard supporter base known affectionately as Gooners. They may be a difficult fanbase to please due to years of success on the pitch, but Arsenal are always considered contenders for silverware when the new football season kicks off.
Arsenal were formed in 1886 when a group of workers from the Woolwich Arsenal Armament Factory formed a football team. The team’s original name was Dial Square which was a reference to the sundial at the top of the entrance to the munitions factory. On December 11, 1886, Dial Square played their first football match, winning 6-0 against Eastern Wanderers.
It wasn’t long until the club’s name was shortened to Woolwich Arsenal and the team were fully professional. In 1893, the club become a member of the Football League. Years of instability followed until 1910, Henry Norris bought Woolwich Arsenal and relocated them to North London and Highbury Stadium in 1913. A year later, the Woolwich was dropped from the name, giving the club the iconic ‘Arsenal’ tag going forward.
Manager Herbert Chapman arrived in 1925 and revolutionised the team in all aspects. His work would be replicated by Arsene Wenger in the 1990s. Between 1930 and 1938, Arsenal won five First Division titles. From there, things became sporadic until the arrival of Wenger and another moderisation of the club occurred. While league titles have come and gone 13 different times, Arsenal hold the record for most FA Cup wins with 14. It is a trophy the Gunners have dominated over their history.
Bet on Arsenal
Leading sportsbooks offer a variety of betting markets on Arsenal each week. The long football season provides bettors the chance to wager on Arsenal in multiple ways. Individuals can bet on Arsenal as the outright winner of the Premier League or domestic cup competitions. There is the opportunity to bet on one-off matches, players, correct scores, goals, and more.

With the club potentially sacking their current manager this season, bettors can also wager on which coach will take charge of the Gunners next – or if the current man is fired.
Arsenal are routinely one of the big spenders in the transfer window post-Wenger. The club spent big to bring in top stars include Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe, Thomas Partey, Alexandre Lacazette, and other stars.
However, the varying levels of sucess these players have had has led to a re-bulld in the Gunners' squad with younger players being favoured over big money stars.
Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu have ushered in a new wave of talent int the squad that will allow Arsenal to build and return to their successes of the 90s and 00s.

Herbert Chapman was the first significant manager Arsenal hired. After spells at Northampton Town, Leeds City, and Huddersfield Town, Chapman joined Arsenal in 1925. Chapman led Arsenal to two First Division titles and an FA Cup. The most significant part of his reign was raising the profile of Arsenal.
Decades later, Arsene Wenger joined Arsenal in 1996 and spent over two decades in the manager’s chair. Arsenal were revolutionised by Wenger in all facets from diet to tactics. Wenger led the Gunners to a multitude of titles and brought a clutch of great French players to Highbury and the Emirates. Since Wenger’s departure in 2018, the Gunners have not been able to replicate their previous fortunes.
