A statement by the club on June 1 read: ‘Liverpool FC can confirm New Balance will continue as the club’s official kit supplier until July 31, 2020.
‘It has been mutually agreed with New Balance, the club and incoming kit supplier Nike that the deal, which was due to come to an end on May 31, 2020, will be extended due to the Premier League being suspended as a result of Covid-19.
‘Nike’s term as official kit supplier to the club, outfitting the men’s, women’s and Academy squads, as well as coaching staff and Liverpool FC Foundation, is due to commence on August 1, 2020.’
