Football is a pretty big deal here in the UK. Up north, Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City all play within roughly 30 miles of each other. Down in London, however, anyone would be forgiven for thinking it’s just one big footie fest, with no less than six Premier League and 4 Championship clubs calling the capital home!
The origins of the Arsenal Football Club can be traced all the way back to 1886, but throughout its history, the team has gone through many name and location changes. The club only recently moved to the Emirates Stadium in Holloway in 2006, which was the same year the stadium was officially opened to the public. The football stadium has a capacity of 60,704 it is the fourth-largest in England after Wembley Stadium, Old Trafford and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
