Fans from London will have extra reasons to splash the cash on the third kit as an aerial view of Stamford Bridge and the surrounding area is depicted on the jersey.
“The dynamic print on the shirt’s centre includes an aerial depiction of Stamford Bridge and its surrounding area, ensuring a link to home even when the team is playing away. Matched with teal blue shorts and orange socks, the new third kit will be worn on our travels during the club’s European campaign this season.”
As is the case with most top European clubs, there are two variants of the jersey.
The Vapor Match kit, which is the one the players actually wear on match days, retails for a whopping £89.95 while it’s shorts, in a similar colorway, will cost you £54.95.
The teal kit is paired with orange stockings and the Match Socks are priced at £24.95.
If you want to be seen in your beloved Chelsea colours but don’t want to shell out so much dough, you could go in for the Stadium kit, which is priced at a relatively cheaper £64.95 while its shorts cost £24.95.
The stockings to go with the watered-down version of the kit will set you back by £14.95. All prices are as per the Chelsea online megastore.
