So we have the third of this season and maybe the last ever Puma Arsenal shirt depending on who the new sponsorship deal is with next season. So here it is, and I quite like it! Very translucent and snazzy….
Here is the bumph that Arsenal sent out with the announcement…
Together with kit partner PUMA, Arsenal has officially unveiled their 2018/19 third kit at an exclusive fan event on their pre-season tour of Singapore.
Arsenal stars Hector Bellerin, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Alexandre Lacazette and Petr Cech revealed the new kit on stage at The Esplanade in front of excited supporters.
The new shirt features a ‘W’ engineered into the shirt. The ‘W’ represents the attacking part of the famous WM formation introduced in the 1930s by Arsenal legend Herbert Chapman and is directly linked to the ‘M’ graphic from their new away shirt.
The shirt comes in a modern green base colour with navy detailing, reminiscent of the 1982/83 ‘Bluebottle’ kit. The accompanying shorts are in the same colours while the socks are also green with four navy hoops circling them.
The third kit was created using a seamless evoKNIT that provides a lightweight ‘second skin’ feel, designed to move in harmony with the player’s movements.
The new kit is on sale now via Arsenal Direct.
