‘Horrible, vile, disgusting’ – Chelsea fans are not happy with new Nike 2020/21 third kit leak

It is that time of year when football fans start thinking about next season’s kits.

The 2019/20 campaign is nine games – ten in a few cases – away from ending, although that conclusion has been put back to an undetermined date as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

No one knows, as yet, when the 2019/20 season will finish, or if the 2020/21 season will start in August as planned.

But with no football on the pitch, and at this time of the year anyway, new kits become the focus of supporters’ attention.

What will the new designs look like, which shirt will fans snap up if they only buy one?

Chelsea fans have seemingly already answered which kit they will not be buying, if a leaked photo is to be believed.

Pictures emerged on social media on Friday night of a potential third kit for the 2020/21 campaign via Blues fans Damian Bush.

The Blues are set to switch main sponsors in the summer, with mobile network 3 taking over from Yokohama tyres with the partnership announced by the club back in January.

The picture shows a shirt consisting of fading blue stripes on a red background, with a normal coloured Chelsea badge along with the new sponsors and the Nike logo on the front.

And the response has not been favourable.

These Chelsea fans will certainly be hoping this is just a concept kit, rather than a look at what the players will be wearing next season.

If it is the real deal, the club may not get much uptake in the shirt!
