Arsenal Football Club
Nickname: The Gunners (Gooners).
Formed as Dial Square in 1886, by workers at the Royal Arsenal in
Woolwich, the club soon became known as Royal Arsenal and later renamed to Woolwich
Arsenal, in 1893.
After Arsenal moved to Highbury, in North London, they dropped
'Woolwich' from their name.
