Liverpool have unveiled their official third kit for the 21/22 season, adopting a predominantly yellow colour scheme – something we’ve seen lots of over the years from the club.
An official press release from the club read:
Liverpool FC has revealed its third and final kit for the 2021/22 season, drawing inspiration from one of the most iconic stands in football, an iconic night in Europe and a rich history of yellow change kits.
Available to pre-order from today, the bold yellow jersey continues the club’s historic relationship with the colour that was first introduced in the 1970s and proved so popular that it quickly became part of the club’s regular alternative colour palette.
The red-and-yellow chequered trim on the collar is inspired by the passion and energy of the KOP and the chequered flags that first illuminated the Liverpool FC end of the stadium in the 1977 European Cup Final, that then set a precedent for all future big European nights. The subtle pinstripes highlight the tight bond between the club and its community.
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 to change the emblems for the 2021-22 campaign.
As with previous seasons, the club is offering a 10% discount off the price of the third kit to all LFC official members. New for this season, the Reds are extending this offer out to UK key workers via Blue Light and Network, and also to students in the UK via Student Beans. More information on eligibility and how to redeem the discount can be found here
Fans who purchase any third kit before 26 September will also receive a £10 Liverpool FC Retail voucher to spend in store or online between 1 November 2021 and 31 December 2021.
Just like this season’s home and away kits, the Reds’ third shirts that players will wear on the pitch as well as the replica jerseys for the fans have been constructed with 100% recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
The new third kit will be available for pre-order online from the official Liverpool FC online store and will go on general sale for purchase in-store and online from 21 September.
