PUMA launches much-anticipated new Arsenal Football Club Home

India Infoline News Service | Mumbai |

The blue and lime green Future Cup kit will be worn by Arsenal away from home in Cup competitions, including the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup.

PUMA has launched the much-anticipated new Arsenal Football Club Home, Away and Cup kits for the 2014/15 season.  Each of the kits has a unique design drawn from the core values PUMA identified as being the essence of Arsenal.  These values inspire theFuture, Forever, Victorious story that underpins the PUMA and Arsenal campaign, Stronger Together.
 
The blue and lime green Future Cup kit will be worn by Arsenal away from home in Cup competitions, including the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup.  It symbolizes the desire for innovation and progression that has driven the club through its history, resulting in Arsenal becoming the first team to wear numbers on shirts and the first club to have stadium floodlights so the team could play at night.  It also acknowledges the focus on youth development that has become synonymous with the club. 
 

The Cup shirt combines diagonal blue stripes with a twist of lime green on the body panels and the sleeve cuff tips, bringing a youthful and fresh look to the shirt, with a tailored button down collar.
 
The home kit stays true to the traditional red and white Arsenal colours that first appeared in 1933. It represents Forever, inspired by the strong and loyal fan base Arsenal has built over the years, and the importance of this community to the Gunners. From the very beginning, Arsenal supporters have been at the heart of the club, a sentiment that stands true today as Arsenal’s appeal continues to spread to every corner of the world. 
 

The crew neck Home shirt has a classic red body with heat transfer tapes running down the body. It has iconic white contrast sleeves that feature tipping on the cuffs, a design detail also seen on the Away and Cup shirts.
 
Victorious is the theme of the Away shirt, designed in the iconic yellow and navy blue colours worn by Arsenal during some of the most famous Gunners victories away from home.  Arsenal’s players and supporters have always demonstrated a class and excellence away from home, and the yellow and blue colours are inextricably linked with some of the Gunners’ greatest moments including the 1971 and 1979 FA Cup Final wins, and the title winning victory at Anfield in 1989. 

The yellow V neck Arsenal Away shirt features heat transfer tapes running down the body and blue contrast sleeves with yellow and red tipping on the cuffs.
 
Arsenal star Mikel Arteta said, “The new kits have really impressed the players, especially because of the story behind them, which is something felt by everyone at this club.  Arsenal is special, and the creation of these kits is a wonderful way to acknowledge that.  PUMA has done an excellent job with the design. It's a great start to this new season and we are hungry to progress and bring more silverware to Arsenal and our fans.”
 
Arsène Wenger, Manager of Arsenal FC added“This is a big day for Arsenal.  It is the start of our new partnership with PUMA and everyone here is extremely happy with how things are developing.  We like the performance innovations PUMA is creating for our playing and training kits and we have real confidence in they support they will give us as our technical partner.  Today is a landmark in our club’s history as we look ahead to the upcoming season.”
 
Björn Gulden, Chief Executive Officer at PUMA said“We have looked forward to this launch for some time. Many people here have been working hard towards this moment and I’m sure Arsenal fans around the world will be excited by the kit designs, as well as the training and fanwear collections.  It is a privilege working with Arsenal, not just because of the stature of the club but also the integrity of its people.  I am absolutely sure this is the start of a long and prosperous relationship for both PUMA and Arsenal.”
 
The performance shirts that the Arsenal players will wear on pitch features PUMA’s new football apparel innovation PWR ACTV, a technology that combines athletic taping and compression within the apparel to help players maximise performance.  The ACTV tape is strategically placed within the garment to provide micro-massages on the skin, working with the human body to provide players with a faster, more effective energy supply to the active muscles.

The Replica shirts all feature breathable underarm mesh inserts and PUMA dryCELL moisture management technology. They have the same design aesthetic as the on-pitch shirt worn by the Arsenal team but they have a more relaxed fit.
