New LFC kit goes back to 1984

Retro Rome design to help players stay cool

Published on May 2nd 2013.


New LFC kit goes back to 1984

JUST as it's never too late in life to put a band back together - or expect an early morning knock from Operation Yewtree - so it's never too late to revisit past glories. 

The new Liverpool Football Club home strip, goes back to the triumphs of European Cup victory in Rome and is based on the shirt of the 1983/84 season.

This was a year when the entire world was wearing Nasher Says Relax T-shirts, after the controversial hit by city group Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Who could know that almost 30 years later Liverpool FC would have a different kind of Gnasher in its band?

In other news, rivals Everton were soaring high in the domestic game and Ben Elton was funny.

Liverpool legend Ian Rush said: "This shirt will definitely be one for the fans. The club's history is so strong and it is amazing how it can be seen in this new shirt. The players will love it too, it is so light and it looks great. It'll remind them of the Club's history of success and drive them even more to bring that success back to the Club".

The new kit, from Warrior, has been made using its signature War-Tech fabric which makes the shirt highly breathable as well as “moisture-wicking”, keeping players dry. The four-way stretch mesh panelling under the arms and across the back allow airflow and ventilation, helping players stay comfortable in core heat areas of the body.

Design wise, a white three-piece collar and bold white accents define the overall look and are set upon a striking red colour scheme, complemented by mirrored details on each sleeve. 

The Liver Bird, reintroduced last year in favour of the club badge, is back, both as an embroidered motif and a subliminal weave through the fabric. Back too are the two embroidered Eternal Flames alongside a 96 logo are located on the nape of the shirt’s neck.

Liverpool FC captain Steven Gerrard says the new design has been embraced by his teammates. 

“We're going to be sweating a lot in different weather conditions (hopefully, eds) so it is important the kit is right.

“The players and I are all genuine fans,” he added. “As with all Liverpool shirts, I will wear it with pride and carry the excitement and history of what it represents, and, as a team, we hope to bring that success back to the club.” 

Team-mate Alan Kennedy added: "The new shirt is very light and I'm told the material will keep players cool.”
