Chelsea’s home kit for the 2021/22 campaign has been spotted on sale in Mexico – and the unusual design is likely to divide opinion amongst supporters.
The new strip is a controversial one to say the least, with Nike opting for a very different look to this season’s kit.
Football kits website Footy Headlines have released photos of the design, which features an abstract zig-zag and checker all-over print on the shirt.
The Nike logo is completely yellow, while the ’3’ emblem has been left in white, and the club badge has been left in its standard colour with a yellow trim around the outside.
It also has a v-collar as opposed to this year’s crew neck, along with yellow stripes along the sides.
On the back of the collar, the acronym ‘CFC’ can be found in yellow font.
The shorts are also blue with yellow stripes, while the socks are white with yellow and blue features.
It is believed the kit will be officially released in May 2021 ahead of the conclusion of this season’s Premier League.
