The Blues’ newest away kit takes inspiration from the classic away kits of the 1960s and 70s
Chelsea Football Club and adidas have revealed the Premier League side’s newest away kit, which will no doubt garner interest from supporters of all ages. The London-based big club most recently won the 2009 FA Cup over Everton in a yellow strip, and older fans will remember club legends like Gianfranco Zola and John Hollins in previous renditions of the yellow clash kit.
The away kit overall is a simple, tasteful kit in yellow with blue trim. The shirt has a classic polo collar befitting of a look evoking past successes. The sleeve cuffs also come in a matching blue to complement the collar. The trademark three stripes on the sleeves and arching stripe on the back beneath the collar are also in blue. Chelsea’s badge comes in a monochrome blue on the chest. The shorts come in yellow with blue adidas three-stripe trim on both sides, a simple yet very effective look. The socks are also in yellow and blue, with the blue trim at the top of the socks include yellow stripes. The lion from the badge appears on the socks in blue, completing the look.Despite the third-place finish in the Premier League this season, Chelsea will still have a huge season ahead of them next year with the promise of UEFA Champions League play, and are still one of the most powerful clubs in the world. With Chelsea’s new away kit now unveiled, do you think reviving this classic look will speak the Blues to more silverware in the future?
