It’s hard to believe a time when Arsene Wenger wasn’t winning the trophies with Arsenal but there was – we were winning silverware back in 1889 – 21 years before Chelsea were even founded.

Let’s take a look at just how many trophies Arsenal have won throughout their 130-year history.

  • Kent Senior Cup – 1889–90 (1)
  • London Charity Cup – 1889–90 (1)
  • London Challenge Cup – 1921–22, 1923–24, 1930–31, 1933–34, 1935–36, 1953–54, 1954–55, 1957–58, 1961–62, 1962–63, 1969–70 (11)
  • London Senior Cup – 1890–91 (1)
  • Inter-Cities Fairs Cup – 1969–70 (1)
  • UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup – 1993–94 (1)
  • FA Community Shield – 1930, 1931, 1933, 1934, 1938, 1948, 1953, 1991, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2014, 2015 (14)
  • FA Cup – 1929–30, 1935–36, 1949–50, 1970–71, 1978–79, 1992–93, 1997–98, 2001–02, 2002–03, 2004–05, 2013–14, 2014–15 (12)
  • First Division (until 1992) and Premier League – 1930–31, 1932–33, 1933–34, 1934–35, 1937–38, 1947–48, 1952–53, 1970–71, 1988–89, 1990–91, 1997–98, 2001–02, 2003–04 (13)
  • League Cup – 1986–87, 1992–93 (2)
  • Mercantile Credit Centenary Trophy –  1988–89 (1)
  • Southern Professional Floodlit Cup – 1958-59 (1)

Adding all these together, Arsenal have won 59.

However, if you want to just count the ‘real trophies’ as many people do, i.e. the League Cup, Premier League/First Division and FA Cup, we’ve won 27.

Of course, depending on which cups, particularly the ones won in the 1800s and early 1900s, you may want to amend these numbers.

However, 59 sounds pretty good to me.

Not bad for a club that has an empty trophy cabinet, eh?
