Arsenal On This Day, 6th March 1956

Another first for a club with a long history of firsts. Herbert Chapman had spoked two decades before of floodlit matches and there had been other experiments using the equipment. This though, was the first league match played under these conditions.

  1. This was just after the first match I ever went to & until seeing this had no idea that league floodlight games at Highbury began as late as this.
    I believe Herbert Chapman was all for floodlights & some experimental games were played in the ’30s.

  2. The first floodlit game that we played in was well before Herbert Chapman’s time!
