The reason why Everton won't have the club crest on their third kit

Everton have altered their third kit for the new season.

Everton have unveiled their new third kit for the 2022/2023 season.


The shirt, which was designed by kit manufacturer Hummel was launched on Thursday and fans will notice one key element from other Everton kits missing.

Instead of featuring the usual club crest, the Toffees have instead "put the iconic Prince Rupert's Tower at the heart" of the design. An outline of the town can also be seen reflected in a pattern that runs across the bottom of the shirt.


The kit itself is a nod to a similar away design wore by the Merseyside club between 1990 and 1992 which featured two Laurel wreaths underneath the tower, as well as the the letters 'EFC'.

Alongside the yellow base, the shirt will also feature the traditional royal blue collier associated with the Toffees, featuring on the chevrons at the top of the shoulders and the sponsor logos on the chest.


Both the shorts and socks will also be similar, with a predominantly yellow feature as well as some chevrons detailed too. Everton have also confirmed that the goalkeeper kit will also pay tribute to the same shirt worn in the early 90s.

Jordan Pickford will be seen sporting a design which has a mandarin orange base while being complimented with black and gold stripes pointing outwards from the top of the shoulders. This kit will feature the traditional Everton crest though.


Toffees fans will get the first chance to see the new third kit in person on Saturday when they face Aston Villa at Villa Park. Frank Lampard's side lost their first game of the season in a 1-0 defeat to his former club Chelsea.

New signings Conor Coady and Amadou Onana could both make their debuts after joining from Wolves and Lille respectively.
