Arsenal's stars donned the club's new kit for the official launch.

Arsenal's stars have unveiled the club's new kit, at an event at the Emirates Stadium attended by thousands of fans.

Kit manufacturers Puma hosted the launch, with Gunners legend Thierry Henry introducing the players kitted out in the new attire.

Santi Cazorla, Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Tomas Rosicky were all presented, in a classic red and white strip, 

Cazorla told he was thrilled the attendance of supporters for the kit launch. He said: "With being at the Emirates this evening and seeing so many of them chanting and supporting us was really great. There was so much passion in the crowd, it reminds us how lucky we are to have these supporters."

The Spaniard was one of the star players at the launch, and would surely have been joined by record signing Mesut Ozil, and Alexis Sanchez, had it not been for international commitments.

It's tough for Puma to revolutionise an Arsenal shirt so bound by history to being red with white stripes, and nor is there any reason to veer away from tradition, but it's clear design appeared to go down well among supporters.

Notable was the presence of Tomas Rosicky, who recently saw the option of an extension on his contract exercised, despite starting only five Premier League games last season.
