Kit reveals have become a huge marketing boost to teams across the EPL and the globe really. Fans will tear bad ones apart, hail the better ones and drool over just about any piece of news too.
So, it would stand to reason that new kits are kept under lock and key by clubs all over the world — especially at a world famous club like Arsenal.
However, the new Gunners kit appears to have leaked out anyway…and Arsenal have only their video department and a player to thank for that. That’s because, according to Twitter, the Gunners posted a video to their website which included a player wearing the new 2015/16 kit before it ever was publicly released.

Let’s just say, not exactly the grand reveal of other kits. Even North London rivals Tottenham were able to keep the leaks to nil before going the marketing route in revealing the new kits last Friday.
Someone’s getting a stern talking to around the Emirates, that’s for sure.
