adidas Reveal Chelsea 2014/15 Away Shirt

adidas and Chelsea have unveiled their new away shirt for the 2014/15 season, inspired by famous yellow kits from the club's past.

Chelsea have turned to a classic shirt for the team to wear on their travels next season. The idea of bringing yellow back to the kit is that adidas believe Chelsea fans of all ages will have great memories of the strip. From Peter Osgood in the 1960s and 1970s, through to unforgettable moments with Clive Walker in the 1980s, Gianfranco Zola in the 1990s up to Frank Lampard's memorable winner in the FA Cup final of 2009. 

As with the new Chelsea home shirt, the jersey features the latest in adiZero lightweight technology making it the lightest Chelsea away shirt ever produced. The finishing touches of the shirt include a polo collar which pays tribute to the retro designs, as well as an iconic blue stripe across the back which contrasts the two traditional Chelsea colours.

The yellow shirt has an added link this year, a tribute to Chelsea's Brazilian contingent of players - David Luiz, Oscar, Ramires & Willian, who will be heading to their homeland for the World Cup.
