Liverpool FC have unveiled their new third kit for the forthcoming season.
Designed by kit manufacturers Warrior, it sports a rather expressive purple, black and white design on the shirts, with white shorts and hooped socks.
The Liverpool players will be wearing the new kit for their training session today, Thursday, at Melwood.
The kit will be worn for the away Premier League games at Stoke, Sunderland, Southampton and one other, along with domestic Cup away games.
NEW LIVERPOOL FC THIRD KIT COMPLETES BOLD COLLECTION
Warrior strengthens Club’s fashion heritage by channeling popular 1990s design
Building on Liverpool FC’s history of iconic, statement-making kits, the thought process for the latest design stems from the Club’s 1995/96 away strip.
“The third kit completes a strong and dynamic range of new season looks for LFC,” says Richard Wright, head of Warrior Football. “The kit not only delivers a technical story, but also looks striking and unique on the pitch.”
Set over a dominant black base with striking white and purple trim details, the harlequin paneling featured on the shirt’s front has been reworked into three contemporary tiles and consists of the full colour palette.
Contrast panels on the shirt’s sleeves reflect detailing in the socks, while colour-blocked shorts work to balance the overall look.
In line with the home and away versions, an embroidered Liver Bird sits prominently as the Club crest, while two commemorative Eternal Flames and a 96 logo are positioned on the nape of the neck.
Constructed using War-Tech, Warrior’s revolutionary apparel technology system, the away kit is powered by breathable, moisture-wicking War-Tech fabric. Four-way stretch mesh paneling under the arms and across the back of the shirt facilitates optimum ventilation, allowing for added comfort and temperature control in core heat areas.
