Everton have launched their new 2021/22 home shirt by Hummel, which is a vibrant design inspired by the ‘dazzle camouflage’ patterns that were painted on naval ships in Liverpool’s city docks during the First World War. Everton will also be moving to a new dockside stadium in 2024.
Dazzle camouflage features contrasting shapes, tones and colours, with such patterns applied to ships to help disguise their size, speed, distance and direction from enemies, making them harder to be accurately fired upon.
Everton have opted for a two-tone blue dazzle camouflage, which is complemented by white and yellow trim. The shirt also features the instantly recognisable Hummel chevrons on the sleeves.
On sale from 15 July but available to pre-order from the club’s official online shop already, it will be the first time that Everton fans can choose to buy either the men’s or women’s replica shirt.
The men’s team jersey is sponsored by car sales brand Cazoo, but the women’s team have their own shirt sponsorship deal with Russian telecoms company MegaFon. Each version is available in both men’s and women’s sizes, giving fans plenty of choice.
Seamus Coleman, James Rodriguez, Allan, Richarlison, Izzy Christiansen and Danielle Turner have all been involved in the launch material of the new shirt.
The Toffees have also released a new home goalkeeper kit that could well divide opinion. To be worn by Jordan Pickford and Sandy MacIver, the black jersey features abstract yellow stripes on the front, as well as single blue stripe, giving it as very vibrant look.
Everton finished 10th in the Premier League and fifth in the WSL last season, with the ambitious club hoping to see improvement for both of its team in this new campaign that kicks off soon.
