English Premier League second place finishers Chelsea FC have unveiled their third kit for the 2011/12 season. Its launch follows that of the Chelsea FC 2011/12 home kit in April and that of the Blues 2011/12 away shirt in early June. The Chelsea adidas 11/12 kits are now available at the World Soccer Shop Chelsea store.
The Chelsea adidas 2011/12 third kit features a 1970s look and incorporates the club’s traditional alternate colors of white, yellow and dark blue. It was used by Chelsea’s Under-15 team at the recently concluded Manchester United Premier Cup World Finals 2011.
According to the Chelsea FC website:
The sleek and stylish white shirt features bold colour blocking in navy and yellow on the upper chest.
The playing shirt features the adidas TechFitâ„¢ technology which will 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.
The replica shirt incorporates adidas Climacoolâ„¢ 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.
