It's not the first time the Reds have done something similar whilst working closely with Standard Chartered. Back in October 2018, in a home clash with Manchester City, Liverpool wore their usual shirts with "Seeing is Believing" printed on the front - another initiative that works with Standard Chartered in an attempt to tackle avoidable blindness. The Reds look to vacate one game per season where they have a one-off sponsor on the front of their shirt.
