They decided to call themselves Royal Arsenal and unwittingly started a chain of events that would touch the lives of millions of people worldwide. This is the 'warts and all' story of a football club that has seen some incredible highs and lows and been at the vanguard of innovation throughout its history.

In 1913 Woolwich Arsenal Football Club moved north to Highbury, dropping Woolwich from its name. Their chairman Henry Norris took a 20 year lease on part of the grounds of St Johnís Hall for £20,000. The new Arsenal Stadium (also called Highbury) was built there. The club prospered and by 1925 had purchased the freehold. In 2006 the club moved to a new stadium on the west side of Drayton Park in Holloway and the old ground and some of its stands will be converted to residential dwellings.
