Chelsea have unveiled their new 2018/19 Nike home kit, which takes inspiration from the club’s “much-loved jerseys of the 1980s and ’90s.
Blues stars Eden Hazard, Willian, Victor Moses, Cesar Azpilicueta, Nathaniel Chalobah and the PFA Women’s Players’ Player of the Year Fran Kirby were among those who were pictured wearing the new strip on Friday morning.
“Chelsea FC’s 2018-19 home kit, to be worn by the men’s, women’s and academy teams, takes inspiration from the much-loved jerseys of the 1980s and 90s,” a press statement from Nike read.
“Those strips featured pops of red against Chelsea’s famous blue, and these return on the new shirt in the form of dazzling horizontal red and white lines. Blue shorts and white socks, brightened by a horizontal red and blue trim at the knee, complete the kit.”
The Blues’ new home kit will be worn for the first time on 13 May, in the club’s final league game of the season, away at Newcastle United.
