Arsenal will have a new shirt sponsor this season as they switch from Nike, with whom they had a 20 year relationship, to Puma; and today some pictures of the Gunners possible away kit are circulating the internet.
The North London club announced their partnership with Puma for licensing deals back in January, with a lucrative deal worth around £150 million agreed. There have been a number of leaked Arsenal kits that have been doing the rounds on the Internet, and after revealing two such kits last year, this is our third.
The Gunners classic away shirt has sometimes been yellow and blue, but other variations including a blue, white and purple have been experimented with in the past. However, it now appears that Puma are kicking off their partnership with Arsenal by reverting to the classic yellow, producing a kit that looks remarkably like Atletico Madrid’s away kit for this season.
The Fly Emirates logo will also be written in red, while a snappy V neck design harks back to some of the Sega kits at the end of the 90s. It is difficult to accept these pictures as certainties as to what the kits will look like, but with the official release date only a month away, all leaks are showing the same design, lending weight to the fact that the actual jersey might be very close to those pictured.
