Chelsea have confirmed their new Nike away kit for the upcoming 2021/22 campaign.
The brand new away kit is yellow with horizontal black lines going across the shirt, with the Nike logo on the right as usual, the Chelsea crest above the heart and the ‘3’ symbol directly in the middle.
The last time the Blues rocked a yellow away kit was in the 2018/19 season in their second campaign with Nike as the kit manufacturer.
The west London club, on their website, say: “The pinstripe detail is a nod to kits of the past, but are refreshed by the alignment with black, representative of this new era of youthful energy taking over the club.”
As Chelsea mentioned, the kit is trying to represent the youth stars of today – with one of them being Mason Mount, who came through the Blues’ academy system.
On the 2021/22 away strip, Mount said: “When you look over the years, you always remember the yellow kits on our heroes that made an impact.
“As players I feel we can do the same and create even more special moments in this new kit!”
The kit is complete with black shorts and yellow socks – with a black stripe – and ‘hidden accents in the neckline’. The ‘Pride of London’ logo is visible on the inside of the shirt.
The new strip is made out of 100% polyester fabric, made from recycled plastic bottles.
Chelsea fans are able to shop on the club’s official website now and purchase the new kit, that Thomas Tuchel’s side could wear for the first time next month with the new Premier League season kicking off.
