Everton Football Club today revealed their 2019/20 Umbro away kit for their upcoming English Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup seasons.
According to the club:
The dominant colour of the 2019/20 away kit – Living Coral – takes its cue from the kit worn by Everton for the Club’s first league title-winning season in 1890/91.
A salmon-coloured kit was worn by the team throughout that campaign – and came 11 years before the permanent adoption of royal blue jerseys in 1901/02.
The new shirt also features a distinctive two-tone coral sash design, echoing the design synonymous with the black and scarlet sash kit that earned Everton the nickname ‘the Black Watch’ in 1881.
In images to accompany the launch, Lucas Digne, Theo Walcott and Bernard model the new away kit at multi-purpose arts and music venue Constellations in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.
The new 2019/20 away shirt features a navy blue half-collar effect while echoing this year’s home kit with a back of neck ‘EFC’ sign-off detail.
Navy blue shorts with coral detail and coral socks with a navy blue turnover complete the new strip, which also benefits from new manufacturing techniques and material.
