The new away kit is inspired by famous yellow kits from Chelsea’s past.
Fans of all generations will have memories of a yellow away strip from its first outings with the likes of Peter Osgood in the 1960’s and 70’s, through to great moments with Clive Walker in the 1980’s and Gianfranco Zola in the 1990’s, right up to Frank Lampard’s memorable winner in the 2009 FA Cup Final.
The new away shirt will be the lightest Chelsea away shirt ever produced, featuring the latest in adiZero lightweight technology and a polo collar, which pays tribute to the retro designs, as well as an iconic blue stripe across the back which contrasts the two traditional Chelsea colours.
Reaction from the fans seems to be mainly positive as it was with the new home kit which we reported on here.
