Shirts from the 1932, 1927 and 1930 FA Cup Finals

The Arsenal shirt badge

For the first 80 years of the Club's existence our shirts were without a Club emblem, except for special matches such as FA Cup Finals.

Arsenal's first six FA Cup Finals in 1927, 1930, 1932, 1936, 1950 and 1952 saw a Club badge used on the Arsenal shirt for each of these high-profile one-off occasions.

The 1967/68 season saw a white cannon added to the famous red shirt for the first time on a regular basis.

This remained virtually unchanged for 22 years except for the addition of the A-F-C 'cannonballs' in 1978.

The full 'Victoria Concordia Crescit' crest was introduced to the shirts at the start of the 1990-91 title winning season and underwent several cosmetic changes over the next 11 years before finally being replaced with the current crest in 2002.
