On Saturday, Arsenal wore the distinctive white kit for a third consecutive season as they took on Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Introduced in January 2022, No More Red supports Arsenal's longstanding efforts to combat knife crime and youth violence. This year, adidas and Arsenal expanded community involvement in No More Red by unveiling a No More Red community t-shirt designed by a young individual from Arsenal in the Community.
Unlike the No More Red kit, the bespoke community t-shirt will be available for purchase at Arsenal stores starting January 29 for £30. Notably, £30 from each t-shirt sold will be donated in equal portions to No More Red Charity Partners, including The Arsenal Foundation, Abianda, Octopus Community Network Limited, Box Up Crime, Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation, Ben Kinsella Trust, Copenhagen Youth Project, and St Giles Trust.
In 2024, adidas and Arsenal are set to build on the successes of No More Red by opening a third refurbished community pitch at Mayville Estate in Islington, continuing mentor-led Social Action Projects that offer 83 young people opportunities to gain experience in the creative industries, sustaining a volunteer incentive scheme in collaboration with No More Red charity partners, allowing supporters to donate their time to support the associated charities and much more.
Expressing her excitement about the project, Nellie-Rose – the young person who designed the t-shirt – stated, "Community is everything, and it is what No More Red is all about, so it was important this was brought to life in my design. I feel proud that my creation was chosen to represent the campaign and provide the community with another way to support and feel connected to the initiative."
Alongside the men’s team, the Arsenal Women's team will also wear the all-white No More Red kit for the first time when they face Watford in the FA Cup fourth round at Meadow Park on January 14.
