Chelsea ‘to wear new 2021-22 home kit for FA Cup and Women’s Champions League finals’… but it is ‘yet to be decided’ whether leaked zig-zag and chequered blue strip will make an appearance at men’s European final

  • Chelsea will reportedly don next season’s home kit for the club’s series of finals
  • The leaked kit will reportedly make an appearance at this Saturday’s FA Cup Final
  • The eccentric design will also be used for the Women’s Champions League final
  • However, it is undecided whether the strip will be used for men’s European final

Chelsea will reportedly wear next season’s home kit for this Saturday’s FA Cup final against Leicester and during the Women’s Champions League final the day after.

According to The Athletic, the club will wear their new 2021-22 home strip for the Wembley showpiece with the Foxes rather than this season’s kit.

The report goes on to confirm that the newly-leaked strip will also be used by Emma Hayes’s side when they take on Barcelona in the Women’s European final.

The Blues will reportedly ditch this season’s home kit for their final appearances this month

However, The Athletic add that no decision has yet been made whether next season’s kit will make an appearance at the men’s Champions League final later this month.

The latest rumoured concept has been revealed by FootyHeadlines, with the new shirt featuring a wacky zig-zag and chequered design while sporting yellow trim and white logos.

The Nike-sponsored home kit is described to be ‘Lyon Blue’ with ‘Opti Yellow’ trim while the shorts feature the same eccentric design at the top.

Next season’s rumoured kit also has a v-collar around the neck with yellow stripes along the side. 

While fans could reportedly see the new kit in two of the club’s upcoming finals, they will have to wait and see if it will feature in their other European final – which is due to be played on May 29.

Following uproar about the final being staged in Istanbul after the UK government placed Turkey on its red list for travel, the Champions League final will now be staged in Porto in Portugal instead.

It comes after the UK government and UEFA failed to reach an agreement over quarantine exemptions for more than  2,000 VIPs, staff and media for the match to be played at Wembley. It will be officially ratified by UEFA on Thursday.

The 50,000-capacity Estadio do Dragao in Porto has now been lined up as the venue for the final after UEFA struck a deal with the Portuguese authorities over the attendance at the match. 

Chelsea and Manchester City will each receive a ticket allocation of between 4,500 and 6,000.
