Various sources have denied the authenticity of Arsenal 2023/24 kit photos doing the rounds on social media this week, days after the home kit leaked.
Earlier this week, new photos of Arsenal’s home kit for the 2023/24 season leaked on social media. Though not 100% confirmed, insider sources appear to be in agreement that those home kit leaks are accurate.
After that, one or two posts went viral appearing to show the designs of the away shirt and third kit, but these posts have now been labelled as fakes.
Chris Davison reports that of the social media leaks, only the leaked home kit is likely to be genuine.
Arsenal Shirt Collection posted a group of the fakes on Twitter, writing that it’s “confirmed” that none of them are genuine.
Instead, Arsenal Shirt Collection report that the away shirt will be fluoro yellow with mainly black applications and blue accents, whilst the third shirt will be green and blue with white accents.
None of the fake shirts in the tweet above fit with those descriptions, so they can all be written off.
It’s certainly not unusual for fakes to crop up at this time of year.
The general pattern is that new kit details are shared by genuine leakers, and scammers then produce fakes based on those details.
The scammers then share photos of their “leaked shirt”, before trying to sell their fakes to anyone who believes them.
It happens every year, and this is no exception. Anyone who wants a genuine replica of next season’s away and third kit shirts should hold fire and wait for the designs to be officially confirmed.
