Description

Arsenal Stadium, also known as Highbury, was the home of Arsenal FC from 1913 to 2006. In its final years it had a capacity of 38,500 seats. The first match at Highbury was played on September 30, 1904, against Newcastle United.

The first football match at the stadium was played on September 6, 1913. The tie between Arsenal and Leicester Fosse resulted in a victory for the home team, 6-3. At that time, the stadium consisted of one main stand and a series of terraces.

In 1925, Arsenal purchased the ground and a new grandstand was constructed seven years later. The stand could seat 4,000 people and had standing capacity for 17,000 more.

In 1937, the turnout was at 76,426 and in 1938 it reached a high of 80,492 spectators. Arsenal's record attendance was achieved in 1935 when 73,295 fans viewed the game against Sunderland (0-0). In 1937, the turnout was at 76,426 people, and in 1938 it reached an even higher figure of 80,492 spectators.

One year later, in 1936, the East Stand opened. In 1948 the stadium hosted a few games during the Olympic football tournament.

Only a few minor changes were made to the stadium over the following years, and it wasn't until 1989 that any further significant redevelopments took place.

A few years later, works started to convert Highbury into an all-seater stadium. Part of this conversion consisted of the demolition of the North Bank terraces and construction of a new North Bank stand.

Despite the ground's limited capacity and lack of expansion possibilities, the club started looking into moving away from Highbury in 2004, when construction of the Emirates Stadium started.

The last League match at Highbury was played on May 7th, 2006. The highlight of the 4-2 victory over Wigan was a hattrick scored by Thierry Henry.

Arsenal Stadium was subsequently demolished and the site was redeveloped into residential flats. Just the exterior of the art-deco East Stand and West Stand have remained and were incorporated into the new developments. The pitch has been turned into a communal garden.

I played for the amateur side 64/65 called Plastow Gunners; this was because the Arsenal arsenal didn't have south-east counties sides, so I remember it was us, the reserves, and the first team most of the time. We would train in the indoor pitch back of the clock end, Don Howe would coach us most of the time, along with some of the first team players they really made you feel as if you belonged to a great club.
