The Chelsea lion inspires the new third shirt


Written by Mathias Boughey-Svendsen

Since the middle of the nineteen-hundreds the lion has been a symbol of Chelsea, even though it has changed its looks a couple of times in the crest. Now it is the basis for the newest third shirt.

The common theme for all adidas’ third shirts can be found around the shoulders. Every shirt design is made with a predominantly simple design, which has then been given a bit of spice around the sleeves. Every pattern is a reference back to a characteristic feature in the club.

A classic and simple design through and through. The design takes the famous lion from the club crest and features it on the shoulders. The logo on the chest has been kept simple in a blue and white combination. All in all, the new Chelseas third shirt is a picture of elegance.

Hand in hand with the presentation of the new third shirt, adidas have also presented a short video, which you can see at the top of the blog.
