Chelsea Football Club are celebrating 50 years since their FA Cup triumph in 1970 with an anniversary shirt to commemorate the iconic moment in the Blues’ history. Oh, and it's beautifully retro and it'll even feature on pitch.

Paying tribute to the club's historic moment, the crest from the 1970 FA Cup final replay has been brought back with this commemorative kit and is replicated through a modern silicone execution. The jersey is royal blue throughout, while yellow pulls through in the trim on the shorts, badge, socks and even the players’ numbers — all matching the original colorway.


“It’s a classy, stylish and sophisticated shirt — a great way of remembering the iconic team of 1970," says CFC midfielder Mason Mount. "We know fans of all ages are going to love its simple design.”

You're not wrong Mason. You came for that retro club crest and you're staying for those yellow socks, but the main charm this kit is packing is those majestically nostalgic numbers on the rear of the shirt which the players will each wear when Chelsea take on Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup Third Round on January 5.


The Chelsea special edition commemorative kit will be available to buy from January 2.
