Arsenal unveil new ‘blood-splatter’ away kit

Arsenal have chosen to unveil a new ‘blood-splatter’ looking away kit on the same day the Premier League fixtures were released.

The much talked about strip was previously leaked by the ever reliable site FootyHeadlines, and it’s fair to say we’re not sure whether we like it or not.

The club finished the 2019/20 season in 8th place, their worst Premier League finish since 1995, which saw them 12th.

Arsenal said via their club website on Thursday: “We are delighted to reveal our new away kit for the 2020/21 season for our men’s, women’s and academy teams.

“The new kit will be worn on the pitch for the first time on Saturday, August 22, when we face Paris Saint-Germain in the Women’s Champions League quarter-final.

“The new adidas kit for the 2020/21 season is now available at our flagship Armoury store, Arsenal Direct, adidas.co.uk and selected adidas stores exclusively until Wednesday, August 26.

“The shirt unites generations with a design that represents the famous marble halls of Highbury’s iconic East Stand. Built in 1936, the facade of the East Stand remains in place after our 2006 move to Emirates Stadium, providing a permanent reminder of The Arsenal’s storied past.

“The film also celebrates the famous marble halls of Highbury, reflecting on our glorious history while looking forward to a promising future. The film begins in the iconic east stand entrance before moving into an alternative marble world. The one-shot sequence tells the story behind the shirt in a visionary way that unites past icons with the present day heroes taking the club forward.”

Arsenal have already unveiled their new home kit for the 2020/21 campaign.

The new adidas home shirt was worn for the first time on pitch when the Gunners played Watford in the final game of the Premier League season at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The team also wore the new shirt for the Heads Up FA Cup final at Wembley on the 1st of August, where they broke their own record by lifting the trophy for the 14th time.

The deeper shade of red that runs through the new shirt is synonymous with their famous heritage and the pattern is influenced by the club’s Art Deco period in the 1930s and 40s.

Fans gave their reaction afterArsenal unveil their new ‘blood-splatter’ looking away kit…

Harvey Jacobs: It’s not the worst thing I’ve ever seen

Paul Simpson: Our kits are usually class, but this is the most disappointing away one we’ve had for ages

Jason Lee: Really not keen on that. They could do so much better, why do another spin of another classic retro away kit? All it looks like to me a bloody splattered all over it!

Tim Reed: That’s going straight in my basket

Will Ford: The kit designer needs to take themselves to specsavers, because that’s just awful

Aziz Ahmed: Nah, bro, you think I’m actually gunna buy that? No chance

Jerunimo Jackson: Pretending the new away kit isn’t printed with fake blood is funny. Ive never seen marble at Highbury. Look at the pics, advert or Google it. We can all see no marble at all. Some1 must’ve green lit the murder scene kit & PR trying rescue it with faux nostalgia lol #afc

Michael Joiner: What a horrible shirt. They look like blood stains. The second kit should always be the iconic yellow and blue.

Nick Wells: Not a fan of arsenal in white. Even blood splatter and white. Perhaps apt for 2020 however
