Liverpool have unveiled their new away kit for the 2017-18 season. The kit has been designed by New Balance and marks the club’s 125th anniversary.

Taking inspiration from the founding jersey worn by the side of 1892, the new kit features a bottle green and white shirt and is completed by black shorts and white socks.

The new shirt features a quartered design and re-introduces the green colour previously worn by the successful sides of 1991-92 and 1995-96 season respectively. An embroidered 125th anniversary commemorative crest with the Liverbird emblem flanked with ‘1892’ and ‘2017’, adorns the chest. There is a debossed ‘125’ to the shoulder seam tape, marking the club’s anniversary. To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames sits at the nape of the neck and the shirt is completed by a black collar.

The black shorts and white socks feature a green horizontal stripe and black trim. On the other hand, the goalkeeper kit incorporates a black design with white crest and is completed by a tonal three coloured sleeve pattern.

Commenting on the new kit, James Milner said:

“This kit looks classic – up to date, but with a nod to the past – it will be a reminder of the foundations this great club is built on every time we wear it.”

“The whole team is really proud to be a part of this huge anniversary for the Club, and we can’t wait to wear this kit next season.”

The kit will be available for purchase from 3rd June onwards as the club completes its 125th birthday on the exact same day and will be available at the LFC Stores and the club’s online store.

Fans who purchase the new kit before June 19 will receive a special certificate of authenticity and a LFC Retail voucher worth £10, as they thank the fans for their unfathomable support. Furthermore, the first 5,000 fans who purchase a full kids kit, mini kit or baby kit will also receive a free away kit bag.
