Flashes of colour feature on the shirt, with “dazzling horizontal red and white lines vibrantly standing out against the famous Chelsea blue”.

The jersey is complemented by the traditional blue shorts and white socks, which include a horizontal red and blue trim at the knee.

Meanwhile, there are two subtle inner features which give a nod to Chelsea’s pride and heritage.

High up on the back of the neckline of the shirt sits a small lion, an instantly recognisable symbol borrowed from the club crest, while Inside the jersey, the words ‘Blue is the Colour’ – the opneing line from the Chelsea anthem – can be found.
