LEAKED: Chelsea's new kit for the coming season
With a few modified touches, Chelsea's new kit looks the part.
Looking at the brand new Chelsea kit, it will look very unusual seeing the words 'Yokohama Tyres' on the front after Samsung has been their kit sponsor for the past 10 years. One thing that remains the same, however, will obviously be their trademark royal blue colour.
The kit also embodies the three typical white stripes along the arm of the shirt accompanied by a different style collar.
The new sponsorship deal is good news for Chelsea as it will provide the clubwith more money to spend whether that be on players or facility upgrades.
The deal is the second largest kit deal in English football history and is Chelsea’s biggest. Yokohama Tyres have agreed an initial 5-year deal, and the deal is reported to be worth over £40 million, which is twice the amount of their previous sponsors Samsung.
