Four-time English Premier League / First Division and and six-time FA Cup champions Chelsea FC have unveiled their adidas 2012/13 home outfield player and goalkeeper kits. Both will be available at World Soccer Shop, Onionbag and Subside Sports.
According to a press release from adidas: Chelsea Football Club and adidas today unveiled the new home shirt for the 2012/13 football season. The strip carries a gold theme, reflective of the year of sport and celebration in the capital in 2012.
The new Chelsea FC home kit sees the adidas, Samsung and club crest all turned completely gold. This theme is reflected in the iconic three stripes across the shoulders and the ‘CFC’ motif seen on the rear of the neck.
Subtle dark blue stripes also feature through the front of the shirt. The look is finished off with gold piping around the arms and neck. This design detail is repeated through the shorts and socks both of which feature golden three-stripes on Chelsea’s famous blue.
The 2012/13 shirt again features the adidas Techfitâ„¢ technology in the playing shirt which is proven to enhance performance.
TechFit – The players’ kit will incorporate adidas’ cutting edge TechFit technology to help improve speed, increased endurance capabilities and enhanced awareness. This works by stabilising and focusing the muscles’ energy to generate explosive acceleration and deliver maximum power output.
Climacool -The shirts also feature adidas ClimaCool technology, a mixture of heat and moisture controlling materials, ventilation channels and 3D fabrics which improve air flow to the skin in the key heat zones.
