2017-18 Chelsea home and away kits launched
New Premier League champions Chelsea have revealed the home and away kits for their upcoming title defence. After a decade in the adidas camp, the Blues have made the move to Nike, signing their biggest ever commercial deal in the process. These new Chelsea kits will be the first to carry the famous Swoosh and have a number of other key features to match.
Blue is the colour
After adidas’s 2016-17 home shirt used a Lion-based background, the new effort from Nike brings things back to basics, creating a clean, uncluttered look for the boys from the Bridge. Using a darker blue than last year’s, this cool, confident jersey ditches the previous white sides and collar trim, replacing them with tonal blue sleeves that spread to the neckline.
We are the pride
Using the same tonal DNA as the home shirt, the incoming Chelsea away strip makes silver its colour of choice. With blue side striping and added collar embellishment, this proud jersey combines its design features with a pleasingly pure base. Using the second generation Nike Vapor AeroSwift template as its starting point, the result is a change kit fit for champions.
Chelsea return to action later this month, with International Champions Cup fixtures against Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Arsenal, before another Wembley date with the Gunners in August’s Community Shield. Fans though need wait no longer to get their hands on one of next season’s shirts, as the all-new Chelsea home and away kits are available from Kitbag now.
Kitbag is additionally your one-stop shop for jersey personalisation, with name and number printing for a host of Stamford Bridge superstars, using the newly-updated 2017-18 EPL font.
