It’s History – Did you know Liverpool Sprung From Everton FC
As Liverpool FC’s celebrates their 125 Anniversary, LFC has released a unique animation to celebrate the Club’s first game which took place on 1st September 1892.
The gritty animation tells the story of how John Houlding put his reputation on the line following his acrimonious departure from Everton FC to form Liverpool Football Club.
The team, assembled in just a matter of weeks, was Houlding’s greatest gamble. They took to the pitch for the first time, with barely 100 people looking on.
A team, made up entirely of Scotsmen, beat Rotherham 7-1 on their debut.
Fast-forward 125 years, LFC will celebrate its 125th anniversary at the Red’s clash against Burnley on 16th September.
With a lot more fans in the stands now, Liverpool looks to continues the tradition of great victories.
The 2017/18 kit has been the most popular kit in the Reds history, with the commemorative kits receiving unprecedented demand from supporters, perhaps because of the retro styling.
With fanbase steadily increasing, Liverpool FC launched a new superstore on August 14 — 19,500 sq. ft megastore with 46 “till points” or registers in language Americans understand and 20 customizing shirt printing machines.
