Arsenal’s new 2013/14 away kit has officially gone on sale in all Club retail outlets.
The new strip, which uses the traditional Arsenal colours of yellow and blue in a contemporary design, was launched earlier in the month with a spectacular event at Emirates Stadium. It revealed a giant banner featuring Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere all sporting the new Nike design over the stadium core located at the corner of the Clock End and West Stand.
The kit, which the Gunners will wear on the road this season, was debuted for the first time on the recent Asia Tour and proved to be a lucky omen as the team secured wins over the Indonesia Dream Team, Vietnam and Urawa Reds while donning the yellow and blue colours.
Supporters at the Emirates Cup will also have a rare opportunity to see the first team wearing the kit at Emirates Stadium, when the Gunners take on Napoli on Saturday afternoon.
As well as providing the team with a striking new look, the kit also showcases Nike’s inherent belief in style, craft and strong aesthetics, while aiding the performance of players with a range of key technological features. Each kit (shirt and shorts) is made using up to 13 recycled plastic water bottles, while the fabric is integrated with Nike Dri-FIT technology to draw sweat away from the body and keep players cool and dry.
The Arsenal 2013/14 away kit is available to purchase now in The Armoury, The Arsenal at Highbury House, Finsbury Park and Brent Cross Shopping Centre stores or at www.arsenaldirect.com, with shirts priced at £50 for adults and £40 for juniors.Copyright 2013 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
