|Arsenal Football Club (also known as Arsenal,
The Arsenal or The Gunners) are an English professional football
club based in north London. They play in the FA Premier League and are one of
the most successful clubs in England. Arsenal have won thirteen First Division
and Premier League titles, and the FA Cup ten times, although the team have yet
to achieve similar success in the UEFA Champions League.
Arsenal were founded
in south-east London in 1886, but moved to their current home ground, the
Arsenal Stadium, Highbury, in 1913. In August 2006 the club will move to the new
60,000-seat Emirates Stadium in nearby Ashburton Grove. Arsenal enjoy a fierce
rivalry with Tottenham Hotspur, from nearby Tottenham, whom they play in the
North London derby.
