Arsenal will donate £5 to their community foundation for every sale of their 2022/23 home kit, which features white trim and an eye-catching design on the collar
Arsenal have released their home kit for the 2022/23 season which will be worn for the first time against Everton on the final day of the current Premier League campaign.
The Adidas-made shirt comes in the club’s traditional bright red hue and features white trim with an eye-catching lightning bolt pattern on the collar. It will be worn with white shorts and socks and will make its debut as the Gunners host the Toffees at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
In a charitable gesture, Arsenal have pledged to donate £5 to their foundation – which supports local community initiatives – for every home shirt purchased through the club between May 19 and August 5. This will help local projects such as Finsbury Park Bowls Club, Islington Boxing Club, Tufnell Park Primary School, Maha Devi Yoga Centre, New North Academy Fencing Club and North London United, a community sports project for young people with Down syndrome.
Freddie Hudson, Arsenal Community Leader, said, “We are extremely proud of the work we have done to bring our community together and support the lives of people in our area for over 35 years. People are the heart of our community and the £5 donation from our door-to-door shirt sales will provide vital support to the local projects that serve our diverse North London community so well.
“The last two years have been particularly difficult and the impact continues to be felt, but it’s amazing what we can accomplish when we all come together to support each other. We continue to be inspired by those who make the Arsenal family so special, and we are delighted to be able to give a little back in this unique way.

Arsenal have signed a five-year deal with Adidas ahead of the 2019/20 season to make the German sportswear giant their new kit manufacturer, replacing Puma. The deal is thought to be worth £60million per season.
The Emirates faithful are now awaiting the release of the club’s away and third kits for the upcoming campaign. This season’s change stripes have been pale yellow and dark blue, but a color change is planned for the 2022/23 season.
Leaked images suggest the away kit will be black with gold trim and the third kit will be pink with black trim, marking a significant change from Arsenal shirts of recent years. The new home kit is available to buy direct from Arsenal’s website or from The Armory, the club’s flagship store outside the Emirates.
