Nike Creates Commemorative Shirt to Mark FA Cup Victory and 20-year Partnership
May 17, 2014
Nike has worked with Arsenal FC to create a commemorative shirt following the Club’s 2014 FA Cup victory, celebrating the 20 –year partnership between the club and the Swoosh.
The shirt, which uses the current 2013-14 home kit as its base, incorporates a unique design that is inspired by a selection of iconic Arsenal kits from the past two decades.
As well as featuring industry-leading innovation, each Nike shirt throughout the 20-year partnership is evocative of key moments in Arsenal’s rich history – from the kit worn during the 2003-04 ‘Invincibles’ season, to the celebratory redcurrant shirt that marked the final farewell to Highbury in 2005.
Marc van Pappelendam, VP/GM Nike U.K. & Ireland commented:
“Nike has enjoyed a wonderful partnership with Arsenal Football Club. The kits that Nike has produced for the Club over the last twenty years tell a story; a timeline of quality that will be remembered for a long time to come.”
Limited edition, individually numbered artwork prints of the shirt will be created and sold, with a number available to purchase at Nike Phenomenal House at the Sorting Office. London's Phenomenal House will open its doors to the public from May 26-31 for a unique, diverse and action-packed celebration of fearless football and London’s love of the game.
The shirt itself is not for sale. It will be on display at the Phenomenal House from May 26-30, then at NikeTown London from May 31, before moving to its permanent home in the Arsenal Football Club Museum from June 30.
