Arsenal FC Stadium About

The 'Clock End'

A nod to tradition in the modern setting of the Emirates is the famous 'Clock End.' The giant timepiece was originally a feature at Highbury and has been incorporated into the new stadium's design. It's more than a clock; it's a symbol of the club's past and present, merging memories with the current excitement of matchday. Apparently, there’s also a replica of the clock which travels with the team now, as Mikel Arteta, the current club manager, wanted all away dressing rooms to feel like home.

History of Arsenal FC Stadium In A Nutshell

The tale of Arsenal FC's stadium is one of two distinct eras. It began with Highbury in 1913, an iconic ground boasting an Art Deco façade and 60,000 seats. Highbury stood witness to Arsenal's indomitable era of the 1930s and the 'Invincibles' season in 2003-2004.

As Highbury's constraints emerged, Arsenal FC embarked on a new chapter. The club moved to the Emirates Stadium in 2006, an architectural marvel close by. This advanced stadium, with its 60,000 seating capacity, underscored Arsenal's ambition and financial strength.

Presently, the Emirates Stadium is a hub of premier football and a training ground for tomorrow's stars. It represents Arsenal's promising future. Meanwhile, Highbury's iconic façade, repurposed into residential apartments, serves as a tangible memento of Arsenal's glorious past.
