To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Chelsea‘s FA cup win in 1970, Nike has unleashed a commemorative kit for the Blues.

The retro-inspired kit is dressed in Chelsea‘s signature royal blue, while hits of contrasting yellow can be found on the club’s 1970 crest, which has been fashioned from silicone. Additionally royal blue and yellow accents follow through into the shorts, socks and player numbers. The reverse of the shirt features the same tab on the neck as this season’s home shirt, however in yellow rather than red.

On the commemorative kit Chelsea midfielder shared, “It’s a classy, stylish and sophisticated shirt — a great way of remembering the iconic team of 1970. We know fans of all ages are going to love its simple design.” Chelsea beat Leeds 2-1 in an FA Cup final replay at Old Trafford, with club legends Peter Osgood and Ron Harris in the starting lineup.

The Chelsea‘s fourth kit made its on-pitch debut this past weekend during Chelsea‘s fixture against Nottingham Forest. Interested fans can head over to select Nike retailers, Nike’s online store and Chelsea’s website to purchase a kit for themselves now.

In more football-related news, Nike debuted its NextGen VaporKnit FC Barcelona 2020 training kit.
