Avery Dennison to supply 2019/20 Premier League names and numbers

What’s new for the upcoming 2019/20 season?  For starters – the Premier League patch is getting a bit of an upgrade with a slightly refreshed design and a change to printed vinyl which should help overall durability and wear.

Avery-Dennison took over as the official supplier for the Premier League patches for both on-pitch and fan wear and here at the shop we only stock the player-versions in our custom shop.

Here’s what they look like: 

 Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the new patch and what is now the old Premier League patch:

What they’re about:
“Are you a Red in North Carolina?” That one question posed on Facebook by Liverpool FC began the journey that would become OLSC Charlotte “The Charlotte Reds”.  People kept mentioning some place called Hooligans in a place called “The French Quarter” as THE place in Charlotte to go watch a match, and the rest is history. 

As of this writing, we have over 150 paid members and many more still that join us every week to cheer on our Mighty Reds. 

Memorable Moments: 
The most memorable moments for us have to be the 2 times the club has visited Charlotte. The fact we got to have so many Reds from around the world here on our city on top of being able to cheer on our team – what could be better?! This last visit was especially memorable for many reasons. Many of us got to meet and take pictures with Sami Hyypiä when they announced the match, one of our members, Jim Pederson (“Sir Jim”) gave Jurgen Klopp one of our scarves (to which Klopp gave one of his EPIC profane responses!), and we got to take a picture with the team in the stands! Then the Boss Night was so rocking the entire Epicentre was literally shaking! People still talk about how Liverpool fans were when the team was here

Match day Breakfast: 
Valhalla has a Warrior’s Omelette that is the perfect option for someone on a keto diet, but their English Breakfast, Swedish Hash and Berserker Breakfast are the top 3 choices for the majority of the match day crowd.

Favorite Liverpool FC moment for the Club?
Until the Barca Return Leg, it was Dortmund at Anfield & it was no contest. The truth is there were more people present for Dortmund than there were Barca…at first. By the time Trent fed Dvok our 4th goal to send us to Madrid, Valhalla was packed & the place went nuts!!! However, in both instances, you had the scenes of grown men overcome with joy, tear rolling down their face, and strangers who had never paid attention to soccer/football before staring in awe finally realizing why we loved this sport AND this club so much. (I’m pretty sure we also had a dramatic spike in alcohol sales for the home pub, but that’s just based on anecdotal observation).

Jersey Presale FAQ

Q: When will my order ship?

A: All retailers aren’t allowed to ship product until the worldwide release date of May 9th.  All preorders will ship complete with any other products in the order on or around May 9th.

Q: Can I add patches?

A: Yes but with so much to play for this season and the supplier changing to a new company we are waiting to determine which patches will be used next season before adding them as an option.  Our in-house custom shop can always add name and numbers in addition to patches at a later date.  Our jerseys are the Premier League version of the jerseys and feature the Western Union (WU) patch on the left sleeve.  In the Champions League the jerseys will not feature the WU patch but it is unknown at this time if we will be able to stock the Champions League version of the jerseys.

Q: Tell me everything you know about lettering!

A: The same jerseys will be worn in in the Premier League and Champions League but the players name/number font choices will be different.  On the home jersey the lettering is white in both instances except for Becker’s keeper jersey which will have his name and number in gold.  As we do not know if we will have the CL-edition jersey it is also unknown at this time if we will have the gold lettering.  Keep an eye on social and our email list as if the gold lettering is available we will happily add it to your jersey even though with the WU-patch it will not technically be in full CL spec.

Q: Will you get more of the black/gold keepers jersey?

A: Yes!  We have more due in early September so if you want to reserve one just send us a tweet or email and we’ll write down your name and reach out when they are back in stock.

What they’re about:
We were unofficially founded in 2012.  There were consistently 3 guys going to Piper’s Pub in Pittsburgh wearing LFC kits.  One day we all 3 approached each other and discussed how to get more organized.  Out of that impromptu meeting came the LFC Pittsburgh Facebook Page and Twitter.

As our numbers started to grow, we looked into the process of gaining OLSC status.  We were approved as an OLSC in 2014 and have grown exponentially since.  We outgrew Piper’s (which is a soccer pub for every fan, not a particular supporter’s bar) and wanted to guarantee the most numbers as possible, so we moved to our 2ndhome, Cain’s Saloon.

A few weeks ago we were approached about moving bars and were offered a deal that we couldn’t turn down.  As of March 3, 2019 Fredo’s Bar and Eatery is the Official Home of LFC Pittsburgh.

We currently have 200+ members, of which 50+ are Official LFC members also.  It is weird to think that this all started with 3 members meeting by chance.

Memorable Moments:
The best memory for our club has to be the UCL Final in 2018.  Even though we didn’t get our 6th, just having the pub packed with Reds and actually having to turn people away due to Fire Codes was an awesome experience.

Another awesome experience was sitting in The Big House and seeing Shaqiri score THAT goal against THAT team was great.  Even though it was a preseason match, seeing that stadium with that many LFC Supporters was something to take in.

Match day Breakfast:
Nothing beats a great Irish Boxty, washed down with an IPA.

Favorite Liverpool FC moment for the Club?
The 2016 League Cup Final was an eye-opener for us as a club.  That was the first HUGE turnout that we had.  The pub was PACKED and when Coutinho equalized the place went crazy. We drank so much Carlsberg that day that we kicked all of the pub’s kegs and they had to go buy more.

Liverpool will host Tottenham Hotspur this weekend at Anfield Stadium in a decisive Premier League clash in the title race.

Be prepared for the game by the numbers:

2: The last time the two sides met was on September 15that Wembley Stadium. Liverpool won the game 2-1 with goals from Roberto Firmino and Gini Wijnaldum.

3: From their last five Premier League fixtures, Liverpool have picked up 11 points with a record of 3-0-2 (W, L, D). Tottenham have picked up just four points with a record of (1-3-1). Spurs’ three losses came on the road.

13: Liverpool have played at Anfield 15 times so far this season. We have won 13 of those games, and drew the other 2. Fortress. We have not lost at Anfield in the last 36 games.

14: Liverpool and Alisson Becker currently have the most clean sheets in the 18/19 Premier League season with 17. This is 8 more than Tottenham, who have just 9.

17: Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Harry Kane all enter the game on Sunday with 17 Premier League goal. Sergio Aguero is the only player to have scored more times this season (18), who tops the standings in the race for the 18/19 Golden Boot.

76: After 31 games, Liverpool currently sit top of the table with 76 points. Liverpool concluded their 17/18 campaign with 75 points. Already, we have more points than last season, more wins than last season (+3), less draws (-5), less losses (-4) and a better goal difference (+6).

23-1-7: Liverpool’s record so far this season is 23-1-7 (W, L, D). No other team in the Premier League this season has been beat fewer times.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OFFICIAL LIVERPOOL SUPPORTERS CLUB SPOTLIGHT: LFC MADISON

Name: OLSC Madison
Match day Meeting Point: Nomad World Pub [Madison], 418 E WILSON STREET MADISON, WI
Contact: LFCMadison@gmail.com
Social: Twitter.com/LFCMadison

Facebook.com/LFCMadison

What they’re about:
Formed unofficially back in 2013. Our once small group has now grown into a huge group of dedicated Reds (especially considering Madison’s size), that we were able to make it “official” this year. We’ve had a few different homes through the years but feel great about our awesome current pub, a dedicated soccer bar called Nomad (who we’re proud to say have one of Milner’s goals playing on repeat on their “futbol” homepage), located just off the main square that surrounds the Capitol Building in downtown Madison. We have a full board of 9 who drive Community Outreach, Fundraising, Media, and Events.

Memorable Moments:
We’ve had some ups and downs since we began. 13/14 was our first season together and we grew rapidly. Everything seemed perfect as we headed into the home stretch but it wasn’t to be… After Rodgers, Klopp has given us plenty to cheer about but our most memorable moments, biggest crowds for finals, have ultimately resulted in runners-up medals but the excitement and drama surrounding the journey to those finals has improved with each one and we hope this season doesn’t disappoint!

We’ve taken road trips, most recently meeting in Michigan, Ann Arbor, for the pre-season against United which was incredible, just under 110 thousand people, most of whom were Reds filling out the Big House! The Anfield Wrap and Boss Night were in Detroit too which made it a fabulous weekend to enjoy with fellow Reds across North America, and beyond.
A few members have been fortunate enough to make the pilgrimage to Anfield for a game or two and while they’re there they’ve been able to find our LFC Madison Forever Stone in the Shankly section outside the Main Stand.

Match day Breakfast:
Coffee, Pints, Mamosa Pitchers and Bloody Marys! Wisconsin do a bloody good bloody Mary! Food is also available… 🙂

Favorite Liverpool FC moment for the Club?
For us, the Champions League Final was a huge turnout of fans, a capacity pub, filled wall to wall with Liverpool Supporters (I counted just 5 Madrid fans and some “neutrals”) plus countless stories of other bars around town being packed full of Reds as well so Mane’s goal nearly blew the windows out but the wind was well and truly knocked out of our sails come the full time whistle but there have been other huge days to remember. The City and Roma games last season were incredible, Allez Allez Allez rung out around the bar and that atmosphere has followed on into this season. I have never seen a bar go off quite like we went off after Origi scored at 90 +6 against Everton… that was just beyond words! Lastly, we had a really great time producing a number of videos for the club so that we could be featured in their new OLSC montage which was so cool to see up there on the official LFC site – even though they only used 2 seconds of our 8 hours of content!
