“No way I’m wasting my money on this s**t” – Chelsea fans react as ‘leaked’ image of 2022-23 home kit surfaces online


Chelsea fans online have reacted negatively to the leaks showcasing their 2022-23 home kit by American sports giant Nike. According to leaked images which surfaced on Twitter, the home kit is a plain blue shirt with a white collar. There are no patterns on the home shirt unlike the current shirt which has a design in the front with a tint of yellow on the sides.

A section of Blues fans on Twitter were highly disappointed to see what their team might be wearing next season. Some of them have blamed Nike for not showing any ambition while designing the home shirt. Here are some of the best tweets in that regard:

It is worth noting that football shirts are getting more and more expensive as years go by. The current Chelsea home shirt has two variants - the regular 'stadium shirt' is priced at £69.95 while the 'Vapor match shirt' costs £104.95.

The Blues signed a big-money deal with Nike back in 2016 to replace Adidas as their official kit supplier. According to a report from the BBC , the club are due to earn £60 million per annum for 15 years. This would see Chelsea earn £900 million from their deal with Nike. They have had success wearing the Nike kit.

Thomas Tuchel's side lifted the 2021 Champions League by beating Manchester City in the final. Chelsea also won the UEFA Super Cup by beating Villarreal in a penalty shootout. It is worth noting that Nike sponsors a host of Premier League clubs. Apart from the Blues, the American company also provides kits to Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton & Hove Albion.
