“Victory Grows Through Harmony.” With 4 different Tour options, you can go behind-the-scenes and tour the home of Arsenal Football Club, The Emirates Stadium. Founded in 1886, Arsenal has a varied history from their time at Woolwich, Highbury and Emirates Stadium. The newly refurbished museum offers visitors the chance to take in several exciting exhibits including the entry into the new-look Arsenal Museum and Tour, with many items being donated by former players such as, Jens Lehmann’s goalkeeper gloves that he wore for every league match of the unbeaten Invincibles season in 2003/4, Michael Thomas’ boots from Anfield ’89, Charlie George’s FA Final Cup shirt from 1971 and a selection of iconic shirts including those worn by Alex James in 1936 FA Cup Final and the 2015 FA Cup Final shirt signed by the winning squad. Our sport oriented APTG blue badge guides will take you on an immaculate journey of Emirates Stadium today.
The Emirates Stadium is the Arsenal FC’s home in Holloway, London. It was known as Ashburton Grove before its sponsorship and Arsenal Stadium for UEFA competitions. Emirates Stadium is the 4th largest football stadium after Wembley, Old Trafford, and Tottenham Hotspur with the capacity of 60,704. Arsenal proposed a move to a new stadium in 1997 right after the Islington Council denied planning permission to extend its stadium in Highbury. In 2000, the club bought an industrial and waste disposal site at Ashburton Grove after exploring numerous options including the purchase from Wembley Stadium. One year later, the Board was approved for the building of a stadium on the site, described by Arsène Wenger as "the largest decisions in the history of Arsenal," since Herbert Chapman was elected by its Board. Later, Emirates was announced as the stadium's main sponsor. In 2006, the entire stadium project was completed at a value of 390 million Pound. The old stadium was reconstructed as the apartment complex Highbury Square. To order to preserve Arsenal's tradition and culture, the stadium has undergone an "Arsenalization" phase since 2009. Like Wembley, International festivals and concerts have been held in the stadium as well. In this tour, visitors can see a collection of shirts, medals and trophies from former Arsenal captain Joe Mercer and the shield commemorating the club’s hat-trick of League Championships from 1933-1935. You will be able to explore behind the scenes at Arsenal Football Club and let a host of Arsenal stars share their match-day experiences with you on a self-guided audio tour of Emirates Stadium, take your place in the changing room, walk down the tunnel and imagine the roar of 60,000 fans. Two newly opened areas for the tour route are Unai Emery's Office – explore where the manager prepares prior to the game, and the Physio Room – see where the players receive their pre-match massages and are strapped before each game. You have four different options here in this stadium.
