Liverpool Reveal 125th Anniversary Home Kit

Thu 27th Apr 2017 | Marketing & PR

Liverpool FC has today revealed its new home kit for the 2017/18 season to fans which celebrates the club’s 125th anniversary.

The kit was revealed in a film about four fans that embody what it is to be ‘Pure Liverpool FC’.

The four Reds, each with their own unique story, were surprised by a visit from one of their LFC heroes and were the first to receive the LFC home kit.

The new home kit pays homage to the club’s 125th anniversary, revealing the commemorative crest for the first time. The Liverbird emblem flanked with ‘1892’ and ‘2017’ is embroidered onto the breast of the shirt.

Liverpool FC, First Team Captain, Jordan Henderson said: “There is a huge sense of pride that comes with wearing an LFC shirt and it is always an honour, but this kit is special.

“Our 125th Anniversary is a great moment for us all to celebrate our heritage and this kit really reflects that, especially as it features the anniversary crest - we’ll wear it with pride.”

The design itself is rooted in LFC’s history and takes inspiration from previous kits, such as the famous ‘Rome’ 1984 Home Shirt.

Returning to a darker ‘Shankly red’, the shirt incorporates tonal pin stripes which acknowledge the Liverpool FC teams of the early 80’s. 

To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames sits at the nape of the neck.
 
The jersey features a debossed ‘125’ to the shoulder seam tape and is framed with a v-neck white tipped collar, and is completed by red shorts and red socks with a white loop trim.
 
General Manager of New Balance Football, Richard Wright said: “This kit is a testament to the periods and events that have made Liverpool FC the club it is today.

“This year’s home kit is the perfect blend of heritage and modern technology, creating a look that is visually stunning and performs at the highest level.”
