Everton are in the second year of a three-year contract with Danish sportswear firm hummel. All three of the kits for the 2020-21 season were mostly well-received, and the away kit for the upcoming season features a bold design that harkens back to the earliest days of the club’s history.
Yesterday both the club and the kitmaker teased the textured print which looked like it would form the background for the new home kit.
Well here it is Blues.
The design inspiration for the new home kit has come from around the world, with a number of Evertonians involved in the process. From the Everton site -
The video follows the unique dazzle pattern being recreated as a stunning piece of sand art at Bellarine Peninsular in Victoria, Australia, and incorporated into an eye-catching hairstyle at a barber studio in Ireland, as well as showcasing the artistic abilities of a Chinese nail artist, Malaysian carpenter, Greek graphic designer and US-based baker.
For the first time, the women’s kit is being released along with the men’s kit too. The Everton Women showed off their jersey through the announcement that they had signed veteran England international Toni Duggan.
As they did last year, hummel have done some good work with the goalkeeper kit too, with the design inspired by the technicolor jerseys made famous by Neville Southall in the mid-90s.
The kit will be available for sale starting July 15th, but can be pre-ordered right now through evertondirect.com

The away kit was released at the end of the previous season, with the Toffees wearing the ‘Black Watch’ inspired kit for their last game of the 2020-21 campaign. Those can be ordered at the Kitbag online store here.*
The training gear selection has been released too, and the primarily white kit (called ‘Gardenia’) is very sraightforward with clean lines, while the away pre-match jersey has all the colors of the away kit (black, white, ‘statement burnt orange’) in bold slashes across the front.
