Liverpool have revealed their new kit for the 2018/19 season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have stuck with the retro feel of the current shirt for next season’s home kit. However, the Champions League finalists and New Balance have tinkered slightly with the design, adding a polo collar and two buttons.
“The kit is launched within the club’s new campaign, This Means More, which brings to life the very essence of what it means to be a Red,” according to the club.
“Following the unprecedented demand of last season’s distinctive kit – the most popular in Reds’ history – LFC and New Balance have chosen to retain the favoured Red Pepper colour and retro styling for the coming season.
“Additionally, the 2018/19 home kit features linear jacquard stripes on the front of the shirt inspired by the landmark architecture of the redeveloped Main Stand. LFC and New Balance have reintroduced a collar to the home shirt this year; a tipped two-button polo collar that gives the 18/19 shirt a lifestyle look, making it even more wearable for fans.
“To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough (where 96 Liverpool fans tragically died in 1989), the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames, sits at the nape of the neck.”
Meanwhile, the away jersey is a deep violet shade that is a striking alternative to the traditional red home strip and sees a return to the colour which last featured for the club in the 2012/13 season’s third kit.
As with the home kit, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames, sits at the nape of the neck.
And the new goalkeeper away shirt has been engineered in line with the outfield players’ jerseys and is a bold vivid cactus with black patterned sleeves and black embroidered logo and crest.
