Cape Town - The new 2015/16 Arsenal home kit has gone on sale both
online and in stores around the world.
Featuring Arsenal’s traditional home colours applied with a modern
approach to materials and a formal silhouette, this new playing kit will be
seen on pitch for the first time in July during pre-season.
The new Arsenal home shirt features a
grandad collar and gold piping trim around the collar edge, the colour staying
true to The Gunners' classic red and white strip that first appeared in 1933. The main body is red to represent the
tradition of the Gunners through the years, with bold jacquard stripes running
horizontally. The white sleeves feature PUMA’s classic Form Strip, elegantly
highlighted with red piping and combined with mesh inserts for breathability.

maestro and PUMA player said: “The new
kit has a traditional, classic look which is important to Arsenal. I like the way PUMA has embraced our
traditional colours with a striking design and materials that really improve
comfort and performance. I know the fans
are going to be really happy with this new kit and I’m looking forward to
pre-season when we can wear it out on the pitch.”
