Today New Balance has officially revealed the new 2018/19 Liverpool FC third kit. The kit has been launched as part of the new LFC campaign for 2018/19, “This Means More” which encapsulates the feelings all LFC fans around the world share when they pull on the LFC shirt.
New Balance and LFC have collaborated with club partner Konami to reveal the kit via footage of the LFC players wearing the new kit in Konami’s upcoming Pro Evolutio Soccer 2019 video game.
The Liverpool 2018/19 NB third jersey has been engineered using innovative NB DRY technology. The Jersey wicks moisture away from the skin to help keep players fresh and dry from first to final whistle. The 2018/19 third kit pays homage to LFC’s strip during the 1980s with a Grey Violet body and a Steel gradient print. The jersey also features Racing Red accents, through top shoulder bonded tape and red crest and NB logo, as well as featuring a crew neck collar with insert.
To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames sits at the nape of the neck.
The Grey shorts complete the Liverpool 2018/19 third uniform, featuring a concealed stretch fabric insert which also runs down the side seam of the shirt. The tonal hoop socks feature an elasticated ankle zone and rib Achilles region with cushioned protection. An additional cushioned heel zone and vented cushioned footbed and toe section have been designed to help players play with power, comfort and extra support.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum said: “This third kit completes a standout collection of NB performance kits for LFC. The kits have been designed to support the team to play at their best and pays tribute to the heritage of the club. We’re sure this will be a strip that the players and fans will wear with pride.”
Liverpool FC winger Sadio Mané said: “We had a strong campaign in 2017/18, and we already can’t wait for the new season to begin. I’m really looking forward to stepping out onto the pitch and playing in the kit – it’s a really strong look.”
