Arsenal to announce Puma deal on Monday?

Arsenal to announce Puma deal on Monday?

It looks as though Arsenal will publicly announce the club’s new kit deal with Puma on Monday with invitations to a ‘special media conference’ dropping in press email inboxes this morning.

The club have thus far stubbornly refused to comment on reports of a new long-term commercial partnership, likely because of contractual responsibilities with current provider Nike, despite images appearing months ago of Thierry Henry and the current squad modelling the new kit and training gear.

The Puma deal, which ends a 20-year relationship with Nike, is understood to be worth £30 million a year over five years and will kick-in at the end of this season.

Last month Arseblog News confirmed details of the new kits revealing our third shirt will involve a blue and lime colour combination.

A few of the leaked images below…

  1. Mildly Amusing Name

    Let’s hope they don’t bring an actual puma to the presser… we have enough problems with injuries as it is.

    • I don’t like the look of that top with the zipper neck that Giroud is wearing in the first pic. If it doesn’t look good on him what chance do the rest of us have. The team are playing that well at the moment they could be wearing red and white potato sacks and i wouldn’t give a shit.

  4. Love the close fitted style of Puma tops, but I’m guessing there are going to be quite a few fans buying several sizes larger.

  6. I just don’t think I can stomach this. Arsenal have always been associated with Nike throughout their 100+year history. What am I to do?

  10. Nike will be regretting this big time in the future…….ARSENAL ARE BACK and our famous red and white shirts will be shown parading trophies around the world on tv for years to come without the iconic swoosh.
    They’ll be fucking kicking themselves !

    Ohh someone please hijack Utd-Mata deal.
    Its just WRONG..!!!
    They need to rot for another couple of season. Someone stop it plsssss…

    • Desperation signing there defence has a big hole in it. Don’t see how he solves that problem.

      Thumb up 3 Thumb down 0

      • Yes, Moyes really wasn’t thinking clearly there (I know, I’m being redundant again). Mata plays exactly the some role and position as Rooney. He’ll never be able to fit both of them on the pitch at the same time without one or the other’s being in an unfamiliar position.

        Maybe it was done with the knowledge that Rooney is leaving at the end of the season?

      Well, if they give us more money to spend each year, we can get better players and therefor have a higher probability of securing top spot in the PL and CL and FACup and COCup … Time unwasted :)

  27. The one with giroud in the catalog isn’t too bad. I mean it’s not the iconic swoosh, with their classy simplistic approach, but hey! Upwards and onwards for the AFC, on and off the pitch. Just a kit people, won’t have anything to do with the performances inside the emirates compound.

  28. That yellow splash consists of tiny pics and signatures of club legends and managers. Not minding also the Highbury emblem in the background of all those historical images

  31. Looks like Thierry had thrown up over his shirt!
    Or had a really messy curry.

    And I’m not sure about the one Giroud’s wearing either. Red and blue don’t look right.
    But hey, it’s been years since I brought a kit/shirt so it’s not like I’ll be spending any money on this one.

  44. Look at the kit deal a none top 4 club such as Liverpool got, why cant we get double the amount?

    We are top of the lesgue, on the up and have players like Ozil in our squad our kid deal should be a lot more than 30 million a year.

    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

  45. Yeah just checked Liverpool get 25million so we make 5 million more thats it?

    Last time i checked Liverpool aint even a big club anymore..

    Last time i checked finally we cant b matched only by clubs with oil rich owners.. we are top of the league and we have players like Ozil yeh we only make a bit more in our kit deal than Liverpool.

    What a insult!
