Arsenal is the most successful club in FA Cup history, lifting its 13th title in 2017. Under chief executive Ivan Gazidis, 54, sales also hit a record £417m, driven primarily by an increase in broadcasting revenue and participation in the Champions League. Long-standing manager Arsène Wenger left the club in May after 22 years, making way for Unai Emery. In August it was announced that owner Stan Kroenke would buy Alisher Usmanov’s 30% stake for £550m.
