LFCTV will explore the evolution of Liverpool’s iconic strip in a brand-new and exclusive documentary.
‘Pride in the Shirt’ premieres at 9pm BST on Monday July 17 – and will be available to watch on LFCTV GO the same evening.
The story starts by examining Everton Football Club’s early attire, in particular how one of their original efforts would be key to Liverpool’s formative years.
We’ll show how John Houlding, upon forming the Reds in 1892, delved into Everton’s store cupboard to pluck out an old blue-and-white number for his new side to wear.
Viewers will learn how within four years Liverpool changed to red and white – and by 1950, the club had experimented with a badge during the FA Cup final.
Former stars Ian St John, Phil Thompson, John Aldridge and Jason McAteer share their memories.
Meanwhile, kit historians Stefan Seaton and Peter Crilly join club historian Stephen Done in providing historic context.
We’ll show how Bill Shankly orchestrated the change to all-red, how the club embraced new technologies, introduced shirt sponsorship and opted for yellow, silver and green change kits.
The documentary runs through to the modern era, and is packed full of fond memories of special strips that mean so much to so many.
‘Pride in the Shirt’ will get its first airing at 9pm BST on July 17. You can also watch the show on LFCTV GO.
