Chelsea go gold for new kit

By Duncan Hooper 12/04/2012 09:46

Chelsea's new kitChelsea aren't going to be league champions but they're going to use their London connection to jump on the Olympic bandwagon and add a golden touch to their strip for next season.


Yours for £55, the new kit is refreshingly simple and one might almost say regal.


Fittingly (some would say ironically) golden-boy Fernando Torres is chosen as one of the four players in the accompanying publicity shots.


You can pre-order it at the Chelsea store from May 10.

    A fan of all things competitive, Rob plays, watches and shouts on the terraces of most sports.

  • Lee HarveyLee Harvey

    Whether it's football, cricket, cycling, NFL, NBA or major league baseball, Lee will be there and won't be short of an opinion.
