LIVERPOOL FC’s new 2012-2013 jersey has been officially revealed to the public on the 4th of June (00.01 UK time) by LFC and their new kit designers Warrior Sports. The Reds had inked a new kit sponsorship deal worth £25 million a year, with US based Warrior to replace Adidas towards the end of last season, and this new LFC 2012-13 away kit is the second creation for the club from Warrior Sports, after the all red home strip which was unveiled about a month ago. Warrior had gone for a retro look for the home strip, replacing the club crest with the old school Liverbird logo. Warrior have once again kept the tradition of bringing back the retro with the new away strip as well.
Following Warrior’s design direction of modern tradition, the new kit is inspired by Liverpool’s away kit from 1900-1906 which featured the yoke detail in recognition of sailors and the huge influence of the docks on the city at the time.
The away strip is a black and grey mix, and like the home strip, the club crest is replaced by Liverbird badge. The Warrior logo and Liverbird badge are yellow in colour, with banking giant Standard Chartered continuing its financial association with the club.
Pepe Reina’s 2012-13 away jersey is a yellow and black mix and the Warrior logo and the Liverbird badge on Goalkeeper jersey is black in colour.
As you can see from the images below modelled by Gerrard, Reina, Johnson and Suarez, the new away kit looks very good and carefully thought out. Warrior have done a good job on colour combination by mixing black and grey giving it a unique look.
