Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea Football Club unveiled their 2017/18 Nike third kit ahead of their 6-0 trouncing of Qarabag FK in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
The striking new Blues jersey will be available at World Soccer Shop, UK Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, Lovell Soccer, Pro:Direct Soccer and Kitbag along with their first ever Nike home and away shirts.
Chelsea will debut their 17/18 third kit when they visit Atlético Madrid’s new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on September 27th in UCL action.
A series of dark greys form the dominant color palate of kit, with a dazzle camo knit design that reflects the growing overlap between the worlds of football and style.
Vibrant, eye-catching detailing in a modern electric blue features throughout, from the stripes running along the shoulders and arms to the player names and numbers, as well as the bold “CFC” on the socks.
As in Chelsea’s 2017/18 home and away match collections, the most advanced football apparel technology, Nike AeroSwift, is employed for the club’s first ever Nike third kit. The AeroSwift design process creates a lightweight product and facilitates performance at the highest level. The resulting kits are 10% lighter and dry 25% faster than previous Nike kits, with 50% more stretch.
