You can now wear Piccadilly line moquette clothing, if you don’t mind them also having a football logo on them as well.

The shirts are a collaboration between adidas and Arsenal football club, which sits close to the Arsenal tube station on the Piccadilly line, and they are the prematch jersey and warm top, which the players will wear to warm up in ahead of games between now and the end of the season.

The range celebrates Arsenal station – the only Underground station to be named after a football club, following its change from Gillespie Road in 1932. This came after concerted lobbying from visionary manager Herbert Chapman, who wanted to make it much easier for supporters to instantly know how to get to see the team and to cement the identity of the club into the local area.

There are five pieces in the range which also includes a youth jersey – matching the adult shirts – as well as a reversible padded vest and pant – both of which have navy base colour, and subtle Arsenal tube station sign off.

As part of the campaign, adidas has also teamed up with London-based artist and Arsenal fan Reuben Dangoor to create and design a special, limited-edition Oyster card. Consumers can have the chance of claiming the card, which is pre-loaded with £15, by purchasing an article in the range via the adidas app. There is also a chance to win one via a first-come-first-served free to enter opportunity to adidas Creator Club members.

The pre-match jersey will be first seen on the men’s team in tonight’s (20th Jan) football match between Arsenal and Liverpool in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg at The Emirates.

The range is on sale now from Arsenal football club’s online shop.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
