It is no secret – ever since childhood, I’ve been a big ABL fan (Anything But Liverpool). Even when I was playing at New England Revolution under the legend that is Steve Nicol I didn’t keep this fact a secret.
But, this latest jersey release is absolutely sweet and it looks like a jersey that would be extremely comfortable to wear over 90 minutes!
Warrior Sports has just released its second installment of the Liverpool home jersey, this one for the 2013/14 season, and it really increases the companies appeal. This really is the type of jersey release that visually matches up with the likes of what you expect to see from Nike and Adidas. One of the key components behind the release is Warriors ability to reach out to true fans and keep heritage in mind – the new home kit is a modern take on the 1984 version, worn during the Club’s fourth European Cup win.
“The new home kit pays tribute to the renowned success LFC is built on, but it is also a nod to the future,” said Richard Wright, head of Warrior Football. “With high performance the top priority, our design team has further developed what was loved about our last design and lifted it to a new level. The result is an innovative take on the iconic red jersey.”
Giving the familiar a contemporary overhaul, a white three-piece collar set upon a striking red colour scheme is complemented by mirrored details on each sleeve. Historically worn by player greats such as Alan Kennedy and Ian Rush, the bold white accents define the overall look.
Embraced by fans following its re-introduction in 2012, the Liver Bird crest has been incorporated into the new design in two key ways. Running alongside the embroidered emblem, a new pin-striped sublimation print on the front of the shirt showcases the iconic symbol with the words, ‘Liverpool FC’. Interwoven using a darker red hue, this eye-catching detail strengthens the kit’s visual depth.
Engineered to enable optimum on-pitch performance, the kit has been constructed using War-Tech, Warrior’s signature apparel technology system. Highly breathable, moisture-wicking War-Tech fabric has been used to build the main body of the shirt. Four-way stretch mesh paneling under the arms and across the back will allow for unparalleled airflow and ventilation, helping players stay comfortable in core heat areas of the body.
