EXCLUSIVE: Chelsea 18-19 Home Kit Colors & Info Leaked

Chelsea's first-ever home shirt by Nike is one of the blandest we can remember. Based on the brand's infamous Vapor template, it's basically entirely blue, with club and supplier logos offering just a tiny bit of contrast.

We can confirm that this is going to change as we received the first bits of info on Nike's Chelsea 2018-2019 home kit, in a news that is likely to please the London club's supporters. The Chelsea 18-19 jersey is set for a launch shortly after the end of the current campaign.

Although Chelsea's 2018-2019 kit will still be predominantly 'Rush Blue', there will be a few noticeable changes going into the Swoosh's second season at the Bridge. First off, the Nike Chelsea 18-19 home kit will be based on the next generation of the Vapor template. This means that it'll continue to have raglan sleeves and no 'real collar'. Beyond that, it's too early to make definitive statements of Nike's template for the next cycle.

Thanks to info we received, we came to know that the Chelsea 2018-2019 shirt will include at least a bit of red to go with the blue and white - at the moment we can only confirm this for the socks, where it might be used in similar fashion to Manchester City's home uniform this season. Use of red on the Chelsea 18-19 home jersey and shorts is not ruled out but cannot be confirmed either at the moment.

Seeing Nike's 2018 World Cup kits - or what we know of them so far - it's fairly safe to expect that the brand's club shirts for the following season including the Chelsea 18-19 home jersey will feature more unique and personalized designs, something the brand looks to achieve through the use of bespoke graphic prints and knits. If that is the case however, we have no details on it yet for the Chelsea kit.

The shorts and socks of the Chelsea 18-19 Nike home kit will be blue and white, respectively, with the latter confirmed to be featuring (at least a bit of) red, as mentioned before.

At the moment, the launch of Chelsea's 18-19 home kit is scheduled for the month of May. It could be released before the end of the current season, as was tradition with Adidas, but it's way too early to say. The last match day of the 17-18 Premier League season will be on May 13th.
