Everton Ordered to Wear Old Kit at Crystal Palace to Avoid Kit Clash

The new season has not even started and we have our first last-minute kit change to avoid a change.

Everton just announced that they will wear their white 18-19 third kit when they travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

This change was requested by match officials who feared that Everton's choice, the new 'coral' 19-20 away kit, would clash with Palace's blue-and-red home kit.

Concluding their announcement, Everton confirmed that the 2019-2020 third kit will be released on August 23rd. It's dark blue and would not have helped here, however.
