Arsenal have officially launched their turquoise third kit on their pre-season tour of Singapore.
Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Petr Cech were on hand to help unveil the colourful Puma kit on Friday at The Esplanade in front of the Arsenal supporters.
The 2018-19 shirt consists of two navy stripes around the sleeves while it also comes with a traditional collar as opposed to the home and away jerseys.
The new shirt features a ‘W’ engineered into the shirt, in tribute to the attacking part of former boss Herbert Chapman’s WM formation, which was introduced in the 1930s. It is directly linked to the ‘M’ graphic on the away shirt.
The strip is reminiscent of Arsenal’s 1982-83 ‘Bluebottle’ kit and the shorts and socks are also in the same colours, with the latter having four navy hopes circling them.
The 2018-19 kit will provide the squad with a lightweight ‘second skin’ feel, which will help with the players’ movements.
If you’re looking to buy the new kit, which is on sale from July 28, the EvoKNIT authentic shirt will cost supporters £100, while the shorts will set you back £45.
The likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan helped promote the brand new strip further by taking part in a photoshoot in Singapore.
Arsenal are next in action against Unai Emery’s former club Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday in the International Champions Cup.
