Chelsea have revealed their third kit for big European nights ahead of the new Champions League campaign.
The reigning European champions find out who they will face in the group stage of the tournament later today as they look to defend the trophy they won in Porto back in May.
They claim the kit is ‘reflective’ of the club’s ‘youthful energy’ and inspired by ‘London streetwear fashion’.
The green and black shirt also has crimson which is said to add ‘vibrancy’ and a ‘pop of colour’.
Chelsea’s statement with the launch of the kit on the official website said: ‘As Chelsea aim to add further honours to the Champions League title we won last season, the club’s 2021-22 third kit is reflective of a modern era for the club, characterised by youthful energy and everything that represents.’
It adds: ‘The green and black has long been associated with statement Nike outerwear pieces, the crimson adds vibrancy and that pop of colour is reflective of the club’s youthful energy.’
Meanwhile on social media they said the shirt was ready to take ‘centre stage under the European lights’.
There is a ‘Pride of London’ logo on the inside of the jersey which is claimed to ‘serve a reminder of the club’s values and status in the capital’.
The kit is constructed with recycled polyester fabric from plastic bottles which is said to ‘allow the kit to help deliver peak performance,’ while reducing the impact on the environment.
Chelsea stars Mateo Kovacic, Hakim Ziyech and Antonio Rudiger are all seen pictured in the new jersey.
Most fans on social media liked the kit, while others instead asked about when the club will confirm the signings of Jules Kounde from Sevilla and Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid.
One supporter commented: ‘No way you’ve made a kit that I can like from first sight’ while another Twitter user replied: ‘We love it… But announce Saul and Kounde ASAP.’
