Arsenal Women Football Club in brief

The women's section of Arsenal was founded in 1987 by Vic Akers, a well-known figure in the Arsenal men's team, as he was in charge of equipment. Unfortunately, the context at the time was not conducive to the development of women's football in England, and the team took part in several competitions but had to wait until 2002 to be recognized as a professional. After that, the club quickly established itself as a leader in the English women's football league.

The 2006-07 season remains to this day a special year for the Arsenal team, with victories in every competition and above all the UEFA Women's Champions League title, a historic first for an English club.

Since 2011, the team has been playing in the elite of English women's football, the FA Super League.

Arsenal's only Champions League win in the 2006-07 season came in the final against Swedish club Umea IK.
