Chelsea Football Club today revealed its home kit for the 2023/24 English Premier League, EFL Cup, and FA Cup seasons. The Nike jersey pays homage to the legendary ’97/’98 campaign, when the Blues won three trophies in Europe and England, wearing a similar blue and white design. The kit also features gold accents and an iridescent crest, reflecting the glamor and prestige of the King’s Road in the ’90s.
The 97/98 season was one of the most memorable in Chelsea’s history, as the club lifted the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, the League Cup and the UEFA Super Cup, under the guidance of Gianluca Vialli. The team was packed with stars like Gianfranco Zola, Dennis Wise, Roberto Di Matteo and many more, who wore the iconic blue and white shirts with pride.
The new Chelsea home shirt for 23/24 celebrates that glorious past, while also looking to the future. Its Nike Dri-FIT ADV technology ensures that the players stay cool and dry throughout the game, with a breathable FIT ADV weave that evaporates sweat. Gold details add a touch of elegance and sophistication, while the iridescent crest showcases the roaring lion – a symbol of Chelsea’s history and heritage.
The kit also features an interior shirt detail that reminds us that Chelsea FC is still the ‘Pride of London’, no matter what changes happen at the club. The new kit is a blend of tradition and innovation, honoring the past and embracing the future.
