Everton and Umbro have revealed the Club’s new third kit for the 18/19 season. The new fan-led design is inspired by the iconic Prince Rupert’s Tower which sits proudly on the Club’s crest.
On the white jersey, the tower is featured as an abstract graphic across the chest in Everton blue, with Umbro’s iconic running diamonds on the cuff in peacoat blue, complementing the details in the collar and hem.
The shirt is completed by a Prince Rupert’s Tower symbol on the backneck area, a design feature that runs across all of the Club’s 2018/19 shirts.
Set to be worn for the first time in Everton’s Premier League away trip to Bournemouth this weekend, the third strip is the final phase of the successful ‘Go On’ campaign, celebrating the Club, the fans and the city of Liverpool.
The new strip is constructed from lightweight, durable fabrics with an ergonomic fit that can withstand the pressure of the modern game, giving players and fans freedom of movement and comfort. The three shirts have breathable underarm mesh panels for enhanced ventilation and stretch for all wearers.
Accompanying the jersey, the peacoat blue shorts feature a white trim on the legs alongside the Club and Umbro logos. The white socks feature a blue and white trim as well as the Umbro logo on the shin. A cotton footbed provides improved breathability and comfort.
Everton and Umbro collaborated with fans to understand their preferences on various design features for the 2018/19 home, away and third strips. Within the engagement process, which saw thousands of supporters submit their opinions, many Evertonians spoke about the importance of Prince Rupert’s Tower as a symbol of the Club.
