Arsenal are one of the most successful clubs in England with a massive trophy count. They were founded in October 1886 and currently participates in England’s topmost division i.e., the Premier League.
The club was established by Woolwich munitions workers and were called Dial Square at first. Later they renamed themselves to Woolwich Arsenal and moved to the Highbury, soon after getting relegated. There they became close neighbours of Tottenham Hotspur and thus began the rivalry between the two sides.
They were the first club hailing from the South of England to join The Football League in 1893. The team which was managed by Harry Bradshaw in 1904 reached the First Division after escaping several issues of bankruptcy.
The Gunners have faced relegation only once in their entire history in the year 1913. Now, they hold the record for the second-most top-flight matches won in English football history.
Everything About The Arsenal Trophy Cabinet
The 1930s were one of the most successful decades in the North London outfit’s history when they won seven League Championships and three FA Cups, a FA Cup and two Championships after the war.
In 1970–71, Arsenal won their first domestic Double. From 1989 to 2005, they won five League titles and five FA Cups, including two more Doubles. Their average league position was higher than any other English club in the 20th century.
Herbert Chapman led the club to their first national trophy and also helped introduce the WM formation, shirt numbers and floodlights in their own home ground.
He also implemented the white sleeves and brighter red on Arsenal’s home kit. After Chapman came George Allison and Tom Whittaker, both of whom won plenty of trophies for the club.

Arsenal’s Most Recent Achievements
Arsenal trophies? Arsenal’s most recent trophies? Arsenal have not had much success in the past decade under the management of Arsene Wenger other than winning the three FA Cups. For a club of Arsenal’s size, they should be winning way more trophies.
Now, with Unai Emery taking over from the ‘Professor’, things are expected to change for the better. Arsenal are on route to make their way back into the UEFA Champions League which would give the new manager the financial leverage to sign more quality players.
However, we are here to celebrate and remember some of the club’s victories in the recent past.
FA Cup 2019/20
FA Cup 2016/17
Out of all the Arsenal trophies, this one came as a massive sigh of relief amongst Arsenal fans when they were torn over their very own manager. Wenger’s final period with the Gunners was not the most successful but the former AS Monaco man did deliver silverware when they needed it the most.
FA Cup 2014/15
The 2014/15 campaign was Arsenal’s 95th consecutive one in the top tier of English football. An inconsistent first half of the season ended their hopes of realistically challenging for the league title. They also suffered an embarrassing loss to AS Monaco to get knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the Round of 16.
But Wenger did manage to pull a rabbit out of the bag in the end with this trophy.
FA Cup 2013/14
Arsenal broke a 9-year period of not winning any trophies with this FA Cup win. They overcame Hull City in the finals 3 goals to 2.
