Chelsea have released a new yellow kit ahead of the 2018/19 season, with Nike bringing back the famous yellow jersey.
Chelsea first wore yellow in 1963, with the kit becoming more famous in the 1970s.
The yellow shirt and shorts are complemented by a pair of rush blue socks which feature a yellow band across the shin. The custom Knit Tape along the back neckline of the shirt allows improved stretch ability across the kit, enhancing players’ movement and agility.
On the inside neckline sits a lion from the club crest. Around it reads ‘Football is the game’, the second line of ‘Blue is the Colour’, our famous anthem and the first line of the song, which features in the home shirt and provides continuity between home and away kits.
The new 2018/19 Chelsea away kit will be worn for the first time on Saturday 28 July 28 against Inter Milan in Nice
It is the first time the Blues have unveiled a yellow kit since our Premier League-winning 2014/15 season. Hopefully, Chelsea will again have another dominant season like the 2014/15 season.
The kit is available to buy from July 20 at nike.com/chelsea and the Stamford Bridge Megastore.
