Nike launch Chelsea’s third kit for the 2019/20 season with another ’90s theme.
Chelsea’s third kit celebrates a special era for the club honouring their special time at Stamford Bridge, with the flashes of bright orange contrasting against the black – similar to the away shirt from 1994-1996.
“You can see the ’90s influence in fashion at the moment, and I think the kit will appeal to pretty much everyone,” says Blues midfielder Mason Mount. “Younger fans will like that it has a streetwear vibe and older fans will appreciate the sentimentality, remembering club legends who donned the famous jersey and their memories of going to games.”
In addition to the orange trim on the sleeves and on the old school style squared-off collar, the shirt features the main sponsor logo (Yokohama Tyres) in white across the chest area, Hyundai across the left sleeve with a retro Nike Futura logo.
An embossed ‘CFC’ pattern runs down in a diagonal line across the shirt. “Chelsea FC” is printed across the neckline, above the Nike logo and a club crest that stands out thanks to an elevated trim.
The retro kit set with the ’90s theme has font borrowed from ’90s match-day programs, adding another nice feature to the shirt.
“The changes at Chelsea were reflective of the wider changes sweeping through English football in the early ’90s,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “For the new season we’ve combined design elements from that era with our modern Nike innovations, and hopefully this kit will spark a few memories of what was a special time at Stamford Bridge.
Black shorts and bright orange socks with the Nike logo midway up the shin completes the third kit.
Chelsea will debut the new third kit on October 2nd when they play Lille in the start of their European campaign.
Chelsea Home Kit for the 2019/20 season
The traditional blue clours of the home kit got an upgrade with inspiration from the Blue’s stadium ‘Stamford Bridge’. The stadium is woven into the very fabric of the new kit with all over graphic covering the home shirt.
The shirt features a stylish V-neck, red and white ‘CFC’ monogram decorates the back of the collar. Inside, a Lion borrowed from the club crest is featured with the ‘PRIDE OF LONDON’ written around it, symbolising the Blues’ mantra and what they represent.
Blue shorts with white socks with blue and red hoops below the knee complete the home kit for the 2019/20 season.
