Kit information[edit]

All of the 2006 kits featured the new sponsor, Fly Emirates.

  • Home The new home kit returned to a solid red shirt with white sleeves, shorts and socks, the colours Arsenal are well known for, after the last season saw a redcurrant 'anniversary' strip. The new features added to the home strip 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 confusion.
  • Away The yellow and grey away kit from last season was retained.
  • Keeper The goalkeeper strips were based on Nike's Harlequin template, which was basically a strip split into subtle halves in two tones of one colour. The main strip was green, but the black and yellow strips were available should they be required.
