Establishment Some workers of the arms factory, the Royal Arsenal, in Woolwich, South London, founded arsenal FC in 1886. The club was initially known as 'Dial Square’, which referred to a workplace in the weapons factory, but it soon changed the name to ‘Royal Arsenal’. When Royal Arsenal joined the professional Football League in 1891, the name was changed to Woolwich Arsenal. Soon the club was nicknamed 'The Gunners', which was obvious, because Arsenal means an arms factory or armoury. In 1913, the club was forced to move to North London in the district of Highbury because of its poor financial situation. The club had to change its name again, because Woolwich, of course, refers to the district in South London. It has played under the name Arsenal ever since. Performance Arsenal is one of the best performing clubs in England. Since joining the English Football League in 1919, they have never been relegated, making them the longest club playing at the highest level in England. The North London club has been League champion 13 times, the last time being the season 2003-04. It has won the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (1969-70) along with the European Cup Winners Cup (1993-94), the FA Cup 13 times, the FA Community Shield 15 times, the League Cup twice and in 2006 they were runners-up of the UEFA Champions League. However, never in their club history have they managed to win the Champions League. London Derbies Arsenal FC is not the only football club in the London Metropolis. Big clubs like Chelsea, Fulham, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur are also located here and provide great derbies. The most fiercely fought game for ‘The Gunners’ is the North London Derby against their arch-rival, Tottenham Hotspur. Long before the day of the match, all tickets are sold out for this London ‘Clash of the Titans’. For that reason this match is seen by many supporters as one of the most important of the season.
