Chelsea Launch Third Shirt for 2013-14 Season: Official [PHOTOS]

Chelsea today launched their third shirt for the 2013-14 season.

It’s the same one that was leaked in March. Designed by adidas, the all black shirt with black shorts and black socks is another kit that’s fashionably black. But in this case, there are some distinct differences — namely a silver trim featuring the three adidas stripes down the arm, white stripes on the side of the shirt and the Chelsea logo in silver.

The new design continues a tradition of black-based kits manufactured by adidas for Chelsea, since taking over the contract in 2006. Black is a color long associated with the club as the first kits featured black socks until 1959, with the first all-black away kit debuted in the 2002/03 season.

The new kit is designed to represent “the future of football” with sleek matte black-on-black prints lining a mesh panel which allows for optimal ventilation. The futuristic design is further complimented by the metallic silver three stripes which run down the sleeves and the black and silver finish to the club badge.

    It’s not hideous looking but I will probably just get the new away jersey.

  2. CTBlues says:

    I was hoping for a yellow kit like the one from 09.

    It’s too bad I can’t see since the ad doesn’t play and it just sits there with a black screen
