Yesterday, Liverpool unveiled their new away shirt for the up and coming 2020-21 campaign.
The design on the shirt is inspired by leaves and flyers from around the city promoting its musical history. The shirt also includes on the back of the neck the internal flame in tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
On the new away shirt, Nike’s VP Football Apparel Scott Munson told the club’s official website the following: ”The away shirt gives you more freedom and we created a bold statement. We think its a representative of the confidence of the team, and the youth of the city.”
It is unlike any other previous away shirt that has been produced for the club. Liverpool’s away kits over the years tend to be either white, yellow or black.

🚨 OFFICIAL: Liverpool reveal the new Nike away kit for the 20-21 season. Jordan Henderson: “I’m a massive fan of the away kit. I really love the design and how it has been influenced by the city and specific aspects of the club. I can’t wait to play in it next season.” #lfc
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Away kits can always be held with fantastic memories attached because they are rarer throughout the season.
With Nike using similar templates for most of their kits last season, this feels like a new step for the company as well as Liverpool.
It is a kit which is unlikely to be redone around European football and it is unlike any other away kit Liverpool have worn.
As it has been stated, the design and detail of the kit is very specific to the city of Liverpool.
