season as well.
That is why many rumors and speculations have been spiraling around the club’s leaked information, exciting fans more than ever, inviting them to guess how their favorite club’s kits for the next season are going to turn out. Chelsea have already introduced their first kit for the next season, but the away and third kits are still a mystery and people are debating about the details and the colors on the web. That’s why we have decided to provide you all the details available on Chelsea’s 2021-22 Season Home, Away, and 3rd Kits.
But before moving further and discussing the latest news available, why not take a brief walk through history and learn more about the past kits and the traditional colors that Chelsea have worn throughout the years since the club was founded 116 years ago in 1905?
Chelsea are literally known by their nickname “The Blues”, which obviously tells you what color they primarily wear each season. Their iconic blue shirts, blue shorts and white socks have etched an unforgettable image on the minds of every football lover. But it evidently the colors were not always the same since the beginning. The Blues of London began their journey in football wearing blue shirts, but the tone of the original blue was a much paler eton blue instead, which was inspired by the racing colors of Earl Cadogan.
The eton blue shirt used to be worn with white shorts and black socks, a trend which continued even after the main shirt color was changed to royal blue instead. With the primary color of Chelsea being replaced with royal blue back in 1912, the club’s traditional and iconic blue was born, which gave way to the modern Chelsea kit. White initially the shirt was worn with white shorts and black socks until the 1960s, Tommy Docherty, the then club manager, decided to switch the colors and use blue shorts and white socks instead.
Back then, no other major side used such as color combination, thus making Chelsea’s color palette a truly unique one in Europe. The main colors have seen little to no changes over the years, except for short period from 1985 to 1992, when the English club wore blue socks instead. As one of the most famous and widely supported clubs in the world, Chelsea have also had quite distinct away kits as well. They have used bright and dazzling colors such as all yellow kits and even all white kits.
Those interested to know more about

already know that the club’s recent away kits have also included darker shades of blue and black. While Chelsea’s away colors are usually traditionally primary and simple colors with simple designs, Chelsea supporters have also witnessed unusual designs over the years. The pensioners have, for instance, donned strange lookalike designs such as the black and white vertical stripes that they used for the 1966 FA Cup semifinal.
There have also been many other strange designs over the years, including the graphite and tangerine colored kits, the luminous yellow kit, the red and white diamonds and the all jade strip. These designs have been introduced over the years by several kit manufacturers, with each world-renowned sportswear company having their turn to shine as the proud sponsors of one of the best clubs in the world. Both Nike and Adidas have sponsored Chelsea’s kits over the years, with Nike actually high-jacking Adidas’ contract by signing a 15-year deal in 2017, which is worth around a whopping £900.
What does this deal mean
Chelsea's 2021/22 home, away and third kit
? Read on as we dissect the speculations around the possible designs for Chelsea’s kits for next season.
Chelsea fans are used to new daring and avant-garde designs every now and then, which is why they weren’t surprised when Nike and Chelsea unveiled their new home kit for the next season. According to the latest news on
Chelsea’s 2021-22 Season Home, Away, and 3rd Kits
, the club unveiled their new home kit a couple of weeks ago earlier in May, with the team set to wear their new shirts for the FA Cup final.
The shirt is claimed to have been made with 100% recycled plastic and it fashions the same old royal blue color, with several changes made to the overall design. There are new details added to the plain and simple color of the previous version as Nike have decided to add a couple of patterns to the shirt. The patterns include a chequered style of light and dark shades of blue on the left side of the shirt, taking up what seems like one third of the whole area until half of the club’s badge.
The other pattern includes a not-so-orderly zig-zag style with the same two shades of blue, which takes up two third of the shirt from the right side. While the “Three” logo is still white, the Nike logo features a lighter shade of yellow, with the same color used for the stripes on each side of the shirt. The club’s letters “CFC” can be seen on the V-style collar with the same light yellow color as well.
Unfortunately, it seems that this style has not yet found its fans and is somehow regarded as a “bad charm” after Chelsea lost the FA Cup final with a 1-0 defeat againstLeicester City
while wearing their new home kit.
That is why the club decided to switch back to the old design and use their 2020-21 home kit in the Champions League final win over Manchester City, where they created history by winning their second-ever UCL title. We will have to wait and see if the new design can redeem itself in the new season, or if superstition is going to ruin Chelsea’s new campaign.
Just as we had previously discussed the news on
Chelsea's away kit for 2021/22 leaks
, the rumors and speculations have proven to be correct as the Blues have dropped their new away kit for the new season. It was previously mentioned that Chelsea were going back to their roots with a traditional color and design, which included the colors yellow and black. We have had a couple of similar designs and color palettes before as the club have used the primary color of yellow combined with their royal blue color in the past.
That is actually why Nike have decided to nod to the past with a simple and traditional design. Those who have been following Chelsea's away kit for 2021/22 leaks would already know that a similar design to what has been unveiled was speculated about prior to the start of Euro 2020.
But what does the new design look like? You might ask. Well, the new away kit features a light yellow as its main color, which is decorated with the color black. The base of the kit is yellow, while the color black is used on one-third of the collar, the end point of the sleeves, on the Nike badge, and on the outside borders of the sponsors’ logos and the club’s own badge.
The inside of the sponsor logos and the clubs badge also use the color yellow with a darker tone, which highlights their position on the kit and stops them from blending into the shirt too much. The shirt also features black horizontal striped lines, which have been implemented onto the shirt as a way of decorating it into something more than a simple yellow shirt.
Just like the home kit and just like the kits of other clubs in the Premier League, Chelsea and Nike have decided to manufacture their kits using 100 per cent recycled material, which is mainly recycled polyester fabric. The fabric is claimed to have come from recycled bottles that were gathered from the ocean, which in turn saves the environment.
The decision to use such material stems from the fact that Europe aim to reduce their carbon emission to zero in the coming years. If you too are excited to get your hands on a new set of Chelsea’s away kit, you can purchase it online, with the prices starting from €88.
After so much speculation and after going through several leaked images in the past few weeks, the Blues of London have finally unveiled their new third kit for the 2021-22 season. We should give credit where credit is due and the credit obviously goes to everyone who somehow get their hands on early images of such long-awaited kits and get to share accurate details prior to the official unveiling.
Taking a look back at the previous leaked images and going through the speculations that were the talk of the town in recent weeks, we can confirm that almost every leaked detail has turned out to be true and the club’s third kit does indeed feature those details. The new third kit features two different shades of blue on its base and uses the two shades with a paintbrush design that gives the shirt itself a more modern feel that other third kits in the Premier League.
Aside from the familiar shades of blue that Nike have incorporated into Chelsea’s third kit, they have also made use of the color orange and a lighter tone of the same color. While the side stripes come in full orange mode, the back of the collar, the club’s crest, the Nike Swoosh and the sponsors’ logos all appear in a lighter tone of orange that might even seem pink to some viewers. Of course the previously leaked images actually showed the new kit incorporating a tone of pink rather than orange.
While the front of the collar and the cuff follow the same color palette that appears on the base of the shirt and use the navy-blue color, the back of the collar features the same light-orange color that the crests and logos have used on the front of the shirt. Chelsea’s official Instagram account unveiled the new third kit with the following caption:
“Introducing our 21/22 nikefootball Third Kit! Inspired by iconic outdoor brand Nike ACG, with signature bold prints and vibrant colours, ready to take centre stage under the European lights.” Chelsea have drawn Juventus, Zenit and Malmo in the Group H of the Champions League and will surely be enjoying their new third kit as reigning champions. We will have to wait and see if their new kits could be as lucky as their previous kits, which helped them win the UCL last campaign.
