Liverpool unveil new Nike third kit for the 2021/22 season

By Tom Cavilla

Liverpool have released their third kit for the 2021/22 season, which has been inspired by the Kop, the 1977 European Cup final and a history of previous yellow kits.

The shirt is available to pre-order today and will go on general sale for purchase in-store and online from September 21.

Liverpool last sported a yellow kit during the 2014/15 season but were associated with this colour during the 1980s having worn six different shirts of this nature in this period.

The red-and-yellow chequered trim on the collar of the shirt is inspired by the passion and energy of the famous Kop stand and the chequered flags that dominated Liverpool's section of supporters in the 1977 European Cup final victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in Rome.

On the nape of the neck, the 96-emblem encased by the eternal flames sits proudly in memory of the 96 children, women and men who lost their lives at Hillsborough.

From the 2022/23 season onwards, the 96 emblem will change to 97 in recognition of Andrew Devine, the 97th person unlawfully killed as a result of the Hillsborough disaster. Unfortunately, it was not possible for the club to make this change for the current campaign.

Third third strip has been constructed with 100% recycled polyester fabric, similarly to the home and away kit, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Fans who purchase a third kit before September 26 will receive a £10 Liverpool FC Retail voucher to spend in store or online between November 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.
