Liverpool reveal new kit to mark 125 year history
Liverpool have revealed their new home kit which commemorates the club’s 125 year anniversary. Not only was it a brand new strip – a new crest has also been included.
It’s great to see an 80’s retro design on the kit and something that will symbolise a time of Liverpool dominance. Maybe next year really is our year!! The darker ‘Shankly red adds a touch of class – with white trim around the collar inspired by Rome in 1984, as well as at the end of the sleeves.
To really commemorate the anniversary the new top will come with a brand new, one-season only badge, which the club will use from now until the end of the 2017/18 season.
Images of Liverpool’s new strip flooded all across social media on Thursday morning, as the club’s relationship continues with kit supplier New Balance.
In a statement on the club’s official website published on Thursday morning, the club said of the crest: “The new crest now comes into immediate use across our official website, social media platforms and commercial activity marking the 125-year anniversary, until the end of the 2017-18 season.
“A pure, uncluttered approach was taken, applying the dates of the anniversary and ‘125 Years’ to the existing crest in a simple format, highlighting the historic milestone for the club.
“The unveiling of the commemorative crest coincides with the launch of the team’s New Balance home kit for 2017-18, which features a commemorative Liver bird crest on the shirt that follows the same design principles.
“The club’s 125th anniversary will be celebrated on Saturday June 3, when a season of special activities will get under way to mark the milestone in Reds history.”
