Liverpool and sports clothes company Reebok in court battle

According to official sources, Liverpool Football Club will launch their £7m lawsuit against Reebok at the High Court tomorrow.

We must mention that proceedings of Liverpool FC versus Reebok International have been listed for the Royal Courts of Justice, in the Strand, London.

Despite those details, the case is likely to drag on for several months, with tomorrow's date likely to be a preliminary hearing.

In fact, the dispute between the Reds and their former shirt manufacturer began following a delay in the release of the Liverpool away jersey for the start of the 2005/06 season.

This was caused by Liverpool's ongoing shirt sponsorship talks with Carlsberg.

That was the reason why Reebok claimed they lost revenue worth £7m and refused to abide by the terms of the contract.

Liverpool insists the delay of two months didn't cost Reebok revenue, it merely delayed the inevitable vast sale of shirts.

Now the Reds want back what they insist they are entitled to.

Reebok UK were taken over by Adidas last year, who subsequently inherited the terms of the Reds' existing jersey contract.

But Liverpool's dispute remains with the Reebok branch of the company, not their new partners.
