Alongside adidas, we have released a new limited edition travel range celebrating our historic link with the French icons who contributed to our unprecedented period of success in the late 1990s and early 2000s, culminating in the unrivalled Invincibles season of 2003/2004.
The range includes a hoodie, tracks pants, track top, tee and stadium parka, which all carry tricolour adidas three stripes and gold branding. It will be worn by our men’s team when they travel to Premier League games, starting with the trip to Merseyside when we face Everton on February 4.
This summer marks 20 years since the start of our Invincibles season, when we went an entire Premier League campaign without defeat. It is a feat which is yet to be matched in the men’s game, and the range celebrates the influential personalities who helped bring silverware to north London.
Jeremie Aliadiere, who played in the Invincibles season and remains firmly part of the Arsenal family today, said: “During that period in the late 1990s and early 2000s it was great to be part of the team. We had a lot of players from France, or French-speaking countries, and we were made to feel at home straight away by the other members of the squad.
“That togetherness we had back then is something I see in this current team, so it’s great to celebrate the period I played in at a time when it’s a really enjoyable time to be a Gooner. I think the range will be loved by supporters across the world, and it’s a nice gesture to those particularly in France – many of whom fell in love with the club during that period 20 years or so ago.”
The new range follows the release of our pre-match jersey earlier this season which has a bold, geometric print in green, gold and black—the colours of Jamaica’s flag, celebrating the club’s Jamaican supporters.
The full range is available to buy today from Arsenal Direct, The Armoury, adidas.com, and selected retailers.
