The club organised a Fan Zone in King George’s Square in the city at 5pm local time, at which Didi Hamann and Ian Rush warmed up the crowd before the big reveal.
The new away kit sports a red trim and collar and is the third Liverpool kit to be launched under the New Balance brand.
The kit incorporates NB Dry, technology that helps keep the body cool and dry whilst being active. The moisture wicking fabric releases moisture away from the body, making it fast drying, and it is anatomically fitted to form around the player’s body shape for ease of movement.
Finished with mesh panelling under the arms, the design aims to help airflow around the body. Twin needle stitching runs around the circumference of the shirts hem and twin heat transfer tipping to the cuff gives a seam-free finish and to prevent abrasion.
Mignolet told the club’s official website, “The New Balance away kit looks great and the team are aware of past years where the club has had many successes wearing white away kits. Hopefully this kit can bring us luck away from home next season.”
Whilst Billy Hogan, chief commercial officer at Liverpool, said, “We are very excited to launch the white away kit in partnership with New Balance here in Brisbane as part of our pre-season tour.
“I believe they have delivered a powerful, fresh take on an important part of the club’s history.”
