Arsenal Puma kit: Puma to release three new shirts every season
Arsenal were one of the last Premier League clubs to offer two-year kit cycles
Arsenal shirts now have a life span of one season, it has been confirmed.
The Gunners were one of the last clubs in the Premier League to offer two-year kit cycles to supporters, but with the new £30m a year Puma deal which has taken over from Nike, the club can now change all three of their strips every season.
The decision was motivated by the high demand that exists amongst supporters for new strips each year.
The kits were launched last week at Puma's flagship store on Carnaby Street, modelled by players Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini.
