Chelsea 16-17 Third Kit Released

The Chelsea 16-17 third kit features a traditional color combination in white and blue. Made by Adidas, the new Chelsea 2016-2017 third shirt was released on July 29 and is set to function as away jersey in cup competitions.

Adidas produces the new Chelsea 16-17 home, away and third kits for the last time after the contract they have agreed to cut their long-term kit sponsorship on May 11. Chelsea shirt sponsor Yokohama is again on the new Chelsea 2016-17 shirts.

Chelsea 16-17 Third Kit

This is the new Chelsea 2016-17 third shirt.

The new Chelsea 16-17 third jersey is white and blue, reversing the colors of the new Chelsea home kit. The Chelsea 2016-17 third kit includes an embossed lion on the left sleeve, similar to other new 2016-2017 Adidas third shirts including the Real Madrid 2016-17 third kit.

Other than that, the Chelsea 2016-2017 third shirt boasts a simplistic and modern look, with the Adidas stripes running down on the sides of the shirt rather than the shoulders and sleeves.

While this year's Chelsea third kit featured an unprecedented gradient design, the shorts and socks of the Chelsea 16-17 third kit are white and blue, just like the shirt.
