‘Pre-season is our busiest time of the year’: Inside Melwood’s kit room

16th July 2017

Six days, two games and approximately 90 pairs of boots.

When Liverpool’s players, coaches and staff depart for the club’s pre-season tour of Hong Kong later on Sunday, they’ll be joined by kit and equipment. Lots of kit and equipment, in fact.

See the metal container in the image above? Around 16 of those will be making the 12,000-mile round-trip, too – as Lee Radcliffe, the Reds’ kit management co-ordinator, explains.

“We take three full sets of training kit for every player. We’ll take between 25 and 30 players on tour, so there you’re looking at 90 kits – 90 pairs of shorts, 90 jerseys, 90 zip tops,” Radcliffe tells Liverpoolfc.com.

“Match shirts, you’re looking at two sets each, so two shirts and two pairs of shorts per player. That means about 80 per matchday. So 80 plus 80 for Hong Kong, then your accessories, socks, slips, cycle shorts etc.

“With boots, that depends on the player, but generally in pre-season and when they know it’s only two games they’ll take an average of three pairs. Some are happy with two, most will take three, some will take four, but not often.
