New 08/09 Chelsea Away and Third Shirts Revealed

Recently EPL Talk shared a picture of the new 08/09 Chelsea home shirt that appeared in a British tabloid newspaper. If you haven’t had a chance to see the new Chelsea away and third shirts for the 2008/2009 season, here they are (courtesy of Football Shirt Culture):

A sigh of relief will be heard around the world when football fans learn that Chelsea won’t be wearing their highlighter inspired shirt next season, but will instead be wearing a more contemporary yellow color without the fluorescent glow. The design of the new shirt is according to the new Adidas template design. The collar, it should be noted, is different than the Chelsea home shirt but consistent with the Chelsea third shirt.

Third shirt:

While Liverpool are supposedly dropping their black third shirt for 2008/2009 and replacing it with green, Chelsea has instead decided to drop its white third shirt and wear black. Again, there are no surprises to the Adidas template design, but I personally much prefer this black one compared to the white shirt that the club currently wears.
