Nike have blessed Chelsea Football Club with an all-blue anniversary shirt commemorating an iconic moment in the Blues’ history – their domestic cup triumph in 1970.
The jersey is royal blue throughout and features a clean yellow trim on the shorts, badge, socks and even the players’ numbers — all matching the original colourway. As a 50th anniversary tribute to the club’s historic moment, the crest from the 1970 final replay has also been brought back and replicated through a modern silicone execution.
“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.”
The kit will be on pitch for the third-round tie against Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge January 5, and available to cop from January 2 on nike.com/football
