Liverpool unveil new kit

Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Virgil Van Dijk showed off the club’s new Nike kit in a promotional video released on Saturday.

The new kit is the first to be unveiled since the Premier League champions signed a multi-year deal with Nike as their new kit supplier from the 2020-21 season to replace New Balance.

Liverpool were taken to court by New Balance last year after it was alleged the club was looking to switch to Nike once their existing contract ended in May 2020.

Boston-based New Balance, Liverpool’s official kit supplier since the 2015-16 campaign, said they should have been allowed to match Nike’s offer.

However, the club successfully argued that New Balance could not match Nike’s offer with respect to marketing and distribution, with the judge ruling New Balance’s offer “less favourable to Liverpool” compared to Nike’s offer.
