Chelsea Football Club (CFC) will celebrate 50 years since its FA Cup triumph of 1970 with an anniversary shirt commemorating the iconic moment in the Blues’ history.
Paying tribute to the club’s historic moment, the crest from the 1970 final replay against Leeds United has been brought back with this commemorative kit and is replicated through a modern silicone execution.
The Chelsea FC 2019/20 Nike fourth jersey is royal blue throughout, while yellow pulls through in the trim on the shorts, badge, socks and even the players’ numbers — all matching the original colorway.
The Nike Swoosh and sponsor logos are all in tonal blue to give the shirt the look of unsponsored early 1970s football kits.
“It’s a classy, stylish and sophisticated shirt — a great way of remembering the iconic team of 1970,” says CFC midfielder Mason Mount. “We know fans of all ages are going to love its simple design.”
Chelsea FC will debut their 19/20 Nike Cup kt on pitch for their FA Cup third-round tie against Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge January 5, and is available January 2 at World Soccer Shop, UK Soccer Shop, Lovell Soccer, Pro:Direct Soccer and Kitbag.
