This year, the World Cup Championship will experience significant changes since the tournament has never been held in winter before. The reason is that it will be held in Qatar, and it’s impossible to conduct matches due to extremely hot weather. Due to this, Arsenal also had to implement some changes to its season.
Numerous championships await us this year, and they will be even more spectacular due to the breaks caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. And, of course, Arsenal is one of the best teams whose performance can boast of numerous victories. Founded in October 1886, it became the champion of England 13 times and won the FA Cup 14 times, making it one of the most recognizable English clubs. Both football fans and betting UK lovers keep a close eye on all events not to miss anything.
