Arsenal Home Shirt for 2012-13 Season: Best Leaked Photo Yet [PHOTO]

Arsenal’s new home shirt for the 2012-13 season is this year’s worst-kept secret. After the initial leak in February, followed by an image from an industry trade show a couple of weeks later, we now have a third (and probably final) image of Arsenal’s home jersey for the 2012/13 season. And it’s the best, most clearest leaked photo yet (see above).

The black rounded collar and black trim at the bottom of the short-sleeves are the most prominent features of Arsenal’s new home kit. Featuring the classic red shirt of the Gunners and white sleeves, Arsenal’s home kit for next season looks different enough but without straying too far from the classic look-and-feel of Arsenal Football Club.

    Arsenal’s new hockey team?

  2. Steve says:

    Leaked? This clearly is as fake. It may be based on the real version but this one is not made my Nike. Some knock off company is trying to get a jump on sales. Look at the crest.

  3. Ryan says:

    The black. Is horrible.

  4. Stephen says:

    This is obviously a fake, but it’s close to the real deal. The black is not actually black, it’s a dark navy… So it’s a little less Man Utd and more New England Patriots…

  5. Jake I says:

    this is really happening..?

  6. Frill Artist says:

    Good God, that is ugly. Take the black off.

  7. Cody says:

    Horrid. The stripes on the sleeves are awful. They need a collar too.

  8. Jack Straw says:

    Don’t mind it if Navy, travesty if Black.

  9. Seminole Gunner says:

    Bastard child of an Arsenal and United shirt.

  10. hoosiergunner says:

    Not going for this one… even when I find a ton of them on clearance when they didn’t sell.

  11. raok says:

    Why don’t they keep all this experimental crap to away shirts.
    Home shirts should be red with white sleeves…

  12. Chicken Vindaloo says:

    uh, that shirt is red with white sleeves, Mr. No Perception.

  13. EDub says:

    Horrible … hopefully the second kit will be better than this year’s god-awful blue kit.

  14. i believe the news is totally rubbish.. last year also some photos were leaked of the 2011-2012 kit….

  15. brn442 says:

    It’s jarring at first but – it may actually work, especially if the “black” stripes are navy, as its a traditional colour of the gunners, the sleeves could be a bit more tailored…not a classic as the one two seasons ago…..let’s see it on a player first before passing final judgment.

  16. Fajita Jim says:

    Looks like they slapped the Arsenal crest on a rejected Man U kit. 0/10. Would not wear.

  17. MG says:


    Hope it’s fake.

  18. jay says:

    I would like to thank NIke and Arsenal for saving me money next year because I won’t be buying a home shirt.
    Black/navy on the home shirt is awful.

  19. Gooner Bill says:

    I hope during these next few weeks Arsenal can come up with something better than this mess. Needs thinner stripes and the black should be replaced with the same shade of blue as you see in the Club shield. Socks shoul be Red with s single blue stripe on the top. Whose idea of a sick jok is this design seean here? I hope its a fake or a practical joke. Please excuse me while I drink this terrible design out of mind.

  20. Arsenal Station says:

    For a number of years, Nike has done violence to our kits. I am a traditionalist and so I loved the 2010-11 home kit. If I had my way, we’d still be wearing the 1970-71 home and away kits. However, I learned to love the gold stripes of the 2006-08 kit and the screenprinted anniversary crest. Yet, even in years when they do a decent job on the home kit, the away kits are almost always a travesty.

    Considering we are the poor saps who have to buy and, even worse, wear some of these horrow shows, I wish the club would let members choose the final Nike design each year rather than them letting the Board do it.

  21. y says:

    it sucks , donty lyk it

  22. Drew says:

    Based on the mis-shaped badge, I’m pretty sure this is fake… but I believe the finished product will look somewhat like this. Don’t like the black but possibly could live with navy – our 99 and 01 kits weren’t too bad with navy trim I guess – but needs to be smaller. Also not sure if I like the idea of navy socks, though it is historical – personally I love the white with red for away games.

  23. Arsenal Indonesia says:

    surely hate that black… somehow, i think the last season’s kits looks much more elegant…

  24. Papa Ziglar says:

    I hate this black colour thing it should be stripped off!!

  25. MattAFC95 says:

    this is obviously fake, It doesn’t have the new badge (but that could be changed, but i doubt its the real thing) and it also has a look of UTDs shirt if yu know what im saying. By the way Steve, I think you and Joaane would make a lovely couple ;).

  26. Gooner4Life says:

    This is the real deal – released on 7th June – just pre-ordered it at the Emirates after the Norwich game

  27. chris ward says:

    Absolutely awful, we are not Man Utd or are we second best to them,lets go back to umbro or adidas, Enough said !!

  28. JKI says:

    They’re trying to look like Man United.

  29. Benji English says:

    It has now been released, and the black is navy blue matching the navy blue in the badge. This photo is from months ago! The socks also have the navy blue ring on them, and is from arsenal’s history when the hoops where introduced by Bertie Mee I believe to make their team mates easier to pick out.

  30. Alex Wolcott says:

    If you took the red stripe off the sleeve this would be fine (assuming the dark colour is blue and not black).

    But with the red stripe this is busy, clunky and an overall mess.

  31. SPYDINI says:

    The home kit is not quite okay,the black colour should be removed to make kit look familier to recent one.

  32. matthew says:

    is poo COM BOLTON
