New photos of what appears to be Liverpool’s away shirt for the 2011-2012 season have been leaked.
The photos of Liverpool’s new away shirt reveal a return to the club’s famous yellow shirt with red trim. Designed and manufactured by Adidas, Liverpool’s new away shirt features red pinstripes on the front as well as the famous three red stripes from Adidas on the shoulders, a classic V-neck and the sponsor’s name emblazoned on the front.
Liverpool first wore a yellow away jersey in a European Cup game against Ajax in December, 1966. A yellow shirt then became the club’s third jersey from 1979-1982. It was then used, sometimes as a third jersey and sometimes as an away jersey, between the years 1982 to 1987, and it’s been used sporadically since then. The last time Liverpool wore yellow was the 2006-2007 season when it was their away shirt. There’s definitely a lot of history with the Reds wearing the color.
