Liverpool will look a bit different next season.

The Reds are celebrating Wednesday as the 125th anniversary of the day its founder broke from the ranks of Everton to form a new club.

John Houlding was the president of Liverpool’s now Merseyside rivals when he was removed from his position on March 15, 1892.

Two-and-a-half months later, Liverpool FC was born. The Reds announced Wednesday that they will unveil a special crest to commemorate the anniversary.

Liverpool will wear the crest on its 2016-17 kits, which will be unveiled with the logo in April.
