Liverpool match Everton with new black away kit

Liverpool and Everton will have something more in common next season than just nearby stadia – both will be wearing near-identical black away kits.

Liverpool’s new kit maker Warrior Sports has unveiled the club’s new black away kit for 2012/13 and it bears striking similarities to that of Everton’s new Nike away kit.

The Liverpool away shirt is black with black shorts and socks. Like the Everton kit, the sponsor, kit maker logo and badge are all in gold.

However, the Liverpool kit does add a splash of individuality with a thick silver ring around the collar, silver side panels and silver trim on the shorts.

Meanwhile, the Liverpool away goalkeeper kit for 2012/13 will be yellow with black trim and a touch of red on the sleeves.

The shorts and socks will also be yellow with a black trim.

The kit is the first away kit to be revealed by Warrior Sports. The home kit, a simple red kit with yellow badge, sponsor and kit manufacturer logo, was revealed in May.

Liverpool’s new-look badge, which features a Liver Bird without the shield, is also included in the new Liverpool away kit, with the ‘eternal flame’ moved to the back of the collar for the new season.

      Money!! There’ll be people thick enough to buy it because its slightly different to the one they already have. A fool and his money!

    That’s a nasty looking top, that grey bit looks like a bib. I suppose that’s the forfeit for signing a deal with Warrior.

    As much as I like the home kit I dislike the away kit, in fact I think it is horrible.
