Liverpool launch new home kit for 2018-19 season

By Adam McKendry

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and young star Trent Alexander-Arnold have launched the club's new home kit for the 2018-19 season.

The entire strip is being marketed as 'red pepper' by manufacturers New Balance for the second year running following the success of the 2017-18 jersey, which was Liverpool's most popular and best-selling in history.

This year's shirt, which will be worn for the first time in Liverpool's final game of the season against Brighton, includes a retro collar with white trim, with a single white stripe extending from the collar along the shoulder.

There is also a small 96 underneath the collar to commemorate the lives of those lost in the Hillsborough disaster.

"Our kit isn’t just something we wear to play, it’s part of who we are as team, we feel immensely proud when pulling on the Liverpool home shirt, it means more to us than you could even imagine; after all, Liverpool Football Club is like no other," said captain Henderson.

"I have no doubt that our fans will love the new kit, and will wear it with pride when supporting us this coming season."

The club's all-yellow goalkeeper jersey was also revealed, modelled by Loris Karius as opposed to Simon Mignolet, which features a black pattern stretching from the collar all the way down both sleeves.

30 lucky fans who pre-order the home shirt will be given it for free as a thank you from Liverpool, while the club will also donate 125 shirts to local schools in order to mark their 125th anniversary.

All of the kits will go on sale on May 11.
