Chelsea’s away kit for the 2016/17 season has officially been unveiled.
Kit manufacturers Adidas released an image of the Londoners’ new garbs on Monday morning, and tweeted that the kit would be available to buy from July 20.
The strip’s shirt is primarily made up of grey and black horizontal stripes, with a fluorescent yellow hue outlining the sleeve cuffs, neck and Adidas’ signature stripe design across the shoulders.
Chelsea fans took to twitter to express their opinions on their club’s new kit design, with the unveiling drawing mixed reactions from the fan-base.

As per usual, the replica strip won’t come cheap to fans, with the shirt priced at £55, socks at £13 and shorts at £30 (adults) and £25 (children).
This is the final time that the sportswear giants Adidas will make kits for Chelsea, after the Blues decided to terminate their £30m-a-year contract with them earlier than expected.
American manufacturers Nike will produce strips for the three-time Premier League champions from the 2017/18 campaign onwards, with the Blues netting £60m annually from the deal.
