Explained: Why Arsenal will wear all-white kit at home vs Liverpool in FA Cup Round 3

Arsenal will host Liverpool in the third round of their FA Cup tie at the Emirates, in what promises to be a huge clash between the two Premier League title contenders early in the tournament. And continuing their yearly tradition, they will be shelving their traditional red and white colours for a special all-white kit to raise awareness against knife crime as part of the No More Red campaign. 

This is the third year of the No More Red campaign, with Arsenal wearing an all-white home jersey for the first time in their 138 year history.

The club announced that the white shirt will never go on sale, rather than a bespoke community version will be available from January 29, and 100% of the £30 retail price will be donated to the following charities: The Arsenal Foundation, Abianda (Abi Billinghurst & Associates); Octopus Community Network Limited; Box Up Crime; Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation; Don’t Stab Your Future; Ben Kinsella Trust; Steel Warriors; Copenhagen Youth Project; and St Giles Trust.

The women’s team will also participate in the campaign by wearing the all-white kit when they face Watford in the FA Cup on January 14.

After being launched in 2022, both of Arsenal’s No More Red shirt matches were away games. In the inaugural year, they were defeated by Nottingham Forest, before winning 3-0 against Oxford last year – both of which were in Round 3 of the FA Cup.
