Chelsea drew back pleasant memories as the Blues launched a new retro kit for the game against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Chelsea defeated Forest 2-0 in that game, and Chelsea fans were even more pleased with the jersey on display.

As a matter of fact, the Chelsea kit was officially sold out, less than 24 hours after it was first used by the club.

The stylish new strip features the Blues’ iconic lion badge, and all the advertising from the club’s partners -Yokohama Tires, Hyundai and Nike – with all being matched with the colour of the kit to blend in.

Chelsea chose to re-imagine the kit worn in the 1970 FA Cup final, a game which is still one of the most iconic in the club’s history.

It is now 50 years since the Blues iconic wins over Leeds to win the FA Cup at the end of the 1969/70 season, and the west London club and shirt sponsors Nike have partnered up to commemorate the victory.

Chelsea fans love the new kit and have already flocked to the official Chelsea megastore website to purchase the strip which is now sold out.

However, the kit will have a second release on January 16 – a week before the FA Cup fourth round of fixtures take place – and it can already be pre-ordered at chelseamegastore.com.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
