Liverpool tradition has it that the switch to an all-red kit occurred in a European Cup match against Anderlect on November 25, 1964. As Ian St John recalls, in the run-up to that game, coach Bill Shankly asked Ron Yeats to model a pair of red shorts with the classic shirt.

Before adopting the all-red look, Liverpool wore a red shirt and white shorts, combined with a variety of sock colors throughout the seasons, from white to black, to red and red and white. Surprisingly, the club used blue and white kits reduced by half from its founding in 1892 until the 1896 campaign.
Virgil van Dijk has been confirmed as Liverpool FC's new captain, with Trent Alexander-Arnold named vice-captain. The central defender, who also holds the same position in his country, the Netherlands, will occupy the armband full time after the departure of Jordan Henderson from the Reds.
Founded in 1892, the club joined the Football League the following year and has played its home games in Anfield since its inception. Nationally, the club has won 19 league titles, eight FA Cups, a record nine League Cups, and 16 FA community shields.
