Arsenal Football Club were founded in Woolwich in 1886 by workers at the Arsenal - the club were initially known as Dial Square, then Royal Arsenal and then became Woolwich Arsenal in 1891. They moved to Arsenal Stadium, Highbury in north London in 1913, and dropped the Woolwich prefix the following year.
