PUMA last night celebrated the launch of the 2015/16 Arsenal home kit, with a spectacular live event that included an appearance from first team players modelling the new strip. Over 1,000 Gunners fans made pilgrimage to Emirates Stadium and created a carnival atmosphere, joined by club legend Thierry Henry and DJ Gilles Peterson. With the crowd in full voice, accompanied by an innovate light show ‘Powered By Fans’, the countdown began before the new kit was revealed as the players took to the stage. Hector Bellerin, Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky, Danny Welbeck and Nacho Monreal took the applause of the crowd, before answering questions about the new strip, their record breaking FA Cup victory, and their aspirations for next season.
The 2015/16 kit marks PUMA’s second year of association with Arsenal, and will be available in-store from 25th June 2015.
