Arsenal’s 2020/21 adidas home shirt – first leaked pictures

46

The first pictures of Arsenal’s adidas-made home shirt for the 2020/21 season have been leaked by Footy Headlines.

Here are the main details:

  • Red and white (phew)
  • Simple white crew neck collar
  • Red and maroon piping on the sleeve cuff
  • Adidas three stripes down the side of the body
  • Updated Emirates ‘Fly Better’ logo
  • Horizontal chevron pattern gives the red body a two-tone effect
  • Cannon motif housed in a snazzy art deco hexagon features on the back of the collar

It doesn’t quite have the retro ‘wow’ factor of the current shirt, but it looks very tidy indeed.

The front…
The back…

Our away kit for next season, whenever that is, is due to be ‘cloud white’ and maroon while the third shirt is apparently blue and orange. Lots of training gear has already been leaked, more details here.

Thoughts on the home kit?

Excellent. Can’t argue with it. Not the most classic kit ever, but certainly a nice shake up. Thank goodness we’re not with Puma.

Dylan Amey

I like it, got a touch of retro about it. good job

Pkub

Not great, not terrible

Jame

Came here to say this

Julian Pan

3.6 roentgen?

‘FLY BETTER’ looks terrible. And, as much as I’m
up for fetishizing the retro look, the
chevron motif misses the mark in my opinion.

Giroulski

The “Fly Better” is terrible. We shouldn’t be using slogans along with logos.

Zenithreptile

Fly Nowhere???

goonero

Yeah the patterning ruins the kit, looks more like a training kit than a match jersey. it’d look clean and crisp kit like the 10/11 kit.

James

It’d look better with saka and auba signing deals wearing it

Torterrier

Better than the Puma kits, but nowhere close to the style of this season’s kit.

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

Pretty simple kit, I like it. Reminds me of the 10/11 kit and Tomas Rosicky.

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

After looking at it again I’m seeing Chamakh, which isn’t so good

Maul Person

I like… last year’s bruised banana redux, the retro centenary shirt and this and I’m sorted for a while.

Maul Person

Now we just need… a new season!

LEFT08

Finally a nice white collar! This is very nice overall, great combination of retro and modern. Very Arsenal, very adidas. Fly Better can f***off

Sean

There are technically 6 six separate fonts on that shirt. That’s far too many and makes it visually jarring in my opinion. The prime culprit being Fly Better.

Danny

Agreed, completely

“Fly better” is on a different plane, for one thing

Bad choice, worse slogan

Punter

Won’t it be cool if they made these kits without the addidas, Emirates and visit Rwanda logos. Just the Arsenal logo. I will buy one every season.

Tankard Gooner

Yep. That way we wouldn’t be able to afford even the groundskeepers.

BidOnLard

What do you mean “next season”? And thay “fly” sounds like sciencenfiction now.

James

Be nice with the tree stripes on the shoulders, nice kit though

Bob Le Dreamy

I know that we as a club cannot be overly picky when it comes to finances, given our self sustaining model ( a k a the Kroenke Trust), but the decision to sell an airline through our shirts and stadium feels so off in this day and age…

Brian Ssemakula

The Fly better, could get same font as Emirates and then a much small font size, its causing alot of disharmony on that front

Oscandwarf

Blue and…. orange?

A tiny piece of me just died.

DaDude

Yeah, I must admit that I lack the fantasy to imagine how that could look good in any way or form, so I am intrigued to see it.

db10s

Nice. Nothing overly creative.

But what’s up with our cannon on the back of the neck? A simple cannon would suffice or that old “A” arsenal logo thing. Not both together…

Scott P

I actually wouldn’t mind it if the cannon were a little smaller or the hexagon a little larger. The way it is now, they both look crammed together and not as cool.

Sir Chips Keswick’s Comb-over

My initial thought was ‘what the hell is that?!’ It might grow on me, but certainly nowhere near as nice as this season’s kits

Colette Fleming

Looking amazing I love that ….

Barack Aubameyang

Its not terrible. I mean, have we seen Man U leaked kits? Haha

Public Elneny

I hope they’re paying us extra for slapping a slogan on as well as their logo

Not so bad otherwise

DaDude

I agree, that just looks crappy. I normally don’t mind sponsors and whenever I read Sega or Dreamcast on my old shirts, I remember that console fondly. Also that I chose a JVC TV for my granny, because they were the Arsenal sponsors. But this font combination … good lord, I think I am going blind. Otherwise the shirt is really nice.
Anyway, really funny that we are promoting two things that are hardly possible at the moment, flying Emirates and visiting Rwanda.

Highbury

I feel like someone made a nice kit, then when it was presented to the ‘boss’ the reaction was “it needs something to make it pop!” and so they added that montrosity of a ‘chevron pattern’.

Lukwago

Let’s hope it will bring winning blessings in our team

Idrissa Mawe

Not that good but ts alright..

Nh

Looks like airport carpet. Shite

Mentalista

It looks outdated already.

arsepedant

I like pretty much everything about it, except the size and font of the slogan – too big and too 80s.

Ks24

Looks a bit embarrasing, like a training kit. I liked Puma much more.

But hey, it could be Auba’s style!

Houston Gunner

Messi would look good in that

Rose- Heather

It’s OK. basically this years, but with a round collar and weird chevrons.
I’m intruiged by the away kit, sounds like it could look very very retro, positively antique, maybe they saw the English game on Netflix.

I assume the GK kit will end up being generic like this season. I saw that neon green one on so many other keepers.

Shame adidas can’t do a well fitted womens shirt.

Sebastien Squillaci

Cool, they went with red this time!

RCB13

Is someone at Adidas having a laugh? This is almost worse than this season’s home kit and that’s saying something. Sorry Adidas, but the kit designs are far from innovative and are just plain boring. In my opinion, bring back Puma over this any day.

Kentish Gooner

Ah not a bad shirt, think I might…FLY BETTER? *Puts £80 back in wallet*
