Classic Design Meets Contemporary Innovation
Arsenal Football Club, a renowned name in English Premier League, and Adidas, the global sportswear giant, have officially unveiled the club’s home kit for the 2021/22 season today. This new home jersey, painted in the classic red and white hues, will debut in the upcoming friendly match against Glasgow Rangers this weekend.
Inspirations Behind The Design
Contemporary football kit designs often draw inspiration from past iconic styles or elements tied to the club’s history. Arsenal, being a club with a rich tradition, is no exception. Over the past few seasons, Adidas has crafted excellent kit designs for Arsenal. However, the newly released home kit for the 2021/22 season stands out. It is inspired by the classic “Gunners” red and white color palette and features a minimalist design. Compared to previous plans, one notable change in this jersey is the navy blue Adidas three-stripe emblem on the shoulders.
Promoting Diversity with ‘Arsenal for Everyone
Like the new away kit released earlier, the home jersey also features an “Arsenal for Everyone” badge inside the collar. This is a tribute to the diversity of the Arsenal family. “Arsenal for Everyone” is a diversity and inclusivity initiative launched by the club in 2008. The campaign aims to instill a sense of belonging among the club’s community members.
A Kit for Players and Fans Alike
The new home kit has been launched in two versions: a player edition and a fan edition. The player edition employs Adidas’ HEAT, and RDY technology aids in cooling and sweat dispersion, thus ensuring comfort and confidence for the players on the field. On the other hand, the fan edition is equipped with AEROREADY technology, providing comfort for the wearers and allowing them to support the athletes fully.
Tierney’s Anticipation for the New Kit and Fans’ Return
Speaking about the new kit, Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney said, “I love it. It’s a great design, and I can’t wait to fight for the team in front of the fans. The atmosphere is not the same without the fans. We’re eager to get out of this situation and hope the Emirates Stadium can be as noisy as it used to be.”
In summary, the launch of Arsenal’s 2021/22 home kit marks a fresh chapter in the club’s sartorial history. With its tribute to diversity and inclusion, striking design, and the anticipation of players and fans alike, this new kit embodies the spirit of the Arsenal family – diverse, passionate, and always ready for the game.
