Last season’s English Premier League runners-up Liverpool Football Club have followed the recent release of their new home jersey with the unveiling of a yellow 2014/15 Warrior away kit via Google+ on Wednesday. Both shirts will be available at World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports and Kitbag.
According to Reds gear provider Warrior Sports: Warrior has reinvigorated a Liverpool FC classic, the iconic yellow kit. Evoking memories of the club’s rich history, it’s a kit to support the club’s growth into a new era of success.
The kit includes several contemporary design details and technical innovations to stand up to the demands of the modern game.
In line with the new home kit, a modern crew neck collar is designed for freedom of movement and comfort. The two embroidered Eternal Flames alongside a 96 logo are located on the nape of the shirt’s neck to commemorate the tragic events at Hillsborough in 1989.
The shirt is engineered for a superior performance. The main body of the kit is dominated with a powerful yellow, with contrasting red cut and sewn panels that deliver a 360’ design aesthetic, following the contours of the body.
The kit’s moisture-wicking War-Tech fabric uses responsive technology that helps keep players focused on their performance. Four-way stretch mesh paneling under the arms and across the shoulders of the shirt facilitates optimum ventilation while allowing for added comfort and temperature control in core heat areas, helping to regulate body temperature throughout the match.
Under the leadership of Brendan Rodgers, LFC are returning to their best and Warrior is fully embracing the team’s winning philosophy with this new kit.
After an eight year absence, the manager expressed his feelings towards a return of the club classic, “We’re looking to build a new era at the club, while remembering this club’s great history. Special moments in a yellow shirt include the FA Cup final in 2001. This shirt is one the fans and the players will respond to.”
Head of Warrior Football, Richard Wright believes this shirt will stand the test of time and become an iconic piece in the ever growing history of this club.
“The central theme of the kit pays tribute to the unique history of success for LFC, whilst updating the style to be eye-catching and refined. Many Liverpool fans remember Dalglish wearing the famous yellow kit, arms aloft, embraced by Sammy Lee; it is a poignant moment in the club’s history. This shirt not only has the technical elements for the players to perform to their best but it will help paint the vivid pictures which will stick long in the memory of fans for years to come.”
Liverpool player Lucas Leiva commented, “I love the look of this kit, for me the stand out Liverpool away kits were always the yellow ones.’
