Chelsea Brings Back Classic Yellow Away Kit

The yellow jersey and shorts are complemented by a pair of rush blue socks which feature a yellow band across the shin.

First worn in 1963 and made famous in the '70s, Chelsea’s classic yellow kit returns this season for the first time since the 2014/15 season. In so doing, it helps celebrates the club’s past moments through a modern energy as the club ushers in a new era. 

On the jersey neckline sits a lion from the club crest. Around it reads, “Football is the game,” the second line of the famous Chelsea anthem. "Blue is the color" is the first line, which features in the home jersey, providing continuity between home and away kits.

The custom Knit Tape along the back neckline of the jersey allows improved stretch ability across the kit, enhancing players’ movement and agility.

The new 2018/19 Chelsea away kit will be worn for the first time on July 28. It is available July 20 at nike.com/chelsea and the Stamford Bridge Megastore.
