The Gunners have been ordered to wear their yellow kit for the meeting in north London by Uefa because the sleeves on their home shirt clash with the visitors' all-white away jersey.
Basel do not have a third kit.
A message on the Gunners website confirming the kit news noted Arsenal have been in a similar situation before.
It read: "Supporters will recall that it's not the first time Arsenal have worn an away strip at home.
"In season 1998/99, the official Uefa kit policy dictated that any clash in first choice kits led to the home team changing shirts – hence we wore our away kit at home to Lens for example."
