The statement in part read, “The No More Red collective is a group of young people who have been recognized for the positive impacts they are making on their community.

“We believe every young person deserves the opportunity to express themselves, the opportunity to exist within a safe environment and the opportunity to live free from fear of violence.

“Following our launch of No More Red, our hope is that our white shirt will become a symbol of positivity in the community, given to individuals and organizations who are giving back to the community and creating a positive environment for young people.”

The Emirate Stadium is located in London and is known to be a neighbourhood notorious for knife attacks.

In the past year, over 10,000 knife crimes were recorded and the No More Red initiative by the Gunners is aimed to reduce those numbers drastically.

On Sunday, January 9, 2022, the Gunners will wear the new jersey in their FA Cup third-round fixture with Nottingham Forest.
