Liverpool FC has revealed its third and final kit for the 2021-22 season, drawing inspiration from the Kop, an iconic European night and a rich history of yellow change kits.
Available to pre-order now, the bold yellow jersey continues the club’s historic relationship with the colour that was used on a handful of occasions from the mid-1950s and proved so popular that by the end of the 1970s, it quickly became part of the club’s regular alternate 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 Reds’ end of the stadium at the 1977 European Cup final, which 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 those 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 per cent discount off the price of the third kit to all LFC official members. New for this season, we 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 shirt before September 26 will also receive a £10 Liverpool FC Retail voucher to spend in-store or online between November 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.
Just like this season’s home and away shirts, the third jerseys that the players will wear on the pitch and the replica shirts for fans have been constructed with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
The new third kit is available for pre-order online here now and will go on general sale for purchase in-store and online from September 21.
