The Locker Room

UEFA Champions League finalists Liverpool have officially unveiled their new Nike home kit for the 2022/23 season. 

Nike will soon be in the third year of their lucrative contract with the Reds, and their latest offering is inspired by the attitude of "Scouse solidarity", with the bold design reflecting the mentality of its people.

A newly added feature includes a "97" on the back of the collar to commemorate the Hillsborough disaster where 96 people lost their lives before another survivor, Andrew Stanley Devine, became the 97th person who died as a result of the disaster.  

The new red shirt is complemented by shorts and socks in the same colour.

The Premier League giants have explained the inspiration behind their new design on the club's official website. 

"With jersey prices frozen from last season, the all-red home shirt features intricate YNWA detailing on the sleeve cuff, representing the resilient bond between the fans and the club," the statement read.

"On the reverse of the jersey, the 97 emblem encased by the Eternal Flames sits proudly at the nape of the neck in memory of the children, women and men who lost their lives in the Hillsborough tragedy.

"The change from 96 to 97 is in recognition of Andrew Stanley Devine, the 97th person unlawfully killed as a result of the Hillsborough disaster.

"The Nike kit is sustainably made, with on-pitch and replica jerseys constructed with 100% recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.

"Plastic bottles are collected, cleaned and melted down to produce a high-quality yarn for manufacturing, as part of Nike's wider Move to Zero initiative, with football apparel leading the way in sustainability, and in line with LFC's The Red Way initiative.

"The club has introduced a new LFC name and number style for the back of shirt, which also takes inspiration from the city, with a contemporary take on Liverpool's historic street signs.

"The product is printed with water-based inks as a more sustainable option and will be worn for cup competitions and friendlies."

"We're all so proud to wear the Liverpool FC jersey and be part of the swoosh family, " he told the club's official website.

"We know exactly what this jersey means to our fans, and we can't wait to run out in it at Anfield."
