Everton will finally release their 2019-20 home kit tomorrow, just before the squad hops on a plan to Kenya to kick off their preseason friendly schedule. The club had previously announced it would be shown off this week.

Fans have been quite restless waiting for the new kit and now the club’s official Twitter account has announced that we will indeed see it on Thursday morning at 9am BST, with a press conference held by Andre Gomes to follow a couple of hours later, likely wearing the new kit.

However, one of the things that has certainly caught the supporters’ fancy is the hashtag the club used in the tweet - #StDomingo

St. Domingo of course is the original name of Everton Football Club, named after the chapel and location at the corner of Breckfield Road North and St. Domingo Vale.

Are we going to see a striped home kit, like that first shirt that was worn back between 1878-1880? Or is there going to be some sort of church/chapel watermark like imagery used on the kit?

Plenty to think about before tomorrow morning!

UPDATE: This is doing the rounds on Twitter, what do you think Blues?

Here’s the source of the pictures - kit site Todo Sobres Camisetas.

For those asking about the ‘weird’ EFC logo on the back of the shirt just under the collar, it’s the sleeve logo from the ‘92-’93 kit.

SECOND UPDATE: More pictures now flooding Twitter!
