Ahead of the last Premier League games, Arsenal Football Club has officially unveiled the new home kits for the 2020-21 season.
The likes of Bukayo Saka, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Kieran Tierney, Vivianne Miedema, Mesut, Ozil, Gabriel Martinelli, Lucas Torreira, Leah Williamson, Daniëlle van de Donk, David Luiz, amongst other top Arsenal players where on the kits during photo sessions in a studio and the Emirate Stadium to show the dexterity work is done to the great design.
- Arsenal will wear the new strip on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday against Watford and again in the FA Cup Final against Chelsea on August 1.
- The new home strip was made by Adidas, who took over from previous kit supplier Puma.
- The new design is a homage to the club’s geometric crest used from 1936 to 1949.
- Supporters can get their hands on it from July 23.
“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,” an official statement from Arsenal reads.
