For football starved fans there may not be any matches or blockbuster transfers but the 2017/2018 Chelsea shirt launch gives us a handy reminder that eventually football will return.
Next season Chelsea will wear Nike Football kits for the first time with Yokohama entering their third year as the main sponsor.

Needless to say, they will be happier after the Blues atoned for a terrible opening season by storming to the title and qualifying for the Champions League.
About The Design
The design seems quite simple and elegant, something that as fans we like at FamousCFC.com.
There is some shading but overall we have kept the colour the shade of Blue that defines the club with some toning to add a modern feel.
The round neckline includes a white trim with “CHELSEA” knitted into the back of the neck in white text, while “THE BLUES” is knitted onto the inside cuff of the right sleeve, with “EST. 1905,” a nod to the year of the club’s foundation, on the left sleeve.
The shirt and shorts of the away kit are white with a soft silver hue a good reminder of our ever-growing collection of silverware and the shirt has the same text embedded.
The techy amongst you may also purr over Aeroswift Technology which according to the marketing team at Nike enhances breathability, mobility and speed.
Perfect for the players on the pitch and the bustling at the bar at The Goose on matchdays.
2017/2018 Chelsea Shirt The Verdict
At FamousCFC.com we like the shirt it is simple, elegant. Unlike some designs in the past that have taken some getting used to, it just looks like a natural Chelsea shirt.
Will we be buying one? Well we will have to speak to the Mrs but the omens are good!
