A photograph of Arsenal’s home shirt for the 2011-12 season has been leaked on the Internet.
The new Arsenal home shirt features a design that is similar to the current 2010-11 one, but the most prominent new feature is a wreath around the Arsenal crest. Also noticeable is that the sleeves are white with no red trim apparent. Meanwhile, the collar on the shirt is red instead of the current white color.
Personally I think the design is too similar to the current shirt except for the wreath. But since the wreath marks the 125th year anniversary of Arsenal, it has a deeper meaning and therefore will be a prized possession among many Arsenal supporters.
Arsenal was founded in 1886 as Dial Square FC by workers at the Woolwich armaments factory in London, south of the River Thames. The club’s first crest (pictured) was created in 1888 and featured three cannons with a wreath around the edges. It’s thus a fitting tribute to have the wreath motif adorned on the Arsenal home shirt for the 2011-2012 Premier League season.
