Arsenal’s 2011/12 Home & Away kits
Arsenal have announced their 125th anniversary kit for next season.
The shirt is a much simpler designer than the current jersey, with no trim on the collar of the shirt or sleeves this time around. Added to that, the club crest is emblazoned on the front of the top as usual but this time features a white wreath surrounding it.
“The classic design is inspired by the 1970’s strips and boasts a clean, refined look with a block red body and white sleeves with red speed stripe detail. The shorts are white with a red speed stripe. On the back of the shirt below the neck reads ‘Arsenal’, while inside the front, on the back of the crest, reads ‘Victoria Concordia Crescit’, (‘Victory Through Harmony’), Arsenal’s Latin motto, which was previously featured on earlier versions of their club crest between 1949 and 2002″, an Arsenal press release said.
Next season’s away kit was leaked over a fortnight ago by ArsenalInsider with similar colours used to those in the 95/96 season, when Nike also made the club’s shirts.
