For the first time since linking up with the Reds, Nike will use their ‘Futura’ logo on the shirt. This helps give it a retro feel.

The shorts and socks are said to be yellow with red, white and grey accents.

The official 2021/22 home kit was released last month and worn in Liverpool’s final game of the season.

Nostalgic fans will likely be delighted to see yellow return to Liverpool’s alternative kits.

It is a colour that featured on numerous away kits during the club’s incredibly successful period in the 1980s.

While yellow was worn in odd games throughout the 1950s and 60s, it was in 1979 that it was first used on an official third kit.

Umbro and Adidas both used it throughout the 80s, while Reebok gave us a few yellow efforts in the 90s and 2000s.

Adidas brought out a yellow away kit in 2006/07, as seen on Xabi Alonso above, before the most recent yellow kit was made by Warrior in 2014/15.

The yellow and red checker design on the collar and sleeves represents the flags seen on the Kop throughout Liverpool’s history.

Yellow is a colour that has long been associated with Liverpool. Traditional kits are always a good thing, so it is great to see it back.

Hopefully, Jurgen Klopp’s side will have great success in it.
