Liverpool have launched their away kit for next season, the second of three strips celebrating the club’s 125th anniversary.
The club say the 2017/18 away top “continues the theme of celebrating iconic periods and kits from Liverpool’s 125-year history”, with this quartered green and white design taking inspiration from their founding jersey worn in 1892.
Liverpool sported a similar design in their 1991/92 and 1995/96 away jerseys, with the new kit featuring an embroidered 125th anniversary commemorative crest, the Liverbird emblem flanked with ‘1892’ and ‘2017’, as well as a debossed ‘125’ to the shoulder seam tape.
“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,” James Milner said.
“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 strip also has black shorts and white socks with a green horizontal stripe and black trim.
A Liverpool statement on the launch of the new kit added: “To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames sits at the nape of the neck.”
