Liverpool and New Balance have launched their 2016/17 third jersey, the latest in the “Made For Liverpool” campaign.
The Reds revealed their latest inside Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, CA as part of the club’s summer tour of the United States. Manager Jurgen Klopp attended the reveal with James Milner, Adam Lallana and Simon Mignolet.
“It’s definitely an eye-catching kit, and it will stand out on the pitch,” said club vice-captain James Milner. “It’s always a thrill to represent LFC and it’ll be exciting to wear these colours whilst we do that. The key thing for the players is that it’s comfortable and this kit is part of a great collection for next year.”
With a booming green hue coined by New Balance as “Toxic Thunder,” this jersey is a bright green with a dark grey shoulder yoke that extends to the sleeves, and trimmed in white. Beneath the yoke are stripes in a mesh pattern. The crew collar has a thin green stripe around the back of the collar.
The back of the collar has the Hillsborough 96 memorial logo placed under the trim in the bright green.
The shirt’s interior has part of a famous quote from former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier. “Liverpool players must play like a lion” as a tagline at the back.
Liverpool’s Liverbird crest is etched on the chest in dark grey.
The side panels on the shirt have distinct mesh patterns, with two dark grey hexagonal shapes on each side.
The full kit comes complete with bright green shorts and socks. Standard Chartered Bank is the shirt sponsor once more.
The 2016/17 Liverpool FC third jersey will be available soon at World Soccer Shop.
