It’s all over. New Balance’s appeal to the High Court over the verdict on the kit deal has been rejected, and Nike will now start manufacturing Liverpool’s kits next season.
That’s according to very reliable journalist Paul Joyce – who has explicitly said Nike will be making the Reds’ kits next season.
New Balance’s attempts to appeal High Court verdict over kit deal rejected. Draws a line under legal case. Liverpool will go with Nike from next season.

The official word from the club so far is nothing, and top journalists hadn’t said anything other than Nike “should” become our next manufacturer.
They were explicitly mentioned in court as well, so we’ve known this for some time now, but Joyce’s word is as good as a club official wearing a red Nike jacket.
Snippets of information about the possible kits for next season, under Nike, have been leaked by the reliable Footy Headlines – here’s what they reckon:
The home kit will be a lighter shade of red, the away will be turquoise and the alternative kit will be black, as per this report.
