St. Domingo Origins Inspire New 2019/20 Everton Away Kit

Taking it back to 1891 and the club's first league title

Taking it back to 1891 and the club’s first league title

Today, Umbro have released Everton’s new away shirt for the 2019/20 season, with the dominant colour inspired by that first league title.

In the days before kit regulation, Everton players dyed their own mix-and-match shirts and stitched a diagonal, two-inch wide sash down the front, creating their first uniform kit for the 1881/82 season. When the Club moved to Goodison Park in 1892, they switched to salmon shirts and navy shorts before eventually adopting the famous Royal Blue jerseys in the 1901/02 season.

Now, more than 125 years later, Everton and Umbro pay tribute to the first Evertonians to play at Goodison by bringing back the iconic colours for this season’s team to wear with pride away from home. What’s more, this year’s kit colour – Living Coral – is also the Pantone Colour of the Year.  As such, the away kit has been designed to be functional on the pitch and to appeal as everyday lifestyle wear for fans.

Alan McTavish, Commercial Director at Everton, said: “For the 2019/20 away kit, we have gone even further back into our history – this time to our St. Domingo origins. While the kit may be identified traditionally as salmon and navy, we’ve gone even bolder, bright and progressive with Living Coral. This is the right kit for us, as we embark on a new campaign, shining bright and ready to challenge across the 2019/20 season.”

On the launch of the new kit, Everton forward Theo Walcott added: “I’m into this kit. It’s not too busy, clean looking, feels really good and lightweight. It will complement well on the pitch. No one can say they won’t be able to see their teammates, that’s for sure. Let’s hope we can deliver the goods wearing it throughout 2019/20.”

Lucky fans can again get their hands on a limited-edition St. Domingo away kit shirtzine to mark the launch. Volume 1 became an instant collectors’ item with Blues’ fans eager to find one of the numbered editions placed around Merseyside.

The 2019/20 away kit is available to pre-order online now at evertondirect.com. It will be available in stores nationwide from Thursday 1 August.
