Chelsea FC launches 2018/19 home kit, with Yokohama returning as shirt sponsor
Yokohama’s logo will continue to appear on Chelsea FC’s home shirt in the 2018/19 season. The club launched its 2018/19 home kit, which will be worn by the first team and both the Chelsea Academy and Ladies teams throughout the 2018/19 season.
The new kit takes inspiration from the famous and much-loved jerseys of the 1980s and ‘90s. In addition to Chelsea’s blue, the shirt adds horizontal red and white lines. The jersey is complemented by the traditional blue shorts and white socks, brightened by a horizontal red and blue trim at the knee. The kit is also designed to convey the club’s proud heritage with two subtle features. High up on the back of the neckline of the shirt sits a small lion borrowed from the club crest. Inside the jersey, the words ‘Blue is the Colour’ can be found, the opening line from the Chelsea anthem.
The shirt is available immediately at nike.com/chelsea and the Stamford Bridge Megastore.
