Arsenal to wear special all-white kit vs Oxford United in FA Cup for ‘No More Red’ campaign to tackle knife crime | The Sun

ARSENAL will wear a special all-white kit in the FA Cup on Monday as part of their 'No More Red' campaign to tackle knife crime.

Alongside kit manufacturers adidas, the Gunners launched the campaign last January and wore an all-white strip in the third round defeat to Nottingham Forest in 2022.

Mikel Arteta's side will continue their campaign to help keep young people safe from knife crime and youth violence against Oxford United on Monday.

While the women's team will support the initiative before their WSL game against Chelsea next Sunday.

Jonas Eidevall's side are set to wear 'No More Red' pre-match training kit ahead of the game.

The kit will not be available to buy.

Instead people working hard to make a difference in their local communities will be awarded with the all-white kit.

British boxer and Arsenal fan Anthony Yarde has once again backed the campaign, having also done so in 2022.

The amount of teenagers killed by violent youth crime dropped significantly in 2022 compared to the year before, but 11,502 knife offences were recorded in London from January to November 2022.

That was an increase compared to the same period in 2021.

Head of Arsenal in the Community Freddie Hudson said: "Last year we were proud to launch No More Red with adidas.

"It provided a unique opportunity to highlight almost four decades of our local community work that has helped to keep thousands of young people safe."

Hudson added: "Young people face multiple challenges as they grow up in today’s world and we don’t have all the answers, but we are confident our work makes a significant contribution to the lives of our participants.

"Our hard work must continue and we’re proud to be building on the achievements of the first year of No More Red by adding more social action projects and a volunteer programme that broadens the reach of this powerful initiative."

Arteta and Co travel to League One Oxford on Monday with the winner securing a place in the FA Cup fourth round.
