It was a colourful ceremony, where over 1000 fans were present, joined by club legend Thierry Henry and DJ Gilles Peterson creating a carnival atmosphere.
Hector Bellerin, Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky, Danny Welbeck and Nacho Monreal took the stage wearing the new Arsenal 15-16 home kit. They spoke about about the new kit, FA Cup victory and aspirations for next season.
Santi Cazorla said: “Our fans are incredible and play a really big role in our performance and motivation. Being at the Emirates this evening and seeing so many of them chanting and supporting us was really great. There was so much passion in the crowd, it reminds us how lucky we are to have these supporters. The (2015-16 PUMA home) kit has a lovely design, classic like an Arsenal kit should be with some very nice design features.”
It was Puma’s second season of partnership with Arsenal. The global sport brand has designed the Puma 15-16 Arsenal replica shirt with modern approach to materials, combined with more formal and traditional silhouette.
The 15-16 Arsenal home Kit features a grande collar and gold pipping trim around the collar edge. The colour stays true to The Gunners’ classic red and white strip that first appeared in 1933.
PUMA’s 2015/16 Arsenal campaign Powered By Fans, represents the importance of Arsenal’s fans to the club and players. The fans play a major role in the performance of the team and the campaign represents this energy and how it can motivate and energise the players.
