Liverpool’s new kit ridiculed for looking like a Five Guys or McDonald’s uniform
Liverpool FC have released their new third kit for the 2021/22 season and people laugh at the design saying it reminds them of some fast food chains.
The yellow Nike jersey – a color that hasn’t been featured on their outfit since 2014/15 – gives off a retro vibe with the addition of a red checkered V-neck.
In a statement posted on its website, the football club said: “The red and yellow checkered border on the collar is inspired by the passion and energy of the Kop and the checkered flags that lit up for the first time. times the Reds’ end of the stadium to the 1977 European Cup Final, which then set a precedent for any future big European nights in. The pinstripes underline the close bond between the club and its community.
Since the kit was officially announced on the football club’s website this morning, people can’t help but notice that the colors on the kit are eerily similar to a fast food chain that will forever be associated with in red and yellow – McDonald’s – many suggesting the outfit would be ripe for Ronald McDonald.
Ronald McDonald was soon in fashion on Twitter …
Meanwhile, the kit’s red checkered details – and the red and white background shown in promotional photographs – reminded people of another fast food establishment as they compared the new design to something an employee of Five Guys would wear.
Five Guys UK’s Twitter account even joined in the fun. The chain decided to give away a limited edition Five Guys t-shirt that looks awfully like a certain kit …
Other comparisons people made included polishing rags, taxis, cartoon character Rupert the Bear, and famous children’s TV character Big Bird.
While some laughed at the new third kit, other Liverpool fans shared their love for the design and rejected trolling online.
In the 1950s, the color yellow was used “a few times” at the club and quickly became part of the club’s usual alternative color scheme in the late 1970s, according to the Liverpool FC website.
Liverpool’s third kit is available for pre-order online here now and will go on general sale for in-store and online purchase starting September 21.
