Liverpool have launched their new 2020/21 Nike third shirt for next 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 for each home game in European competition – a tradition heavily embedded in the club’s history and one which helps to create the unrivalled atmosphere on the Kop.
The third kit pays homage to those occasions with a black and anthracite check pattern on the front and back of the shirt, combined with crimson side panelling and a V-shape neckline. Black and anthracite can also be seen on the sleeves to seamlessly blend the colourway together.
To complete the kit, the shorts have been designed in plain black, while again bringing to life crimson red detailing in the form of the club crest and Nike swoosh. Black and anthracite check socks with crimson red detailing tie the whole strip together.
Demonstrating the passion and atmosphere of the Kop, representatives from key supporter group Spion Kop 1906 take their place on the third kit unveiling images, along with local supporter and fashion designer Nadia Atique.
