The Liverpool FC 2021-22 home kit is drawn from the club’s 1964 debut of its flooded red kit, borne out of belief that the deluge gave the team a psychological edge over its opponents.
Channeling the mythological sense of power and danger later described about that memorable Anfield debut, the full red kit is complemented by a glow of bright crimson, paired alongside bolted pinstripes.
The kit is rounded out by green neck tape, a fossil-palette Swoosh and crest, bright crimson sleeve cuffs and a stripe down the sock.
The new kit that players will wear on the pitch and the replica jerseys for the fans are constructed with 100 percent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
“It’s great to see the perfect blend of our heritage and Nike’s product innovation for our new home kit,” says Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk.
“Being part of the Swoosh family for years, they’ve been at the forefront of sustainable design and it goes a long way into making our sport a greener one.”
The Liverpool FC 2021-22 home kit will be worn for the first time against Crystal Palace May 23. It will be available to Nike Members May 20 and a full release will follow June 3.
