Angry Arsenal fans set up breakaway club and plan to compete in non league pyramid

Angry Arsenal fans have set up plans for a breakaway club and hope to compete in the non league pyramid from the 2020/21 season.

They hope to enter their new side, Dial Square FC, into the Combined Counties League and eventually plan to build a stadium in club’s original home of Woolwich.

Gunners supporters have lost their patience after holding many protests at the running of the club under the ownership of Stan Kroenke.

Now they hope to follow in the footsteps and success of AFC Wimbledon and FC United of Manchester.

Arsenal fan Stuart Morgan, who is leading the initiative, told the Athletic: ““The club has lost its identity in so many different ways. This Arsenal team, the club, the set-up, the stadium, is nothing like it was in its heyday.

“It’s so commercialised, I sit in club level. It’s soulless, it’s lifeless, it’s not Arsenal Football Club.

“The reason I wanted to do this project is to go back to beginning, to try and get back to that original Arsenal.

“Our aim is to get to play league football at our own purpose-built stadium in Woolwich within 15-20 years.

“We want to be as close to the old arms factory as possible. This has been done before and we can do it again.”





Dial Square references Arsenal’s original name when the club was founded by the Woolwich munitions workers in 1886. They will play in a burgundy shirt and white socks.

Dial Square have agreed to ground share with Abbey Rangers, who are based in Surrey but hope to move to the original home in Woolwich.
