Chelsea have confirmed what the 2020-21 home kit will look like by virtue of updating the walls of the walkways around Stamford Bridge.
The images that show Chelsea players celebrating and/or looking cool now feature the new home shirts, complete with the black trim around the neck and sleeves and the big cartoony logo of Three UK, the new shirt sponsors. If you have held out hope that despite all the leaks since January, the logo would be replaced by their wordmark (‘Three’) instead, this should kill those off for good. Furry mustaches for all!
As with most kit releases, some will take the pictures as news of players staying (if they’re featured) and going (if they’re not), but as usual, these pictures, which were probably taken weeks if not months ago, don’t mean anything in that regard. So just because you see Willian or Michy Batshuayi up on the wall, that doesn’t mean they’re staying.
On July 1st we have something huge planned with the Blues. Just Three days to go We don't want to give the game away just yet, so make sure you pop back pic.twitter.com/LI52EM9Gd6— Three UK (@ThreeUK) June 28, 2020
#StamfordBridge ready for the big reveal. Guessing it's all the new sponsorship - I Wonder if we'll be playing in the new kit, with new sponsorship on Wednesday night? Seems logical a sponsorship deal would start 1st of the month right? pic.twitter.com/e4zzl4M4Ec— The Chelsea Pensioner (@ThePensionerPub) June 29, 2020
