Liverpool have revealed their new yellow and red third kit for the current season in a return to some of their more iconic colours from their past.
The colours are synonymous with the 1980s and some of the iconic teams of Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish, who wore six different strips of that combination during the period.
The club states the red-and-yellow chequered trim on the collar of the new kit is inspired by the similarly patterned flags on the Kop.
The flags first appeared in the LFC end in the 1977 European Cup final victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in Rome and are now a staple of European nights at Anfield.
On the nape of the neck, the 96 emblem sits proudly in memory of the people 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.
Fans who buy the third kit before September 26 will receive a £10 Liverpool FC Retail voucher to spend in-store or online between November 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.
