Unlike their rivals, Chelsea are yet to release their new kits for the 2024/25 season. Despite some Premier League teams having already put up their home shirts for sale, playing the final game of the campaign in the new designs, no such progress has been made for the Blues.

It comes after their 2023/24 launch was delayed until the first game of the season. With conversations ongoing over possible new front-of-shirt sponsors there is still confusion and uncertainty once more.

Infinite Athlete were eventually passed by the league as an appropriate and allowed partner to appear on the tops. They played two games without a sponsor though and were forced to put the shirts on sale for several weeks without the sponsor branding included.

Now, just under one month away from the next tour of America, fresh leaks of the possible new shirts have come out online. Far from the concept art and snippets of the kits, Nike tags, Premier League logos, and physical shirts have been revealed.

Although not an official release - and there is still the possibility of small tweaks or larger ones with relation to the sponsors - the kits are likely to be extremely close to the ones confirmed later this summer. It means fans can start to plan their fits for when the new season rolls around.

With wavy lighter blue lines across the home shirt creating a watery illusion, the blue top also has striking orange streaks around the club and Nike badges. On the sleeve there are two stripes, one orange and one sky blue.

It is a move away from the more basic chest plate of the last two years and is closer to the heavily patterned 2021/22 top. As for the away shirt, it is eerily familiar to that of the 2019/20 season.

With a mostly white design there is more orange including a third stripe on the sleeve with a navy finish. The Nike logo is a darker blue, as is the inner of the badge, whilst the Chelsea lion appears to be red. Despite kits in the club's history having red it often jars with supporters, especially as recent memory and the season's associated with them tend not to be positive.

Elsewhere are thin orange lines across the shoulders too with a navy collar. Coming down the sides of the body are navy patches that are close to the white underarm of the home kit this season.

Now all that remains is for an official release to be made for these jazzy and smart shirts. As always, supporters will be eager to snap them up.
