Chelsea unveil yellow away kit for 2018-19 season

The Blues will wear yellow on their travels this season, with Nike keen to commemorate the club's history

Chelsea have revealed their away kit for the 2018-19 season, a bold yellow number!

The Blues wore yellow throughout the 1960s and 70s, but have not had a yellow kit since the 2014-15 season, when they won the Premier League title.

Nike claim that the kit is designed to celebrate "past moments through a modern energy" as Chelsea "usher in a new era".

The kit will make its official debut in the club's clash with Inter Milan in Nice on July 28. Chelsea revealed their new home strip in May, using it in their final game of the 2017-18 season, a 3-0 defeat to Newcastle which saw them miss out on a Champions League spot.

A number of new players could wear the kit this season, with Jorginho having already been secured from Napoli, their first signing under new manager Maurizio Sarri, and the club keen to acquire Daniele Rugani from Juventus. The Blues are also interested in Rugani's current team-mate Gonzalo Higuain.

Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois may soon depart, however, with both players interesting Spanish giants Real Madrid.
