Liverpool FC 2021-22 Away Kit Revives Cult Classic Design From 1996

Liverpool FC’s new away 2021-2022 jersey is inspired by the city’s rich history. It also revives the iconic color scheme of the fan-favorite 1996-97 kit ­– an off-white stone base with teal striping details in the collar and sock.

The “96” emblem on the collar is a reference to the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, which resulted in the death of 96 fans. Due to errors made by the police, exit gate C of the Hillsborough Stadium was opened during a match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, which led to fans flooding the pens causing the deadly crush.
