Arsenal have revealed the new home strip for the 2023/24 season.
It is the fifth home design unveiled by adidas since they took over from Puma in 2019 and the first to incorporate a monochrome gold crest.
Gold is also used for the new adidas logo, the brand’s famous three stripes, the Visit Rwanda logo on the left sleeve and an AFC lightning motif on the neck. The logo for our main sponsor Emirates remains white, as is the crew neck collar.
A ‘zap’ lightning pattern is used on the ‘Better Scarlet’ red body in a tribute to the Nike shirts worn from 1994-96.
On the player issue ‘authentic’ shirt, there’s also a nod to the achievement of Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles on the 20th anniversary of their unmatched title success; a chronological match-by-match breakdown of their wins and draws is pressed onto the white piping along the side of the shirt.

The blurb from adidas reads: “They say lightning never strikes twice. And 20 years on, the Gunners remain the only club to finish an English top-flight soccer season undefeated. This adidas Arsenal jersey celebrates a unique anniversary with lightning bolts and gold details. Created for supporters, it’ll keep you comfortable with moisture-wicking AEROREADY. A woven badge completes the eye-catching look.”
Arsenal have confirmed that Arsenal Women will wear the shirt for the first time on Saturday before Mikel Arteta’s players step out in the new garb on Sunday against Wolves.
