Team kits

The team kits for the 2011–12 season are produced by Adidas and sponsored by Samsung. The home kit was revealed on Chelsea's website on 12 April 2011. The shirt takes inspiration from Chelsea's heritage with design features originating from past kits used in the early 80s and reflects this with the shadow striped design on the front panel. A white colour block has also been added to the sleeves and shorts, resulting in adidas' iconic three stripes appearing in blue for the first time on a Chelsea home kit.[7] The away kit was uncovered by Adidas on 9 June 2011. Turquoise squares are set on a black background to create a design unique to the club, while the shorts also feature a turquoise strip and the three adidas stripes in white. The socks include a revolutionary design that features anatomically placed cushioning and an Achilles protector.[8] Chelsea FC and adidas unveiled the new third shirt for the 2011/12 season on 11 August 2011. The sleek and stylish white shirt features bold colour blocking in navy and yellow on the upper chest.[9]
