While the current Premier League season is not yet over and Chelsea are still struggling to secure their place in the Top 4, Nike is already unveiling Thomas Tuchel’s new men’s home shirt for the 2021-2022 season.
With Manchester City and Manchester United, Chelsea bring the Premier League back to the fore in Europe as they will play in the Champions League final against Pep Guardiola’s men on May 29. Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea are the team of the moment and the football world is witnessing its metamorphosis with wonder. Nike is now taking advantage of this end of the season to be suspended to present the new tunic that N’Golo Kanté and his teammates will probably wear at least once by the end of the season.
It’s that time of the season. 🔊👕Introducing our new 2021/22 @NikeFootball home kit. Inspired by the 60s, but as fresh as they come 🔥 ft. @TheZombiesMusic#ItsAChelseaThing #ThePrideOfLondon pic.twitter.com/aPpMtgcdJF

Equipped by Nike since 2017, the Blues will sport a new, very sober blue home jersey with white flocking omnipresent in the history of the Blues. This new tunic is therefore in line with the latest Nike designs for residents of Stamford Bridge. If the last jerseys of the club had already moved away from those of yesteryear with designs that are at least original, the comma brand has taken the next step for the 2021-2022 season.
This tunic is divided between royal blue and navy blue through a zigzag design in the center of the jersey and a checkerboard graphic – reminiscent of that of Croatia – on the sides. The other surprise comes from the yellow that stands along the entire length of the ribs and on the Nike comma. The yellow had not taken place on a home jersey since the 1972-1973 season. Shorts in the same design and white socks complete this outfit which could be worn on May 18 against Leicester in the Premier League.
