Arsenal are currently seeing out the last year in their sponsorship deal with Puma, that sees the sportswear company design the club’s kits for each season. It’s fair to say that in the final year, Puma has done a shocking job on the 3rd kit.

According to a Daily Mail article from back in April, The Gunners are already discussing the details of a new kit deal with Adidas, who supplied the kit for Arsenal back between 1986 and 1994. If the club could ditch Puma and ick up a deal with Adidas then hat would be as good as a signing in the eyes of a lot of fans, whose eyes are hurting from seeing the latest abomination of a football kit from Puma.
There’s so much wrong with Arsenal’s 3rd kit launch and fans are struggling to comprehend what it’s all about. Arsenal aren’t traditionally a club that plays in blue yet they’ve had two blue kits in two years now, after last season saw them play in a blue away kit. Also, they’ve got Petr Cech in to model the kit yet he’s not wearing the goalkeeper version. Overall, the fans are disgusted, confused and all in all, not that surprised that Puma has let them down with this shocker.

Puma should be banned from creating football kits.

As you can see, the fans will be counting down the days until they’ve kicked the Puma deal and are back with Adidas.
