Everton’s 2023/24 away kit is revealed today, fusing two cult looks of the early Premier League era.
The coral and navy offering takes its colour scheme and vertical stripes from the away kit worn by the Club from 1992 to 1994, while the change strip of the following two years - 1994 to 1996 - provides the inspiration for its bold, striking pattern.
Supporters can buy men’s, women’s and youth kits online at evertondirect.com from today, Friday 21 July, ahead of the strip being available in store from next Friday 28 July. Baby and infant kits can be pre-ordered online now and will also be available from 28 July.
To reveal the kit, the Club and partners hummel and Fanatics have given a platform to Evertonian acts from Merseyside’s thriving music scene, with local artists starring in and providing the soundtrack for a launch video that is also a tribute to ’90s Liverpool culture and fashion.
Like its home equivalent, an all-black away goalkeeper strip pays homage to the unique relationship between St Luke's Church and Goodison Park. A silhouette pattern – angled across the front of the shirt – depicts the point where the church and Everton’s home of 131 years meet.
Everton’s Men’s Senior players will wear the kit for the first time when they take on Wigan Athletic in a pre-season friendly at the DW Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 2pm) – a match that can be streamed live on evertonfc.com.
Defender James Tarkowski, who took part in the photoshoot for the kit, said: “Personally, I always like the throwback kits and I think you can see how the elements of the two from the ‘90s have been used.
“As a player, you still want it to look and feel modern and have all the latest technology - and I think hummel have created something that does that.
“We know our away following is second to none, and I’m looking forward to wearing this and having those fans behind us again this season.”
Like the 2023/24 home kit revealed by Everton last month, the now familiar tower icon appears on the shirt's neck, and a tape on the shoulders offers a contemporary twist to hummel’s classic chevrons.
The shirt’s colour scheme is inverted for the rest of the kit, with coral chevrons standing out from stylish navy shorts and socks.
In line with the Club’s Everton for Change sustainability commitment, the strip has been created using Eco8 technology. The process sees material for each shirt manufactured from up to eight recycled plastic bottles and minimal water wasted during the dying process.
Allan Vad Nielsen, CEO of hummel, said: "As hummel celebrates its centenary year, it felt right to look to the past for inspiration and the 2023/24 Everton away kit is a synergy of two designs that really stood out to us.
“We hope Evertonians will enjoy seeing these colours and patterns return to the Club’s kits - and we look forward to seeing both players and fans wearing them with pride this season.”
