The Chelsea 18-19 home kit was revealed this morning, ahead of a debut in this weekend's Premier League game away against Newcastle.
Complementing the blue and white, Chelsea's 2018-2019 shirt includes a fair bit of red in the form of tapered stripes that run from the edges towards the center, both on the front and back. They alternate with similar white stripes to create a unique look unlike anything the club has ever worn - although in general it's inspired by some of the classic Chelsea shirts from the 1980s and 90s.
The Nike Chelsea 18-19 home kit is based on the latest generation of the Vapor template. It is lighter than ever before and features a brand-new construction with a new knit pattern on the front, back and sleeves.
The inner pride graphic, placed on the inside neck of the new Chelsea home shirt, comes with a "Blue is the Colour" writing, the opening line from the Chelsea anthem.
The shorts and socks of the Chelsea 18-19 Nike home kit are blue and white, respectively, with the latter featuring blue and red trim.
