Liverpool unveil new training range for 2023/2024 season



Liverpool unveil new training range for 2023/2024 season

Following the launch of their new home shirt, Liverpool and Nike have now unveiled the club’s new training range.♦

The home shirt, which was launched on May 5, is a self styled tribute to Bill Shankly’s final season at Anfield and features a traditional design that sees the club’s signature bold red complimented by a stark white collar and cuffs.

The top was first glimpsed in a series of 1970’s themed photos released by the club that saw players such as Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez and Women’s vice-captain Taylor Hinds model the shirt.

The top, which is available to pre-order now, will hit stores on May 18 and you can expect to see the Reds lineup in the brand new strip against Aston Villa in the final home game of the season.

While the new retro inspired home shirt caught the eye with its homage to the greats of Liverpool’s past, the training range strikes a slightly more modern tone with a stylish and yet subtle Pre-Match Jersey and a Home Anthem Jacket for the men’s and women’s teams that blends a 1970’s on the terrace feel with modern day function.

The new Nike training jersey also boasts the brand’s now iconic Dri-FIT technology which is described as a feature that can move sweat away from your skin for quicker evaporation. The Home Pre-Match Jersey for men and women is retailing at £54.95 while, due to a commitment by the club to freeze youth shirt and training kit prices for the new season, the youth Pre-Match Jersey will be on sale for £49.95.

The Home Anthem Jackets come in at £74.95 in a range of sizes for men and women and the youth jackets are priced at £64.95 and you can pre-order now. As with previous seasons, the club is offering a 10 percent discount off the price of the home shirt to all LFC Official Members and season ticket holders here.

This is also available for UK key workers via Blue Light and Network and students via Student Beans.


Liverpool request away-game opener next season due to Anfield Road stand work

Liverpool have asked for next season’s opening match to be played away from home to allow preparations to be completed on their new Anfield Road stand.

Work, which began in September 2021, is on course to be finished this summer on the £80million redevelopment and will add around 7,000 extra seats, taking the ground’s overall capacity to more than 61,000.

However, with test events and potential additional work required on the pitch as a result of the building work – which will see the roof of the existing stand removed at the end of the season – Liverpool are looking to buy themselves more time to ensure everything is ready to open on the second weekend of the new campaign.

The club made a similar request to the Premier League when they completed the new Main Stand in 2016, which followed the same process of erecting the new building behind the existing one so the ground’s capacity was not affected during the season.

“We are on track and on budget,” vice-president of stadium operations Paul Cuttill said. “The progress has gone really well and we’re due to complete by the end of July, with a view to being ready for the first home game of the 2023-24 season.

“It’s not been confirmed yet but we’ve asked for the first game to be away, which will mean the first home game is August 19 or 20.

“It just means we have the best possible chance to make sure the stadium is ready, that we have had test events which are licensed and good to go.

“There is an element of pitch work, to make sure it has recovered from the roof being removed and the work which takes place on the pitch during the close season.”
