It’s only October. Even though the World Cup hasn’t started yet, Chelsea has hired their second manager of the year. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a Blue. the next season’s home shirt could have already been released.
Initial images of concept kits have been released in this royal Blue home shirt to be worn in the coming season, just two months following the start of the 2022/23 football season and fans might be impressed by the designs they have seen.
With gold trim and a badge, this kit closely resembles the 2012/13 jersey which was a tribute to those who were Champions League winners from the previous year and continues the simple style of the season following last year’s shirt was a source of controversy with the variety of designs in the kit.
The concept photos, created by football’s headliners illustrate a classic Chelsea blue shirt that has minimal checks as the background is a vague pattern, with its Nike logo. The Chelsea logo and sleeves are all finished in glossy gold. The ideas are based on data that the website has and admits not having the collar’s design.
Chelsea’s new home kit features a collar that is button-less as well as a white trimming that includes an ethereal blue pattern. It is plainer than their previous zig-zag or chequered designs with bright yellow trims. The new style is expected to be an important change from the previous one with Nike opting for more minimalist jerseys for this season, and it may continue in the coming season too.
Chelsea has a relationship in partnership with Nike until 2031 following the signing of the huge 16-year contract with the world’s leading sports brand in 2015. They will continue to use their logo but could have a new primary sponsor as the controversial deal with Three expires in 2023. Three had to end their sponsorship earlier in the year due to the sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich’s assets by the UK government, but they have reopened their support under new ownership. They are the current shirt’s main sponsors.
Footy headliners also say that the brand-new home kit will be made available for purchase from May 2023.
