adidas x Arsenal away kit 2019/20

We can now unveil our new away kit for the 2019/20 season!

Inspired by the iconic ‘bruised banana’ away strip seen during the early ’90s, the new shirt celebrates the club’s history with a progressive interpretation of a classic kit synonymous with Arsenal.

Available to buy now at ArsenalDirect

The design features a modern twist on the historic ‘bruised banana’ graphic. A minimal, shaded zig-zag pattern adorns the famous bright yellow of the Arsenal away shirt. The revived and redesigned kit for this season, previously a symbol of the adidas and Arsenal partnership, brings the past into the present with this bold new design.

This kit features a modern, navy crew neck collar with colour-matched navy adidas stripes on the shoulders and logo. The navy detailing matches the navy used in the 1991-3 design graphic, a subtle nod to an old era brought into the future.

The new kit will be worn for the first time at our pre-season friendly against Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 17 and its first Premier League airing will be in our first game of the Premier League season against Newcastle United on Sunday, August 11.

The away kit is available to purchase at ArsenalDirect well as Arsenal and adidas stores, retailers and fashion stores across the globe.

‘I’ve been here 12 years, so to score feels great’

For 12 years, James Olayinka had been dreaming of a moment that finally arrived on Monday evening.

The 18-year-old has risen through the age groups at Arsenal, and crowned just his second appearance for the first team by finding the top corner from 20 yards against Colorado Rapids in Denver.

After the match, the midfielder spoke to - and here's what he said.

on his goal…
I just picked the ball up on the edge of the area and when I looked up, I saw the keeper on the other side. I took a shot, made sure it was on target, and luckily it went in.

on how it felt to see the ball go in…
I was actually on the floor when I kicked it, so when I looked up, it was just in time to see it hit the net. It's a great feeling. I'm just happy I got the goal really.

on what it means to score…
I've been here for 12 years now, so to finally score for the first team is a great feeling. I'm sure everyone at home is happy and hopefully there are many more to come.

on friends and family watching at home despite the time difference…
Yeah, my family and friends asked where to watch it on TV, so I'm sure they were watching. The time difference has made it tough for me to talk to people back home, so hopefully a few people stayed up so they could see the game.

on playing in front of a capacity crowd in Denver…
I think it's a bit nerve-wracking at first, because you come out to warm up and see a lot of people there. But once you get the first few passes out of the way, it gets easier. You grow into the game. It's a good feeling and a good experience.

on his hopes for the rest of the tour…
Just to keep training well in our sessions and hopefully the head coach could give me a chance in some of the bigger games we have along the way. Hopefully I can make the difference in those as well if I get the opportunity.
