On the back of Liverpool recently announcing a multi-year kit deal with Nike, plenty of concept kits have been developed and posted online.
The details of the deal that has been struck between Liverpool and Nike have been well-documented, but here is a little bit of background information.
Liverpool’s current suppliers for the 2019-20 season, New Balance, took the club to court over a renewal clause in their contract late last year.
New Balance were looking to stay on as the kit supplier for the club, and they had plenty of reason to fight to stay on, as they had been quite successful in producing Liverpool’s kits.
However, Liverpool had other plans as they were looking to part ways due to the five-year deal Nike had presented. Liverpool won the dispute, which meant the club were free to sign with Nike last week.
Come June 1 2020, Liverpool will reportedly earn a flat fee of £30 million a year from Nike. On the back of the deal being announced, plenty of people are getting creative by developing concept kits.
Below are some absolute beauties which have recently been posted online.

The above kits are superb. I don’t think any Liverpool supporter would have any issues if these were the kits for next season.
It is highly unlikely that the kits Nike are producing will look like the above. Footy Headlines, who are very good at giving the public an idea of what the kits will look like before the club officially release them, have produced a colour scheme for Liverpool’s 2020-21 kits which is different to the concept kits pictured above.
Regardless of that being the case, the concept kits within this article are very good.
