New Chelsea kit leaked after Yokohama Rubber deal

Published 4 Comments

Chelsea will have a new shirt sponsor from next season after it was revealed this week that the club had agreed an enormously lucrative deal with Yokohama Rubber, a Tokyo based tyre manufacturing company.

The Premier League leaders will pocket a huge £220 million over the duration of the contract for the pleasure of having the company’s logo on their shirts, and this will be emblazoned on the Chelsea kits from the start of next term.

This, of course, means that Chelsea will release another new set of strips come the end of this campaign, and there are already images doing the rounds on social media purporting what they could look like.

If these designs are indeed those that Chelsea have chosen then we are fans, although they hardly represent much of a change from the Adidas efforts of recent seasons.

There is, of course, little that can be done with an all blue home shirt but it is the alternative strips - the away and third choice - that lack imagination given those Chelsea have worn in the past couple of years.

Gone is the traditional away yellow that Chelsea are wearing this season and in comes the white reverse strip with blue and red trim - just as they west London club had during Mourinho’s first campaign back at Stamford Bridge.

Black is become a colour familiar with Chelsea when it comes to their third choice kit and, like the two alternatives, it is a traditional and simple design - just the way we like it here.

What do you make of these ‘leaked’ Chelsea kits?
