This is the new Chelsea home kit 2019/20, CFC’s new home strip for the upcoming Premier League season. The new CFC home jersey was officially unveiled on May 1, 2019 by Nike, a few days after Liverpool became the first PL team to reveal theirs.
This new Chelsea shirt, at first glance, is perhaps not what you’d expect from a primary jersey. The design on the front is apparently inspired by Stamford Bridge, the Blues’ home ground.
Inside the back of the neck is a lion (taken from the club crest), with the words “Pride of London”. On the back of the shirt is “CFC” lettering. Blue shorts and predominantly white socks with red and blue trim complete the look of the new Chelsea 2019/20 uniform. Continue reading

The kit is a tribute to legendary Liverpool manager Bob Paisley, who was born in 1919. To mark 100 years of Paisley, the top features thin white pinstripes, that were first introduced to the uniform back in 1982/83, when Paisley managed the Reds.
The inside of the jersey also features Paisley’s signature.

Championship outfit Reading FC have announced a change in kit partners ahead of the 2019/20 season, with Italian firm Macron set to take over from Puma. The Royals have inked a three year deal with Macron, which will see them outfit Reading till the end of the 2021/22 season.
Puma have been Reading FC’s partners for nearly one and a half decades ago, having begun their association with the club back in the 2004/05 season. Reading wore Puma kits for the three seasons they were in the Premier League- 2006/07, 2007/08 and 2012/13. They came close to returning to the top flight in 2017, but lost in the playoff final to Huddersfield Town.
At the time of writing, Reading are 19th in the EFL Championship, with 42 points from 44 games.
