The European leagues are reaching their end and that means that all the big clubs will start unveiling their kits for the 2016/17 season. Chelsea FC and adidas revealed their new home jersey inspired by their tradition of heritage and glory.
Chelsea’s women’s team will debut the jerseys against Arsenal in the FA Women’s Cup on May 14th. The men’s team will take to the field with the new jersey for the first time when they host the 2015/16 Premier League champions, Leicester City, at Stamford Bridge in the final game of the season on May 15.
The jersey has an elegant look provided by the use of royal blue with white accents for the three stripes on the sides and the fitted V-neck collar. The later features a blue/white necktape which holds the club’s name on the back.
