Chelsea have unveiled their new away kit for the 2020/2021 season.

The Blues released their new home kit last week with UK Telecommunications Giant, '3' as the shirt sponsors.

The new away kit will be worn by Chelsea when they make a short trip across London to face Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

According to a statement on the club's website. : “Chelsea’s stunning 2020-21 away kit effortlessly blends an aura of traditional London tailoring with the energy and colours of today’s SW6.

“Building on the theme of the club’s new home look, the Blues’ changed colours celebrate the capital’s love affair with the craftsmanship of master tailors.

“However, the away kit adds an injection of millennial swagger – perfect for the confident, emerging talents lighting up Stamford Bridge under head coach Frank Lampard.

“Arctic blue provides a tasteful base colour for the jersey, with darker shades making up a disrupted herringbone knit which covers the front and back of the shirt to create a compelling aesthetic.

“A monochromatic club crest filled with a micro-herringbone pattern sits on the chest, alongside a dark blue Nike Swoosh.

“A dark blue V-neck collar and trim on the sleeves frame the design, while dark blue tape featuring the phrase, ‘The Pride of London’, runs down the sides of the torso. Arctic blue shorts and dark blue socks complete the head-to-toe look, with a Swoosh and a Chelsea lion placed midway up the shin.”

The Frank Lampard led boys will be hoping to win against Crystal Palace because the last time the home kit was launched it ended in a 3-2 defeat.
