ARSENAL have confirmed their new home kit will go on sale later this month.

And the Gunners will wear it for the first time on the final day of the season against Everton.

Club director Josh Kroenke made the declaration during the Arsenal Fans’ Forum at Highbury House on Tuesday.

The Gunners' new home jersey will be available for purchase from May 19.

The shirt is inspired by Arsenal’s classic top from the mid-1990s.

And it includes a polo collar, plus a lightning zig-zag design.

Arsenal fans will get their first glimpse of it on the players on May 22, when they host Everton at the Emirates.

Also discussed at the meeting were plans for safe standing, as well as the season ticket waiting list and a potential tour of Australia in 2023.

Arsenal are currently battling rivals Tottenham for the final Champions League spot in the table.

But regardless of the outcome, Kroenke believes the campaign has been a success.

“It makes a real difference, especially for the young players, and we all want the same thing which is to be back at the top competing for the biggest trophies.

“We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us. We have plans in place to continue to strengthen the squad. Now having match day revenue back and having fans in the stadium has been great.
