New 2018-19 kits: Liverpool, Dortmund and the biggest & best clubs in the world

May 20, 2018 7:45:00 AMEngland
The first batch of new jerseys ahead of the 2018-19 season are being launched, with some of the biggest names in football unveiling new uniforms

The 2017-18 campaign is almost over, so it is now the perfect time to get excited for the 2018-19 season, which brings renewed hope for fans of struggling teams and increased belief that successful sides can become invincible.

Transfer rumours whet the appetite of supporters, who look forward to seeing how the summer additions perform at their clubs - where they will wear the club's brand new kit.

New kit launches also keep supporters interested ahead of the upcoming campaign, and also allow fans to show off their team's new uniform before they even see the club's players wearing it.

Even though we are still months away from the 2018-19 season, clubs have already begun launching their new kits.

Goal looks at all the new 2018-19 kits that have been officially launched so far.


2018-19 Premier League kits


Liverpool were the first Premier League club to launch their kit for the 2018-19 season, revealing their new look ahead of their Champions League semi-final with Roma. The New Balance home kit retains the popular pepper red colouring and pays tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster by including the eternal flame on the neck of the shirt.

Young defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is a big fan of the new strip, which brings back the collar that had been absent from the 2017-18 jersey: "It is exciting to get the new kit and try something new on. It's a little bit different to last year and it has kept its simplicity and added a collar. I think it's a bit different when you walk into the 'changies' and you see a different kit hanging up and you are excited to put it on and see how it feels," he said.

Merseyside rivals Everton have also unveiled their new strip for next season , complete with a launch video celebrating the team's proud traditions and history. The strip itself continues this theme, produced by Umbro with the sports manufacturer's trademark diamond decorating the ends of the sleeves. The new kit makes its debut in the Toffees' final home game of the season against Southampton.

Manchester City's new kit commemorates the club's first ever title triumph. The kit features City's iconic blue colour, and also has speed blur stripes along the arms and shoulders, along with a button detail on the collar.

Man City kit

Navy socks and white shorts complete the kit, with the socks a throwback to City's first league title win in 1937.

Chelsea have unveiled a retro strip that harks back to the 1980s, featuring a selection of blue and white half-stripes, that also feature on the socks.

Manchester United's third kit is a navy effort that commemorates the 1968 European Cup winning team, and features "yarn spun from Parley Ocean Plastic" as a way of raising the issue of plastic in our oceans.

Some other kits for the 2018-19 season have also been leaked online, including Arsenal but these have not been officially unveiled by the kit manufacturers, so may not be correct.


2018-19 La Liga kits


Real Madrid will continue their partnership with Adidas, with the famous white strip unlikely to change drastically from the 2017-18 edition.

Barcelona are celebrating 20 years using Nike jerseys, and are paying homage to some of their classic looks with their new kit.
