New Chelsea Home Kit
The new Adidas Chelsea Home Kit for the 2011/2012 Season is now available to order online.
The new Chelsea Home Shirt, inspired by Chelsea's heritage and features the club crest, combines with a striped shadow design on the chest and shoulders. Ensure you're standing proud in the new kit, whether you're watching from the stands, or at home.
The kit has a variety of distinguishing design features, including a white section that has been added to the sleeves and shorts, resulting in adidas’ iconic white three stripes appearing in blue for the first time on a Chelsea strip and creating a distinctive and striking design.
