Chelsea will change there kit manufacturer to Nike at the end of the season after 10 year deal with Adidas comes to an end.
In October the Blues signed a £60m-a-season deal with Nike which is expected to last for 15 years. This has left many fans excited to see how the new kits will look for next season.
As usual it’s Footy Headlines that have the first pictures of basic kit designs and colours having posted them on there website and social media channels.
A Chelsea shirt is always going to be blue, the shade of blue is what we want to know. It’ll be a similar shade of those used by NFL’s team New York Giants, which is a bit darker and paler than the colour used by Adidas for the last few home shirts (Chelsea Blue).
