The first details of Arsenal’s 2021-22 home kit leaked a few weekends ago, not long after our first hints at the away shirt design, but nobody cared as we were all sad at losing so much.

FootyHeadlines reported that Arsenal will use scarlet as their main colour for the new home shirt, with white and ‘mystery blue’ as the other two colours to feature in the design. For those who aren’t aware, scarlet is a darker shade of red than the current design.

FootyHeadlines don’t know anything specific about the design just yet, but they expect the blue colour to be used on the shirt stripes. The white will presumably feature on the shorts, socks, and possibly the sleeves, as usual.

There are no details of the exact release date just yet, with the report only suggesting it will be between late May and July.

In November, we got our first look at the 2021-22 away kit details, with the shirt expected to be ‘pearl citrine’ coloured and inspired by kits from the 1970s to the 1990s. Citrine is a “transparent, yellow variety of Quartz, ranging in colour from pale to golden yellow, honey or almost brown, and may contain rainbow or sparkle inclusions.”

We’re clearly at the start of kit leak season, and I’d expect further details about these two kits and the third kit to come out in the coming months as they start to go into production.
