As the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown and self-isolation continues at home, a lot of us are looking to update our space as we embark on some painting and decorating projects.

Chelsea reveal new home kit for 2020-21 season

Chelsea have unveiled their new home kit for the 2020-21 season, with the herringbone-knit patterned jersey due to be available from July 9.

A simple design, said to be inspired by the traditional craft of London tailoring, will see a new sponsor emblazoned across the front in the form of mobile company Three UK, with Yokohama Tyres no longer the club’s main shirt partner.

Announcing the new shirt, the west London club said: “Chelsea’s 2020-21 home kit brings a touch of Savile Row to Stamford Bridge by blending the latest in athletic innovation with the finesse of fine London tailoring.

“Inspired by west London’s long association with master tailors and their exquisite craftsmanship, the Blues’ new home jersey ventures into the realm of statement shirting. A luscious, textured, modern classic, wholly befitting the capital’s most stylish club.”
