Arsenal Football Shirt & Kit - Home - 2012-13 Season - Nike
Nike has unveiled Arsenal new home football shirt and kit for the 2012-13 season
and it’s available to buy here. In their press release on the release of the shirt
Nike explained how the new shirt pays tribute to the North London club’s visionary
past and bright future, and is inspired by 126 years of innovation and style.
Arsenal Football Club has a proud tradition of innovation and change. In the 1920’
and 30’s, the club’s manager was Herbert Chapman and he championed the use of floodlights,
numbered shirts and white footballs in the modern game. And Nike, official kit supplier
and leaders in design and innovation, has designed a new home kit that pays tribute
to club heritage whilst offering players and fans a modern and stylish new uniform.
Take a look at some of the photo’s below for a closer look at some of the shirts
The shirt has the traditional red body with white sleeves but Nike have added a blue
(obsidian) hoop detail on the collar, sleeves and socks.
Blue (obsidian) has often been used as a third colour on Arsenal’s shirts throughout
their history and also features in the Arsenal crest; and it’s inclusion in the kit
for the 2012-13 season recognises that past but also gives it a fresh, bold look.
Heritage details include an inner neck graphic which reads; ‘Victoria Concordia Crescit’
(the club’s latin logo meaning ‘Victory Through Harmony’).
