Nike and Liverpool F.C. have revealed their third kit for the upcoming 2020/21 season.
Taking inspiration from the iconic European nights played at Anfield, the third kit’s design is heavily influenced by the array of chequered flags and banners that decorate the Kop stand for each home game in European competition – a tradition heavily embedded in the club’s history, which has helped create the unrivalled atmosphere at the ground.
For young Liverpudlians who have learnt to sing and sway in unison with their fellow reds, for opposition players and fans that have so often been stumped by the atmosphere of Anfield, the Kop has grown into a cultural icon of its own. Liverpool’s dominance of European football in the ‘70s and ‘80s gained the stand a reputation of its intimidating, raucous atmosphere - paving the new way for a new generation of fans to follow suit with homemade banners, flags and off-the-cuff chants.  
The third kit pays homage to such times. Made up in a black and anthracite check pattern, combined with crimson side panelling, the shirt is the third instalment to their new partnership with Nike. The V-neck collar leads onto the delivery of a red embroidered badge made up with the ever-present Liver bird.
The Nike Liverpool F.C. Third kit will be available in-store and online from 15 SEPT 20.
