Arsenal plays in the Premier League, the top flight of English football. The club has won 13 league titles (including an undefeated title), a record 14 FA titles.
Arsenal FootballClub is an English professional football club based in Islington, London. The club has won 13 league titles (including an undefeated title), a record 14 FA Cups, two League Cups, 16 FA Community Shields, a European Cup Winners' Cup and an Interurban Fair Cup.
In terms of trophies won, it is the third most successful club in English football. Let's take a look at how many trophies Arsenal has won over its 130-year history. Not bad for a club that supposedly has an empty trophy cabinet, right? For the record, Tottenham has 17, which are reduced to 13 if you eliminate the League Cup. They have only won the league twice.
Chelsea has eight before Roman Abramovich started buying trophies and a total of 24 (19 if you eliminate the League Cups). They won the league six times, but only succeeded once before Abramovich bought the club.

It was also the first time that the BBC paid for the broadcasting rights of a match. Three years earlier, the Gunners disappointingly lost their first final, 1-0 to Cardiff City.
The match gave them a chance to work things out, under the direction of legendary coach Herbert Chapman. Tom Parker captained the team to victory and set Arsenal on the path to the record of 14 FA Cups that he holds today. Arsenal won the 1971 final in dramatic fashion, coming back to beat Liverpool in extra time. The Gunners were trying to complete a league and cup double, after winning the title at White Hart Lane.
However, they had to defeat Liverpool to do so, in front of 100,000 fans. United then recovered it with a goal from Gordon McQueen in the 86th minute and an effort from Sammy McIlroy in the 88th minute. Just when the game seemed headed for extra time, Alan Sunderland scored in the 89th minute to win the cup for Arsenal. The match is now more commonly referred to as the “five-minute final”.
Arsenal's first win in a cup final at the new Wembley involved a 2-0 comeback to end a 9-year trophy drought. With a defeat in the Champions League final and a series of faltering title challenges, the Gunners had been winning nothing year after year, despite having several talented teams. During that time, Arsenal lost both of their games at the new national stadium. Fortunately, the Gunners ended that losing streak by beating Wigan Athletic on penalties.
They would have to go further to end the drought and face the losers of Hull City. Aaron Ramsey won the game in overtime, sparking celebrations that equally expressed joy and relief on the part of the players, the coach and the fans. A few years later, Arsenal returned under completely different circumstances. This time, the Gunners were the losers and faced the Premier League champion and their London rival, Chelsea.
All the experts and experts in the area seemed to think that the Blues would win the game. Instead, Arsenal took a surprising lead through Alexis Sanchez. Chelsea responded in the second half through Diego Costa, but Aaron Ramsey was back there to regain the lead. The real heroes were the Gunners' defense.
Laurent Koscielny was expelled the week before, so Nacho Monreal, Per Mertesacker and Rob Holding had to join an impromptu trio back. The trio did their job admirably, showing struggle and determination to defeat their opponents. Costa needed a detour to finally break his resistance, and yet it wasn't enough. It may not have been the most exciting final in history, but for me it was one of the most satisfying.
At the time, the Gunners had been around for more than 40 years, but they hadn't yet won their first major trophy. However, the club had been getting close in the cup for the past few years. But they still had to go one step further and win the competition, actually write their name in the history books and go one step further as a club. Like today, the Gunners did not participate in the tournament until the third round proper.
Before that, there were two preliminary rounds, four qualifying rounds and, of course, the first two proper rounds, all of which culminated in the addition of 20 teams from lower leagues to the mix. They would be joined by 22 teams from the second division and 22 from the first division. Arsenal tied one of those teams from the second division, Chelsea. The fourth round was a tougher test, in Birmingham City.
Birmingham was one of Arsenal's midtable rivals in the first division at the time, so they were likely to fight more than Chelsea in the first round. He showed this, since Cliff Bastin scored again together with David Jack, but the Gunners drew 2-2, which forced them to repeat the game away from home. Now, in February, Herbert Chapman's team prepared for their fifth round match against the newly promoted Middlesbrough. The Boro had finished at the top of the second division the previous season and were still in the first league in the country.
Arsenal had to travel to the northeast for the game at Ayresome Park, but ended up with another comfortable victory. It was a repeat of the first round, with the same score (2-0) and with the same scorers, Lambert and Bastin. Bastin, in particular, was making a name for himself with goals in every round so far. But against West Ham, which was flying in Upton Park, it was Lambert and Baker who continued to increase their numbers, with two from Jack and one from Alf taking the 3-0 victory.
On paper, this should have been the toughest tie yet, but Arsenal were on a roll and made it to the semifinals with ease. The Gunners tied Hull in the semifinals, which will be played at the neutral venue on Elland Road in Leeds. For the fourth time in six games, the team scored two goals, thanks to David Jack and Cliff Bastin, but ended in a draw. Back then, a tie in an FA Cup semifinal meant a repeat, rather than an overtime, so four days later he went to Villa Park for a rematch.
David Jack scored again in the 1-0 win and sent the club to its second final in four years. On April 26, 1930, Arsenal faced Huddersfield Town in front of 92,488 fans at Wembley. The scorers from the previous rounds, Alf Baker, David Jack, Jack Lambert and Cliff Bastin, were part of the team for the final, but it was the team's creative genius that ended up breaking the deadlock that day. Alex James had been signed by Herbert Chapman at the start of that season, but after a slow start he began to impress fans with his ball control and passing skills.
This time, he became a scorer, playing a double with Bastin before shooting at the net from a distance. He scored again in a short time, as a long pass found Jack Lambert to score a second and secure Arsenal's first victory in the FA Cup and their first major trophy. The Gunners stayed at Wembley celebrating until the public went home, and it was a major turning point in the club's history, considering the successes that occurred in the 1930s. World War II was the suspension of the Football League for seven years, but Arsenal won it again in the second post-war season, 1947-48. During Arsenal's history, the club participated in and won several friendly and pre-season awards.
There have always been Arsenal fans outside of London and, since the advent of satellite television, a fan's attachment to a football club has become less dependent on geography. As one of the most successful teams in the country, Arsenal has often appeared when football is represented in the arts in Great Britain. Arsenal's parent company, Arsenal Holdings plc, operates as an unlisted public limited company, whose ownership is considerably different from that of other football clubs. When Nike replaced Adidas as Arsenal's equipment supplier in 1994, Arsenal's visitor colors were once again changed to bicolored blue shirts and shorts.
Before joining the Football League, Arsenal played briefly at Plumstead Common, then at the Manor Ground in Plumstead, and then spent three years, between 1890 and 1893, at the nearby Invicta Ground. Herbert Chapman, who changed Arsenal's fortunes forever, won the club its first silverware and his legacy led the club to dominate the 1930s; however, Chapman died of pneumonia in 1934, at the age of 55. Thierry Henry scored an incredible 24 goals that year, establishing himself as the league's top scorer throughout the campaign, while Robert Pires won the Football Writers' Association's Footballer of the Year award. Arsenal's fanbase is known as the Gooners, the name deriving from the club's nickname, The Gunners. After joining the Football League in 1893, the club returned to the Manor Ground and installed stands and terraces, going from being just a playing field.
In October 1886, Scotland's David Danskin and fifteen Woolwich teammates formed the Dial Square Football Club, named after a workshop located in the heart of the Royal Arsenal complex. Arsenal won five league titles in the 1930s, but has distributed the rest throughout the club's history, demonstrating a consistent presence near the top of the English top flight. Like all major English football clubs, Arsenal has several national fan clubs, such as the Arsenal Football Supporters' Club, which works closely with the club, and the Arsenal Independent Fans Association, which maintains a more independent line. If victorious, it would be Arsenal's first Premier League title since The Invincibles won in 2004, a monumental achievement for a club that has fallen slightly from its all-time highs.
At the time of their last win in 2004, Arsenal was one of only three clubs to have won the Premier League, along with Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers. .
