Chelsea FC and Nike Football on Friday unveiled the new home kit for the 2018/19 season.
According to the Club website, the new kit takes inspiration from the famous and much-loved jerseys of the 1980s and 90s. Flashes of colour light up the shirt, with dazzling horizontal red and white lines vibrantly standing out against the famous Chelsea blue.
Two subtle features ensure the kit is fulsome with Chelsea pride and heritage. On the back of the shirt sits a small lion, an instantly recognisable symbol borrowed from the club crest. Inside the jersey, the words ‘Blue is the Colour’ can be found, the opening line from the Chelsea anthem.
The jersey is complemented by the traditional blue shorts and white socks, brightened by a horizontal red and blue trim at the knee.
Both the Chelsea Academy and Ladies teams will wear the new kit throughout the 2018/19 season.
The new kit will be worn for the first time this Sunday 13th May when the Blues take on Newcastle in their final league game of the season.
