Chelsea go green with bold third kit for 2021-22 season

Chelsea has revealed their last entry in their 2021-22 wardrobe. It features a third kit that is inspired by London's vibrant, youthful energy.

The jersey was designed with European nightlife in mind. It features a chaotic pattern of green-and black accented with bright crimson trim.

Nike claims that Chelsea's third kit's core theme was inspired by outer streetwear (tracksuit tops and jackets) that are fashion staples in London's capital.

To reflect the "diverse cultural fabrics" of their home town, Nike has embroidered an abstract graphic on the Blues' third shirt. It is encapsulated in the neck by the "Pride of London” logo.

This is also Chelsea's first green kit since the fluorescent-hued third-strip of 2010-11, when they were the defending cup and league champions. However, the season ended without a trophy.

The kit was launched as Thomas Tuchel's side attempt to defend their European crown, which they won last year, and the Blues will be able to discover their Champions League group stage rivals.

Nike continues to strive to reduce carbon emissions and produce zero waste by using sustainable materials to make the entire 2021-22 third-kit -- both player issue and replica for fans -- as well as polymers from recycled plastic bottles.

It's basically green inside and outside.
