The Sun newspaper has published a photograph of the new Chelsea home shirt, which will be available for the 2008/2009 season.
Modeled by Frank Lampard, the new shirt features more of a retro feel than the current Chelsea design. The new shirt features yellow trim lines, which are more prominent than the current blue and white colors. Plus, the jersey features a completely different collar design.
Also of note is the slight difference in sponsor name from the current “Samsung Mobile” to “Samsung.”
Personally, I love the new design. It’s more elegant than the futuristic design of the current shirt. The new shirt has more of a warm feeling. Hopefully, Chelsea and Adidas will replace the horrid flourescent yellow away jersey as well as the third shirt.
