Chelsea had partnered with Adidas since 2006 and the deal was set to run until 2023 but Chelsea cut short the deal to sign a £60m-a-season agreement with Nike.
Nike will be Chelsea’s kit suppliers from the 2017-18 season and two pieces of Chelsea’s 2017-18 Nike merchandise have been leaked, our third kit and home jacket.
The home jacket certainly gives us the shade of blue our home kit for next season would adopt while the third kit adopts the black and grey colour scheme of this season’s away kit but the horizontal stripes are set to be scrapped for a new camouflaged look.
Below is the home jacket for next season
Below are two photos of the third kit for next season. It’s yet to be known if the badge colours will be adapted to fit with the kit as in recent seasons, or remain blue and white.
