This is in addition to the already presented titular and alternate models of the Blues with Nike for the new football cycle.
Chelsea FC 2021-22 Nike Third Kit
According to the press release, this shirt takes inspiration from the Nike ACG casual line, adopting a turquoise brushstroke graphic on a dark base over much of the garment’s surface. The back of the neck and sides are painted orange, while the cuffs are solid, matching the front of the neck.
The club’s crest is applied in a monochrome version, in tune with the Nike and sponsor logos on the front and left sleeve. A circular jock tag inside the neck represents “The Pride of London” (a play on words that can be translated as the pride / pride of London).
Black shorts and socks with orange and turquoise highlights complete Chelsea’s third uniform for the new season.
