ARSENAL face Liverpool in a huge FA Cup clash – but the Gunners will be wearing white instead of red.
Mikel Arteta‘s men are in need of a victory after such a horrible ending to 2023.
And the Gunners gaffer will be hoping that this change strip sends out a rightful message as well as driving his team to victory.
But why are Arsenal ditching their famous colours for a third consecutive year?
Why will Arsenal wear white for FA Cup clash against Liverpool?
Arsenal will be wearing white instead of red against Liverpool to mark the third year of their No More Red campaign with Adidas.
It was first launched in 2022 to support work done by the Gunners to keep young people safe from knife crime and youth violence.
The Office of National Statistics reports that were 13,503 knife-enabled crimes in London from June 2022 to the same month in 2023.
So along with the kit, Adidas and Arsenal have revealed that they will invest more in safe spaces to play football with the opening of a third refurbished community pitch at Mayville Estate.
Declan Rice believes that the all-white kit can have a ‘massive’ impact on the community.
Will the kit be on sale?
The No More Red kit will not be put up for sale despite it being so popular amongst fans.
However, a bespoke community t-shirt will be available to purchase instead for £30 on Monday, January 29.
Funds generated from the shirt will then be donated in equal proportions to several No More Red’s charity partners including the Arsenal foundation, Box Up Crime and Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation.
Who did Arsenal last wear the kit against?
And they put on the all-white kit again for a 3-0 away win at Oxford in last season’s FA Cup third round.
