Arsenal's new 2021/22 away kit 'leaked' including return of classic detail


Images of Arsenal’s new away kit for the 2021/22 season have reportedly been leaked online.

The Gunners are set to change both their first and second strips for the new campaign but are set to stay with current sponsors Adidas.

Their supposed new home kit was among a host of Premier League strips made public earlier this week, courtesy of FootyHeadlines.com.

And the same website seems to have got first glance at Arsenal’s fresh away ensemble, which includes the return of a classic detail.

The new kit is a shade of off-yellow, with navy logos and trim round the collar and sleeves, the latter of which also has a dash of red trim round the cuffs.

Makers Adidas have taken inspiration from some of Arsenal’s great kits from the 70s and 80s, including the title-winning strip from the famous 1988/89 season.

And rather than go with the whole badge on the front of the shirt, it looks as though Arsenal have brought back the simple cannon crest – much like the ’89 shirt and the away kit from 1971.

The new kit is expected to be unveiled in the summer at a likely cost of around £70-80 for the whole strip.

Naturally Arsenal will be keeping their familiar red and white colours in their new home kit, with leaked images showing they are set to bring back a v-neck collar.

Mikel Arteta will no doubt be hoping the new outfits will help spur his side on to greater success next season.

Arsenal sealed their passage to the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday, setting up a last eight tie with Dinamo Zagreb, who knocked out rivals Tottenham.

But despite going through on aggregate, Arteta has set his stall out for further improvement from his team in the months to come.

“It’s about the level of quality that we have to produce, to be where we want to be, to compete in the Premier League with the teams that we have to compete with, and in Europe with the teams that we have to face in the next games,” he said.

“So it’s just about that, for the rest I’m incredibly proud and happy for the group that we have the determination, the spirit. But we need to go another step forward.”
