Liverpool have launched their new home kit for the 2018/19 season, with the club posting official images and videos online as they release it for pre-order.
The kit was launched
The specifics of the design were not a surprise to many, with images of the new kit leaked online prior to the official release.
According to the club site: "
"The style the typeface used on the main stadium signage at Anfield as well as that used on street signs throughout the city of Liverpool. In addition, depth is added to the numbering by incorporating the bold drop shadow seen in the seating within the stadium itself."
Alongside the images, the club released videos showing the city of Liverpool on a match day, with a range of players including Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane getting changed into the new strip.
"Our kit isn’t just something we wear to play – it is part of who we are as a team,” said Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
Reacting to the first official images and video, Reds fans were generally positive but some had reservations about the collar and the fact that they would no longer be turning out in 2017/18's wildly popular design.
