Is arsenal a place?

No it is not. Arsenal are named for Woolwich Arsenal where the team began life. Woolwich is a place and this is where The Royal Arsenal was based, a place that carried out arms manufacturing for the British Armed forced. Workers at the Arsenal formed a football team initially known as Dial Square after the workshops at the heart of the complex. They renamed to Royal Arsenal, then Woolwich Arsenal. When they moved to Highbury (this is an area of London) they changed their name to just Arsenal F.C. in 1932 Herbert Chapman had the name of the local tube station, Gillespie Road, changed to Arsenal so it is a place in so much as there is a tube with the name however there is no actual area of London called Arsenal.

Arsenal Football Club used to be known as Woolwich Arsenal?

Woolwich Arsenal FC was the name adopted by Royal Arsenal on becoming a professional club. In 1913 Woolwich Arsenal moved to Highbury in North London and kept the old name until April 1914 when they changed to The Arsenal. This name was continued until 1919 when the name was changed to Arsenal - long before Chapman joined the club. Confirmation of these changes can be seen in surviving copies of the programmes issued for the game. The club made no special announcement each time - just change the name on the masthead of the programme. Companies House records concur.
