Puma just suffered the seemingly inevitable event that all kit manufacturers absolutely dread, the leak of Arsenal’s new strip for the 2017/18 campaign.
Images of the leaks shows changes to the Gunners’ normal and quite traditional kit style – the shade of red used.
The official name of the colour for the Arsenal 17-18 kit is ‘Chilli Pepper’ and it was used for the darker parts of the 2016 Czech Republic jersey.
However, it won’t be changing too much elsewhere on the strip. It is expected to be kept rather simple and clean, in line with the whole historic inspiration.
It’s confirmed that the Arsenal cannon will be present on the shirt, while the sleeves will certainly be white as is tradition. Shorts and socks of the Arsenal 2017-2018 home kit are expected to be white, although it’s not confirmed in the latter case.
