Adidas makes no mistake with the red body and white sleeves, the traditional setup of a Gunners home shirt, for the 2022/23 season. The German brand even enhances the look with a sleek polo collar and the template shoulder stripes in white. But the most striking feature is the lightning pattern design that runs parallel with the edge of the collar. A small but eye-catching detail, the collar visuals bring back some vibes from the ’90s. Arsenal will debut its new home kit in the team’s final 2021/22 Premier League match against Everton on May 22.
Arsenal recognises the impact of the pandemic on local communities and businesses and is using its new home kit launch to provide support and assistance. Every £5 sourced from direct home shirt sales will be given to ‘The Arsenal Foundation’ to promote grassroots projects and initiatives.
“We’re extremely proud of the work we’ve been doing to bring our community together and support the lives of people in our local area for more than 35 years. People are the heartbeat of our community and the £5 donation from our home shirt sales will provide vital support for the local projects that serve our diverse community in north London so well.”
