Chelsea have unveiled a 90s-inspired third kit for the 2019/20 season.

The predominantly black jersey features an orange trim and resembles the away strip worn by the club between 1994 and 96.

The jersey also boasts numerous other nods to ‘90s football, with a jacquard knit rising from the fabric of the shirt, an old-school style collar and a retro Nike ‘Futura’ logo.

“You can see the ‘90s influence in fashion at the moment and I think the kit will appeal to pretty much everyone,” said Blues midfielder Mason Mount.

“Younger fans will like that it has a streetwear vibe and older fans will appreciate the sentimentality, remembering club legends who donned the famous shirt and their memories of going to games.”

The shirt also features an embossed ‘CFC’ pattern running in diagonal lines across the shirt. The font, borrowed from our ‘90s matchday programmes, adds another layer to the nostalgia.

A squared-off collar tops up the retro aesthetic, while ‘Chelsea FC’ is printed across the neckline, above the Nike logo and a club crest, which stands out thanks to an elevated trim.

Chelsea will debut the new kit in the Champions League away trip to Lille on October 2.

The Blues begin their Europea campaign at home against Valencia in September before trips to Lille and Ajax. We then host Ajax, travel to Valencia and round off our Champions League group schedule with the visit of Lille in December.
