Arsenal FC, the English Premier League club, has revived its „No More Red“ campaign for the upcoming FA Cup games, aimed at raising awareness about knife violence. The men’s team will wear all-white kits on Sunday, January 7th for the third round of the Emirates FA Cup against Liverpool. The women’s team will also sport the kits on Sunday, January 14th during the fourth round of the Adobe Women’s FA Cup against Watford.
The 2024 version of the kits features all club, sponsor, and manufacturer logos in white on a white background, symbolically removing the famous red color that Arsenal is known for. The aim is to draw attention to the knife crime epidemic in the United Kingdom and the efforts of organizations working to ensure the safety of young people.
„No More Red provides a unique opportunity to highlight nearly four decades of our local community work that has helped ensure the safety of thousands of young people.“ – Freddie Hudson, Arsenal in the Community
The completely white kits will not be available for public sale, but fans can purchase a new custom Community t-shirt with 100% of the retail price being donated to No More Red charity partners.
Additionally, Arsenal is supporting No More Red in 2024 through the opening of a new community field, continuing mentor-led social action projects, and its volunteer incentive program with charity partners.
