There was a report yesterday that Chelsea Football Club were going to make a huge announcement today, and many were waiting excitedly for this announcement.
As expected, the club’s announcement was on our new jersey for next season.
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.
The jersey is complemented by the traditional blue shorts and white socks, brightened by a horizontal red and blue trim at the knee.
Inside the jersey, the words ‘Blue is the Colour’ can be found, the opening line from the Chelsea anthem.
The new kit will be worn for the first time this Sunday 13 May in our final league game of the season against Newcastle.
As well as the men’s team, both the Chelsea Academy and Ladies teams will wear the new kit throughout the 2018/19 season.
