Liverpool Football Club have recently signed a multi-year kit deal with Nike, which means concept kits have been created.
The deal that has been struck between Liverpool and Nike was not a straightforward one. Liverpool’s suppliers for the 2019-20 season, New Balance, took the club to court over a renewal clause in their contract late last year.
Having had success producing Liverpool’s kits over recent seasons, New Balance were looking to stay on as the kit supplier for the club.
Liverpool were looking to part ways with New Balance due to the offer (five-year deal) Nike had presented. The club won the dispute, which means as of next season, Nike will be producing Liverpool’s kits.
This has got the Anfield faithful excited, and one could say the same about the graphic designers, who have been developing concept kits recently for Liverpool’s 2020-21 season.
Derkam Artz, a freelance graphic designer, has created two very impressive concepts kits. Many supporters would arguably have no problem if the two kits developed by Derkam Artz were the home and away kits for next season.
The gold kit is our personal favorite of the two. The club would be getting a number of orders if they developed a kit which was similar to the above.
There is some pressure on Nike, but they do have experience in kit manufacturing, meaning they should do a good job for Liverpool.
