Arsenal have officially launched the new home shirt for the 2020/21 season.
Red and white, it features a two-tone chevron design on the front of the shirt, a simple white crew neck collar and an updated ‘Emirates Fly Better’ sponsorship logo.
The official press release says:
“Paying homage to Arsenal’s geometric crest which the club used from 1936–1949, the chevron graphic on the home jersey is inspired by the ‘A’ within. It is also a nod to the layout of the tiling on the floors of the East Stand’s famous marble halls – the historical home of Arsenal before its 2006 move to the Emirates Stadium.
“The back-neck sign off also references the original crest, with the chevrons facing both East and West, representing the past and present of the club’s iconic Cannon emblem. A dark shade of red is used throughout the kit to celebrate the club’s heritage, something which is synonymous with Arsenal and rooted in its DNA.”
The Gunners will wear the new kit in the final league game of the season against Watford on 26 July, and also in the FA Cup final against Chelsea on August 1st.
The kit is available to purchase from today at the adidas online shop, the Arsenal FC club and online store, as well as selected adidas stores, retailers and fashion stores.
The raspberry ripple/bloodshot eyes away and navy third shirts are set to launch in the coming six weeks.
