Arsenal are all set to don a special white jersey in their next FA Cup clash against Nottingham Forest, ditching their trademark red jerseys. It is to promote 'No More Red' initiative.

Over 10,000 knife crime offences have been registered in London in one year from June 2020 to June 2021. The last year also saw the highest number of teenage murders in London, most of which were knife attack.

The 'No More Red' initiative is part of Arsenal's community service through which the club will create a positive space for young people and bring talented individuals making positive difference in the spotlight.

The club has also announced that these white jerseys will never be on sale and that fans and people can only win it by making a positive contribution to the society.
