The home shirt is the most popular purchase for Chelsea football fans, and for the 2016/17 season Adidas has produced a designed that highlights the tradition and heritage of the club that was initially founded in 1905.
The 2016/17 Chelsea football kit is of course blue in color, and the front panel of the jersey features multiple repetitions of the clubs lion logo. The lion is a darker blue in color creating a subtle design. The lion crest was adopted by the club in 1953, and was inspired by the Coat of Arms of the Viscount Chelsea, who was president of the club at the time. Prior to the lion the club’s crest featured the image of a pensioner, representing the army veterans at the Royal Hospital Chelsea and giving rise to the nickname ‘The Pensioners”.
Traditions of the Chelsea Football Kit
Blue has always been the chosen color for the Chelsea kits however, initially the team wore a lighter shade of blue referred to as Eton blue. In 1912 the now infamous royal blue shade was introduced, and has remained the color for the home shirt ever since. Blue football shorts were introduced in the 1960’s and the combination of matching jersey and shorts remains to this day.
For the 2016/17 football season the home kit is once again made by Adidas and features a modern V-neck jersey with blue shorts. Adidas has moved their iconic 3-stripe logo from the usual position on the shoulders to the flanks of the jersey creating a bold and modern look. The shirts feature the embroidered crest, Adidas logo and printed Yokohama Tyres sponsor.
