Chelsea’s new third kit for the 2018/2019 season has officially been unveiled and it’s garnered a massive reaction on social media.
The west London outfit have already played in their two new kits this season, as the Blues were decked out in their stunning new yellow away shirt for the trip to west Yorkshire against Huddersfield Town in their Premier League opener.
In terms of the club’s new home design, that has divided many fans, but the return to yellow, last worn in their successful title win in 2014/15, has gone down extremely well.
The new third kit features NikeConnect technology in a football shirt for the first time.
Chelsea FC commercial director, Chris Townsend OBE, said : “We are delighted to be working alongside Nike to bring our supporters a real innovation with the introduction of NikeConnect technology in our third kit.
“This is a world first for football and highlights the strength of the relationship between Nike and the club.
“We hope our fans will enjoy tapping in to unlock exclusive Nike and Chelsea experiences and prizes as we make our way through the 2018/19 campaign.”
As expected, many Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter and reacted to the unveiling of the new third kit.
