Arsenal and kit partner PUMA have unveiled the Gunners’ 2015/16 home kit through a live show at Emirates Stadium.
Club legend Thierry Henry and world-renowned DJ Gilles Peterson kick-started the event on Monday evening, leading more than 1,000 fans in a series of Arsenal chants about the North Bank and Clock End.
The chants from the Arsenal fans were met with an intense red light show, which led to the reveal of first-team players Hector Bellerin, Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky, Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck showcasing Arsenal’s new home kit for next season.
The new home shirt colour stays true to the Gunners’ classic red-and-white strip that first appeared in 1933. The main body is red with bold stripes running horizontally and white sleeves. The shirt features a grandad collar and gold piping trim around the collar edge.
Speaking about the new kit, Cazorla said: “Our fans are incredible and play a really big role in our performance and motivation. Being at the Emirates this evening and seeing so many of them chanting and supporting us was really great. There was so much passion in the crowd, it reminds us how lucky we are to have these supporters. The kit has a lovely design, classic like an Arsenal kit should be with some very nice design features.”
Powered by Fans is PUMA’s 2015/16 Arsenal campaign and represents the importance of the supporters to the club and players. The fans play a major role in the performance of the team and the campaign, starting with the kit launch, represents this energy and how it can motivate and energise the players.
