Following on from the launch of their all-white kit and “No More Red” initiative, Arsenal and adidas have unveiled a new project inspired by the football club’s home city. Working with Transport for London, Arsenal and adidas have crafted a pre-match collection that will be worn by the players as they warm up ahead of games.

The inspiration for the collection goes back to 1932, when Gillespie Road station was renamed Arsenal, creating the only Underground station to be named after a football club. Nowadays, Arsenal station still serves the club’s home ground, with the Picadilly line running to and from. For this collection, Arsenal and adidas have created an all-over print that draws from the seat pattern — known as the “moquette” — that features on Picadilly line seats.

The collection incorporates five pieces, including a matching adult shirt and youth jersey, as well as reversible padded vest and pant, which are designed with a navy base color and Arsenal tube station branding. Additionally, artist and Arsenal fan Reuben Dangoor to create a limited-edition Oyster card, that can be obtained through buying other items in the collection through the adidas app.

To mark the launch of the collaboration, Warren Macdonald, Area Manager of Arsenal station on the Piccadilly line, said:

“It’s fantastic that adidas and Arsenal have teamed up with Transport for London for this new pre-match range which reflects the story of Arsenal Tube station and the Piccadilly line moquette. Arsenal station has had a deep relationship with the football club for almost 90 years and there is nothing quite like the atmosphere and excitement on a match day. I look forward to seeing fans passing through the station wearing this eye-catching new pre-match range on their way to and from the stadium.”

The pre-match jersey will make its debut ahead of Arsenal’s match against Liverpool tonight, while the jersey is available now from the adidas web store, Arsenal’s official club stores and select retailers.
