Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard have revealed their clubs new home kit for next season. Confirming the leaks were correct, the new kit supplied by Warrior Sports
reveals a traditional red coloured display along with white trim on the sleeves, sides and shoulders of the shirt. The new home kit tunes into the heart of LFC’s identity with their
iconic colour scheme whilst adding modern technology and construction into it.
Continuing their long tradition, the shorts and socks will also be red featuring white trim. Unlike last season’s home shirt yellow trim has reverted back to white apart from
the Liverbird logo. A new geometric weave is added to this shirt which further enhances the striking appearance.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said, “The 1960s was such a defining era for this club. Sir Roger Hunt, Ian St John, Ron Yeats …the list of Liverpool FC legends that played under
Shankly goes on and on. For the players to wear a shirt that has taken inspiration from such a successful period for the club, can act as a reminder that they can bring those
glory years back to Liverpool Football Club.”
Like last season’;s shirt two embroidered Eternal Flames alongside a 96 logo are located on the nape of the shirt’s neck to commemorate the events at Hillsborough in 1989.
The Standard Chartered sponsor will again feature on the Liverpool kits after they had signed a new deal in July last year which is set to expire at the end of the 2015-16 season.
Featured on the shirt is subtle pinstripe lines which run from the collar down to the bottom of the shirt.
General Manager of Warrior Football, Richard Wright said, “As in previous years, we’ve worked closely with the club throughout the design process of the new kit.
It’s a great clean-cut, modern kit which has the club’s history at its core; an inherent quality across our LFC kit collection for the 2014/15 season.”
