"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

The club was founded in 1886 and joined the Football League proper in 1893. Honours include 13 league titles, 10 FA Cups, 2 League Cups and a European Cup Winner's Cup. Company shares are traded on the PLUS Markets stock exchange (AFC). The club's new stadium at Ashburton Grove (opened for season 2006/07 and called the Emirates Stadium) doubled previous attendance capacity to 60,355 so there was a significant match-day revenue boost from this point forward.
