Arsenal’s pink third away kit for the 2022/23 season is now available to buy via Arsenal and Adidas outlets.
It’s the first time in the club’s history that outfield players will wear the colour and also a new direction for Adidas who to this point have supplied blue third shirts three seasons in a row.
There is a nod to tradition with the inclusion of an ermine motif that older supporters will recognise from the Victoria Concordia Crescit club logo of the nineties and early noughties.
The Adidas stripes on the shoulders are a dark blue, as is the collar which also features light blue piping. The club crest, Adidas logo and sponsor logos appear to be all black.
The shorts are navy blue and the socks are pink with a navy trim.
The marketing spiel reads: “Taking cues from the Club’s late 20th century crest, a tonal all-over ermine print blends over a light pink body for a nostalgic, yet fresh take on on-pitch performance.”
The fan replicas for men and women will set you back £70, the long-sleeve is £75 and the authentic version is £100.
It’s expected that Arsenal will debut the shirt against Sevilla in tomorrow’s Emirates Cup friendly.
UPDATE – the club have confirmed that its first outing will be the opening game of the new Premier League season versus Crystal Palace.
