New stadium effect

Arsenal needed a new stadium for many years. Whilst Highbury was a fantastic historic stadium, the Gunners sold out every week and had a season ticket waiting list of thousands. With part of Highbury Grade II listed, expansion was out of the question. Eventually the club moved into nearby Ashburton Grove, known as the Emirates Stadium in a lucrative deal with the Dubai-based airline.

Whilst the move to the Emirates hasn't resulted in any improvement in league position (Arsenal went from being a top 4 club to still being a top 4 club), the average attendance for home matches has increased more than 50% - from 38,025 up to 60,014. One thing that the Emirates hasn't delivered is league titles though - Arsenal won the Premier League 3 times in Highbury's last 10 years, but didn't finish higher than 2nd in the first 10 years at the Emirates.
