Fans who wanted to purchase Arsenal’s designer kits will soon be out of luck.
The bespoke away kit, created by adidas Creative Director Stella McCartney, was nearly sold out on Arsenal’s team shop as of early Saturday morning.
The team will debit the kit for an away Women’s Super League game at Manchester United on Oct. 6, marking the first time Arsenal’s women’s team will wear a different kit than the men.
“It’s so special to be marking this with a collection as playful and bold as this one,” Arsenal star Alessia Russo said in a press release. “For me, football has always been about having fun and getting creative – it’s why I got into it as a young girl and it’s what inspires me today.
“I love that this collection represents that, and I can’t wait to wear the shirt with pride on match day.”

As of early Saturday morning, there was only one size of the youth kit available, and the regular fit had only large and smaller sizes left. The authentic women’s and men’s fits were both sold out.
The eight-piece collection includes a shirt made with AEROREADY technology, which combines sweat-wicking and absorbent materials to ensure a dry feel.
“I love that the away jersey taps into the exciting intersection of fashion and football through its elevated geometric print and captivating hues – with technical performance materials at the core,” McCartney said. “It’s important that both players and fans alike can playfully express themselves as they move on and off the pitch, and we hope this bold, new collection can play a part in that.”
The men’s Arsenal team will wear the jerseys as a pre-match warmup before its game against Manchester City on Oct. 8.
