Arsenal Stadium
  As the sign over the entrance to the North Bank proudly announces 'Welcome to Highbury - the Home of Football'.

Arsenal played their first competitive game at Highbury against Leicester Fosse on 6th September 1913, winning 2-1. Ever since that day, Highbury, or as it is officially called the 'Arsenal Stadium' has been the home of the Gunners.

Although Highbury's capacity now stands at 38,500, on 9th March 1935, 73,295 fans attended a 0-0 draw with Sunderland. This still stands as Arsenal's record attendance at Highbury to this day.
