Arsenal are a club with a rich pedigree, and have been associated with Islington for the majority of their history. Until 2006 they played at the Highbury Stadium, where they won numerous trophies and even went a season unbeaten. When they outgrew the stadium they had called home since 1913, though, they were keen to stay in North London. So they built an incredible new stadium in nearby Holloway, and the rest is history! Arsenal moved to The Emirates Stadium at the beginning of the 2006-07 season, and their arrival totally transformed the area. As for Highbury? Well, it became a luxury apartment complex!
