Chelsea are set to release a fourth kit for the rest of this season, at a cost of £80 – but it’s extremely unlikely the Stamford Bridge club will ever play in the new design.
Referred to as the ‘shirtholder’s’ shirt, the orange and blue uniform is inspired by the match data of the Chelsea vs Bayern München 2012 Champions League final, with the date of the historic tie on the lower-back.
Moreover, the shirt also pays homage to the club’s Champions League hero on that night, Didier Drogba, with the Ivorian’s personal signature on the inside of every collar.
The fan shirt is set to go on sale in shops in early 2019 and is expected to cost £79.99, according to the usually reliable Footy Headlines.
It seems the never-ending thirst for supporters’ money is alive and well in west London, but what do you think of the kit?
Would you part with your hard-earned cash to buy it?
