Chelsea officially released the new home kit for the 2018/19 season on Friday morning but some fans aren’t happy with the design.
Whilst retaining sponsors Nike and Yokohama Tyres, which featured on the current home strip, there is a notable difference of the shirt’s fonts for the next campaign.
The stage is lit.
Introducing our 2018/19 @nikefootball home kit!

The Red and White dashes have been the main talking points from Chelsea supporters, with the red being re-implemented as a symbol relating to the Chelsea pensioners.
In the past fans have called the outlook of the Blues’ home kit boring, which is anything but that this season.
However, Chelsea fans on social media are still not totally satisfied for the shirt our players will be donning next season at Stamford Bridge.
Same kit with some lines on it. Nike need to step their game up for 18/19.
