First Football Histories

Our First Football Histories series of books is available in hard copy and digital formats – featuring concise histories of football clubs, competitions and countries.

The books aim to tell the key football stories, including brief geographies of the places concerned, as well as major, global historical events that were taking place at the same time.

Easily-affordable, these books make ideal introductions to football history for new football fans and older fans wanting to quickly check their facts. They are independent, unofficial football histories and are not endorsed, authorised, licensed or in any other way approved by any club or other third-party.

These books are included in the Reference Collection at the National Football Museum in Manchester.

 

The Arsenal FC story

The Arsenal FC story is the first in the First Football Histories series of books from The Football Ground.

This book is not intended to be a comprehensive history of Arsenal FC from training ground to trophy cabinet. It is written as a story for the fans – a narrative of characters, scenes and events that provides an introduction to some key moments in the club’s history; from their humble origins in Woolwich as ‘Dial Square’ in 1886 to its status as one of the English Premier League's leading football clubs.

With their pioneering approach being coupled to the insight and imagination of a few key individuals along the way, the club has made the long journey from an armaments factory in South-East London to the entertaining of millions of football fans worldwide: a truly global brand.

Aimed at teenage readers and above, it is hoped that, as the flow of history weaves its way in and out of times and places, readers will step off at different points and explore more about football clubs, competitions, countries and players for themselves - as well as the general social and political history providing the backdrop to each tale.

This book is included in the Reference Collection at the National Football Museum in Manchester.

The Chelsea FC story

The Chelsea FC story is the second in the First Football Histories series of books from The Football Ground.

It is not intended to be a comprehensive history of Chelsea FC from training ground to the trophy cabinet. It is written as a story for the fans – a narrative of characters, scenes and events that provide an introduction to some key moments in the club’s history; from its foundation in England’s ‘Edwardian’ era through to the modern day, and a country contemplating its departure from Europe.

Ironically, it is in Europe where many of the most compelling Chelsea stories and successes can be described, from being the only British club to have won the European Cup Winners’ Cup twice and the only team from London club to lift the Champions League trophy. Chelsea’s European pedigree stretches back to the very first European Cup competition more than 60 years ago when they were the original British team to be invited to take part.

Aimed at teenage readers and above, it is hoped that, as the flow of history weaves its way in and out of times and places, readers will step off at different points and explore more about football clubs, competitions, countries and players for themselves - as well as the general social and political history providing the backdrop to each tale.

This book is included in the Reference Collection at the National Football Museum in Manchester.
