Liverpool FC’s new away kit for the 2018-19 season was launched today.
The New Balance design comes in a deep violet shade, which has never been used before. Although purple has never been the predominant color of a Liverpool kit, the 2012/13 third kit included purple highlights, including one purple mismatched sock.
The kit adopts the same jacquard linear graphic as on the front of next term’s home shirt, which takes inspiration from the architecture of Anfield’s Main Stand. It is also accentuated by orange branding that highlights key details throughout the strip, in a nod to last season’s third kit.
The confirmation is no real surprise given the conceptual art had been leaked months ago, and in the past few days the leaks turned into a flood.
The goalkeeper away shirt – as seen below – has been designed in line with the outfield players’ jerseys, with black patterned sleeves, embroidered logo and crest.
Liverpool FC defender Virgil van Dijk said:
“As a player the most important thing is how the shirt feels and performs. This kit gives us confidence to play to the best of our ability away from home. We have the best travelling support in football and I’m excited to run out in front of our fans wearing this strip.”
