On the 7th of June 2018 Arsenal Football Club revealed their new away kit for the 2018/19 season. The desire, rhythm, and passion of the fans is what fuels the club, they are the pulse that drives the team as they play away from the Emirates.
For the 2018/19 Arsenal away kit the pulse is engineered into the evoKNIT performance fabric that the shirt is constructed from. Running across the chest and onto the sleeves, the subtle graphic is a nod to the famous WM formation introduced in the 1930’s by Arsenal legend Herbert Chapman.
Arsenal fans and kit enthusiasts alike will be familiar with the ‘Peacoat Navy’ used as the baseline colour for the shirt, a colour inherent throughout the club’s DNA since their 1908 away kit and mirrored in their current crest.
The accompanying shorts come in a heather effect created by mixing both the ‘Peacoat Navy’ of the away shirt with the red of the home shirt, whilst the socks match the shirt’s colour, adding a red band at the top and ARSENAL spelt out on the back.
The shirt and shorts are engineered using PUMA’s highly-developed evoKNIT thermoregulation technology, an enhanced moisture management and adaptive cooling system that helps create the perfect on-pitch body temperature. Combined with its seamless construction, the kit offers the ultimate in fit and mobility for optimum performance.
Engineered cooling zones in the shirt act as channels regulating the body’s temperature, whilst dryCELL technology provides moisture management across the fabric with high-performance yarns that wick sweat away from the body.
The kit is created using a seamless evoKNIT construction that provides a lightweight ‘second skin’ feel, so the fabric acts in harmony with the player’s movements and not against them, allowing for improved performance on the pitch.
Arsenal Football Club are part of an impressive roster of PUMA Football clubs both in the UK and internationally, including Borussia Dortmund, Burnley FC, Olympique de Marseille and National teams such as Italy, Switzerland, Uruguay, Senegal and Serbia.
