Kit information[edit]

All of the new Arsenal kit this season featured with new sponsor, Fly Emirates. After 4 season with previous sponsor O2.

  • Home The new home kit returned to a solid red shirt with white sleeves, white shorts and white socks, the colours Arsenal are well known for, after the last season saw a redcurrant 'anniversary' kit in final season at Highbury. The new features added to the home kit was a red band appearing on the sleeves and socks, while the golden trimmings appeared on the side of the shirt. The home was usually worn with white socks, however red socks were worn in some away games in order to prevent color confused.
  • Away The yellow and dark grey away kit from last season was retained.
  • Keeper The goalkeeper kit were based on Nike's Harlequin template, which was basically a strip split into subtle halves in two tones of one colour. The main kit was green, but the black and yellow kit were available should they be required.
