New 08/09 Chelsea Away Shirt: Pictures

new chelsea away shirt New 08/09 Chelsea Away Shirt: Pictures

Chelsea has confirmed that their new away shirt for the 2008/2009 season will be all black. Designed by Adidas and sponsored by Samsung, the new shirt design is a welcome change from Chelsea’s away shirt that it wore last season, which was a yellow day-glo color.

The new shirt may be partially inspired by the success of Manchester United’s old black away shirt.

    No more yellow?

    Loved the “electric yellow”. Saw one last year in the Adidas Shop on the Las Vegas Strip, and I can tell you I would never wear one, but watching them on TV – they were awesome. Never a doubt about whose Yellow Away kit was on the screen.

    The black = meh

    I’d prefer the badge remain in accurate colors. That was my biggest complaint in the Yellows last year. A little splash of blue on the crest isn’t going to confuse anyone.

    I always thought the yellow strip made them look like ten highlighter pens running across my tv screen.

    They look like referees’ unis.
