Chelsea’s new third kits (and first from Nike ever!) for the Champions League competition are certainly turning some heads. The nearly all black Chelsea third jerseys released by Nike this year feature electric blue accents, a camo pattern, and are due to debut in competition on September 27th.
While the camo patterning may seem out of place in soccer, Nike went on to elaborate that their choice is meant to reflect the way the modern soccer game is constantly growing and overlapping with different playing styles as players from all over the world learn and are inspired by seeing one another’s style.
Nike didn’t stop at just the new style. The third jersey features Nike AeroSwift technology which results in a jersey that’s at least 10% lighter, dries 25% faster, and has 50% more stretch than last years jersey. Designed to thrive at top speed, this jersey is just as comfortable on the couch as it is on the pitch.
Chelsea have to wait until the 27th to finally wear their jersey, but you can order yours right now from soccercorner.com, with customization options also available so that you can support your favorite player with pride.
