Is your Arsenal shirt cracking?

Cracked ShirtThere has been a problem with the logo on the 2006/07 home shirt for sponsors ‘Fly Emirates’ cracking which has been caused by a fault in the manufacture, that affected only some batches of shirts. In fact there were two problems, ‘delamination’ when the logo itself starts to peel off from the shirt and secondly the cracking of the logo itself.

There have been two issues. The first, “delamination”, is when the logo actually starts to peel off from the shirt. The second concerns the cracking of the logo.

Arsenal have said “although we have been aware of the delamination issue since early August, this was restricted to a single manufacturing batch and as soon as we were aware of the issue we stopped selling the affected shirts. More recently we have become aware of the cracking issue which we are advised only occurs on certain shirts after one or more washings. It was when we became aware of this that we withdrew all home shirts from sale last Friday. “Although we are assured only a limited number of batches of shirts are affected, we suggest that all of our fans who have bought a 2006/07 home shirt check it for these problems.”

If you find a problem with your logo and bought it from a Nike retail store or from the club shop at Emirates, you can fill in this online form here. New stock is being made available and they will exchange the faulty shirt. If you bought your shirt from another retailer or online you should contact that retailer/website directly.

Arsenal are not having a new home shirt for the 2007/08 season, but due to this fault discovered on the shirts they will not be available again to purchase until July 7th when they will relaunch.
