Chelsea 2017/18 Nike Home & Away Shirts

Chelsea Football Club will wear Nike for the first time in their 112-year history as the club reveal their 2017/18 home & away shirts on the back of their multi-year partnership with the Swoosh.

Threaded with a minimal aesthetic across home and away designs, Chelsea and Nike have adopted a sleek style for their debut season together. The home strip replicates the blue shade from the early 1970s and the away kit is coated in a subtle silver colouring as a nod to Chelsea's illustrious silverware success, including the 2016/17 Premier League title.

Some description

The round neckline includes a white trim with “CHELSEA” knitted into the back of the neck in white text, while “THE BLUES” is knitted onto the inside cuff of the right sleeve, with “EST. 1905,” a nod to the year of the club’s foundation, on the left sleeve.

Some description

The shirt and shorts of the away kit are white with a soft silver hue to reflect the club’s ever-growing collection of silverware with ventilation stripes on the shorts and providing a block of colour for the NikeGrip socks, whilst the same references – “CHELSEA”, “EST. 1905” and “THE BLUES” – are embedded into the fabric.
