New Arsenal adidas home kit for 2020/21 season revealed

Thursday, 23 July 2020


If there was a table for best kits, Arsenal would be hands down Premier League champions this season.

The north London club has unveiled what their home jersey for next season will look like, and fans will love it.

The adidas top pays homage to the club’s 1930s/40s heritage with reference to the club’s prolific ‘Art Deco’ period. They won six league titles and three FA Cups from 1930-50.

Arsenal used a geometric crest between 1936-49 and the chevron graphic on the home jersey is inspired by the “A” within.

adidas also say the shirt is 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 the 2006 move from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium.

Meanwhile, 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 cannon emblem.

The shade of red is darker than usual as a nod to the club’s heritage.

Fans will get first sight of the new kit for Arsenal’s final Premier League match of the season against Watford on Sunday.

Mikel Arteta’s side will also wear it when they face Chelsea in the FA Cup final on August 1 as Arsenal seek their 14th Cup crown.

The fact that star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang modelled the jersey will encourage Arsenal fans as it suggests he could be at the club next season despite rumours linking him with a move away.

Mesut Ozil, who hasn’t featured for the Gunners since the season restarted, was also part of the photo shoot.
