Today, Arsenal Football Club reveal their new third kit for the 2018/19 season. The kit is inspired by the passion of the team’s fans in the conclusion of the ‘Beat of the City’ story, the theme of the club’s 2018/19 kit.
The beat is in the form of a “W”, engineered into the evoKNIT performance fabric of the shirt. Furthermore, the ‘W’ represents the attacking part of the famous WM formation, introduced in the 1930s by Arsenal legend Herbert Chapman, and is directly linked to the ‘M’ graphic featured on the away shirt.
The shirt comes in a modern Biscay Green colour with Peacoat Navy detailing. The green and navy combination is reminiscent of the 1982/83 ‘Bluebottle’ kit. A classic fold-over collar and two hoops on the sleeves complete the shirt. The shorts come in Biscay Green with a Peacoat Navy waistband while the socks are Biscay Green with four Peacoat Navy hoops circling them.
The kit is 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.
