Arsenal have announced Nike have created a commemorative football shirt after their FA Cup final win to thank the Gunners for their 20-year partnership.
The north London club alliance with sporting giants Nike is set to come to an end this summer with PUMA set to take over the sides merchandising responsibilities in a big money deal.
Arsenal’s official website described the ‘memories attached to those shirts live on’ through the evocative design that features cropping from some of the Gunners most famous kits including the Invincibles, the Highbury commemorative redcurrant top and uses this season’s FA Cup winning shirt as the base design.
Marc van Pappelendam, VP/GM of Nike UK & Ireland told the clubs official website:
Nike has enjoyed a wonderful partnership with Arsenal Football Club. As the Arsenal team became more iconic, their kit designs followed suit. The kits which Nike has produced for the club over the last 20 years tell a story; a timeline of success which will be remembered for a long time to come.
Individually-numbered limited edition prints of the top will be available for purchase at Nike’s Phenomenal House in London, where the shirt itself will be also be on display between May 26 and 30. The Gunners have confirmed proceeds will go to The Arsenal Foundation.
Wish it was available for purchase, would look quite nice on the wall..
