An Arsenal match is one that you can hardly miss, not forgetting how many fans flock stadiums just to see their favourite club play. So one would expect the Arsenal FC tickets to be hard to come by, and having a couple in hand is a definite jackpot. And they deserve the glory and fan base because Arsenal has come a long way in history.
The club was formed in 1886 in Woolwich, south east of London. Things didnt start out on a bright note for Arsenal, especially from their geographical location that made them miss out on a lot of matches; nonetheless, they pushed their way to first division, in the Football league, in 1904.
They were later to move to newer grounds in Northern London by 1910. This move was to first place them strategically so that they can win invites to tournaments and also to salvage their financial situation. Arsenal had suffered bankruptcy before and the new management showed new hopes in advancing forward.
Arsenal has always maintained the red shade in all their jersey. The decision to stick to red was to pay homage to Nottingham Forest, who had made a handsome donation in support of the club. One Herbet Chapman was to later add the white sleeves to the jersey then switched to pillar box red to boost up the brightness on the jerseys. When playing away games, the club has relaxed the red look for a while and donned different colours like the yellow shirt and blue short look they had when wining the FA cup in 1971. As new sponsors like Addidas and Nike came to the picture, the jerseys underwent a few more tweaks to what we see today on the pitch.
Throughout their history, Arsenal has shown an impressive track record to a point of surpassing most English football clubs. On their wall of fame are a total of 13 league championships making them the third club to ever make such an achievement in the League Championship. In the FA League alone, Arsenal walked away with over 12 cups and proceeded to scoop 3 more in the FA Doubles. They became the second club to take 3 Doubles in a row - Manchester United being the first.
By 2006, Arsenal became the first club to ever reach the UEFA Championship finals. They also happen to be one of the few clubs privileged to win the FA cup twice. Thierry Henry is the clubs biggest goal scorer, having scored a total of 228 goals from the periods 1999 to 2012.
With a great history of achievement, it is now evident why the Arsenal FC tickets would be quite hard to come by. Fans gather to watch one of the biggest football clubs in English League history thrash their opponents.
