Heading into Jurgen Klopp’s first full season at Anfield, Liverpool fans have many reasons to feel optimistic about the upcoming season. The arrival of six new players in Sadio Mané, Georginio Wijnaldum, Loris Karius, Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip and Alexander Manninger, sends a message to the Premier League about the Kop army’s ambitions for the coming season. In this post, we dig into the red side of Merseyside’s 2016/2017 Home Jersey.
Liverpool 2016/2017 Home Jersey
Once again manufactured by American Sports Company, New Balance, the 2016/2017 Home Jersey comes in the traditional red colour that has been associated with Liverpool Football Club from the very beginning. The shirt is predominantly red with some yellow elements on it. The jersey showcases a relaxed athletic fit. There is an inscription of number “96” between two flame torches on the upper back collar, in honour of the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
Liverpool’s Home Jersey features a round polo-style collar with a button. Inside the jersey, there is an inscription of the words “There’s no noise like the Anfield Noise” to pay homage to the fantastic home atmosphere at Anfield.
The front of the jersey contains the usual suspects: the official club crest, the New Balance logo, and the Standard Chartered Sponsor print and logo centre-aligned just beneath the bunch. There are visible horizontal stripes spread across the shirt.
The complete Liverpool Home Kit for the 2016/2017 season will feature matching red shirt, shorts and socks.
