Chelsea fans could be in for a pleasant surprise next season as the colour schemes for their Nike-manufactured kits for the 2021/2022 season were leaked online via Footy Headlines.
It involves a different shade of blue for the home kit, a throwback to the past with a yellow shade for the away kit, but the most eye-catching out of the three is undoubtedly the alternate or third kit: gorgeously clad in ‘blustery’, black and hyper crimson.
The colour pattern for 3 kits has been largely acclaimed by fans on social media –
The third kit will incorporate a gorgeous colour scheme we have seen before on a present Chelsea player not very long ago: as some eagle-eyed fans pointed out.
Fans have acknowledged the resemblance of the colour scheme of the new alternate kit to AFC Ajax’s beautiful away kit from Adidas for the 2019/2020 season.

The third kit is to be accompanied with black and hyper crimson shorts and socks, and is likely to be modelled on the basic 2021/2022 template for Nike kits: which is yet to be released.
The West London outfit are reportedly looking to add more firepower to their already effervescent squad next summer, and the recent leaks suggest that the players would look just as great on the field as they would like to play.
