OUR LFC can exclusively show the radical new crest and home kit for the 2017/2018 season. As reported last month, LFC reported that a special anniversary crest will be worn for the new season. It was reported that the crest will be inspired from the original LFC crest.
The original crest was taken from the City of Liverpool coat of arms which features two Liver Birds, Neptune and a Triton either side. It is understood from our source that the new crest features a modernised shield shape, from the original crest, sitting behind the iconic Liver Bird. The scroll then sits below with ‘Liverpool FC’. However, the most controversial part of the crest will be the colours. In the Liverpool museum, you can find the first ever Liverpool kit which features a white and blue colour scheme.
We can now exclusively show the crest that the Reds will use for the next season celebrating 125 years since the start of the club. Below you can see the new blue colour scheme crest that will be used on all communications for the new season, along with a ‘monotone’ version that will be used on the kits.
The crest features the iconic Liver Bird in the centre of a blue and white shield. The ‘1892’ on either side of the bird is the year the club was formed. We can say that the new blue and white kit will be the home top for the new season. It is believed that the traditional red top will be back for the 18/19 season.
The top features a light blue and white half and half effect with a darker blue being the detail for the badge and sponsor. The crest is seen simplified with just dark blue and white. But Liverpool won’t be without red on the kit! A splash of red can be seen just below the collar on the back.
The kit is set to be officially revealed at some point in April. There is no word on when the Away kit will be revealed.
