This is the new Chelsea home kit 2016/2017, Chelsea FC’s new principal uniform for the upcoming Premier League season. Made by Adidas, the new CFC 16/17 home shirt was officially unveiled on May 4, 2016 (also the birthday of Blues star Cesc Fabregas)
Chelsea are the second Premiership outfit to reveal their 16/17 uniform after Sunderland, who unveiled their new strip last week.
Chelsea had a poor 2015/16 season as they failed to defend the trophy they won in 2014/15. They also parted ways with coach Jose Mourinho and appointed Guus Hiddink as caretaker manager. Hiddink will however not be in charge in 2016/17, with Italian coach Antonio Conte set to take over the reigns at Stamford Bridge
However it was Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Spurs at Stamford Bridge on Monday that handed Leicester City the title.
The kits have been sponsored by Yokohama Tyres and are available in two versions for supporters to purchase.
The jersey is predominantly blue, as you’d expect, with the lion from the club crest also appearing on the front.
