​Liverpool F.C.'s new away kit pays homage to city's ‘90s dance music scene

Liverpool F.C. has unveiled its brand new away kit for the 2022-2023 season honouring the pioneering efforts of Liverpool’s '90s dance music scene.

The new shirts, revealed in a campaign video by the football team, feature a ‘dizzying’ design with wavy, kaleidoscopic print all over. The iridescent design sits on top of a white background in a marbled print.

The kit was first debuted at the men’s pre-season fixture yesterday, July 12, in Bangkok, where the team lost 4-0 to fellow English giants Manchester United.

Speaking on the new design, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said: “We’re excited for the fans to see the new away kit from Nike.

“It’s not often we get to wear a jersey on the day of the reveal, so it will be a special moment for the squad to show off the new design in our first pre-season fixture.”

According to Liverpool F.C.’s official website, each player’s name and number will be encased in a white block on the back to 'emphasise the individuality of each player.
