Arsenal Football Club will wear a special edition one-off all white kit for its FA Cup match against Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
The jersey is called the ‘No More Red’ shirt and is in support of an anti-youth violence campaign of the same name.
Arsenal says that the program “will build on Arsenal in the Community’s work with young people in the capital, as well as providing more safe, positive spaces for young people and spotlighting talented individuals who are making a positive difference in their community. Throughout the initiative adidas also will be supporting by:
- Investing in creating and refurbishing safe spaces to play football – starting with the pitch on Harvist Estate just minutes away from Emirates Stadium
- Creating a No More Red mentorship scheme where young people doing positive work in the community will be supported by creative talent including Idris Elba, Ian Wright, DJ Emerald Rose Lewis and artist Reuben Dangoor among others
- Providing access to its talent network who will make regular contributions to Arsenal in the Community programmes that provide a wide range of training, quality spaces, positive role models and tangible opportunities for young people.”
The Arsenal FC 2022 ‘No More Red’ whiteout kit is the first all white jersey in The Gunners’ 135-year history. Match worn versions of the shirt will be given to select Greater London charities.
