If you’re a regular reader of this website, or a listener to the Arsecast, you’ll be well aware by now that our next kit manufacturers are Adidas.
The current deal with Puma runs out at the end of this season, and given the last set of kits they’ve foisted upon us nobody is going to shed too many tears about that.
So while the Adidas link-up has been well known for a while, it hasn’t been made official … until now.
The club have just announced it via Twitter:

There’s no more detail at the moment, but it is likely to be a more lucrative deal than the one signed with Puma in 2013, hopefully boosting the transfer coffers as we look to build a squad that can challenge for the title.
So, prepare yourself for a bruised banana away kit in 2019-20, or at least a return to traditional yellow and blue, as Adidas give the people what they want.
