Report release today says Mikel Arteta’s men will wear an all-white kit majorly to promote a campaign against knife crime in London As they play against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round this Sunday.

Arsenal will use an all-white kit against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round on Sunday evening in order to raise awareness for a fight against knife crime in London.

Arsenal has worn some variation of red as their home strip throughout the entirety of their 136-year history, but for the first and only time on Sunday, they will happily wear the white ‘home’ shirt.

The shirt is made by Adidas, the regular kit designer, and will not be available in stores for fans.

The jersey will be donated to various organizations that help combat knife crime and youth violence by the ten outfield players who will wear it.

Kierney, Gabriel Martinelli, and Nuno Tavares all wore the all-white uniform.

“Last year saw a record number of adolescents murdered in London,” Arsenal tweeted to their millions of supporters across the world to confirm the news.

“It’s time to take genuine action to make a real difference.” Our white shirt will not be sold or profited from. “There Will Be No More Red.”

Knife crime was a major contributor to the largest percentage of teens murdered in the capital on record in 2021, according to Arsenal’s promotional video.

Ian Wright, a club veteran, is a prominent figure in the “No More Red” collaborative project between Arsenal and Adidas.

Arsenal has been punished after admitting to an FA allegation in the aftermath of the Man City affair.

The latest issue with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as an Arsenal target indicates his agent’s imprecise negotiations.

“We can never accept loss of life via juvenile violence as ‘normal’ in our city,” the Arsenal legend stated on Friday, “and it’s so crucial that we all work together to build a safer environment for young people.”

“The shirt will be presented to individuals and organizations who are giving back to the community and creating a constructive atmosphere for young people as a symbol of positivity in the neighborhood.”

Idris Elba, a Hollywood celebrity and a long-time Arsenal supporter, is one of the campaign’s faces and mirrored Wright’s thoughts.

This Sunday, Bukayo Saka is set to be one of ten outfield players to wear the jersey.

“There is often a hole, a dangerous spike of nothing to do between the time young people leave school and the time they are at home with family,” Elba stated.

“We will always see gangs grow if there are no opportunities for this after-school period.” Let’s give these young folks options.”

The Gunners travel to the City Venue nearly four years to the day after being knocked out of the FA Cup at the same stage, on the same ground, by the same opponents.

In what was to be Arsene Wenger’s final game in the Premier League, Forest defeated Arsenal 4-2 in the third round in January 2018.
