Liverpool to finish Premier League season in Nike kit?
As you are almost certainly aware by now, the Premier League season is currently at a standstill.
The spread of COVID-19, more commonly referred to as the coronavirus, across the globe has caused major disruption to the footballing world, including having the Euros and Copa America pushed back to 2021.
And, at the time of writing, the Premier League has been postponed until at least April 30th.
UEFA have also recently put out a report, in which they stated that there is:
A commitment to complete all domestic and European club competitions by the end of the current sporting season, i.e. 30 June 2020 at the latest, should the situation improve and resuming playing be appropriate and prudent enough.
UEFA, the European Club Association, European Leagues and FIFPRO Europe today signed a joint resolution on the principles of a contingency plan regarding the 2019-20 season.
The principles include details on the completion of national team and club competitions…

This, of course, includes the Premier League, and could mean that Liverpool, who are currently 25 points clear at the top of the English top-flight, could be lifting the trophy in a Nike kit.
As a result, the report from the Mail claims that the Reds would be obliged to wear a Nike kit for any games that take place after that date.
