Fresh images have emerged of what could be Chelsea’s away kit for the 2023/24 season with a stunning Nike design, Kieran Horn writes for Football London. Details over what will be the Blues home and away kits this season are yet to be confirmed as uncertainty surrounding who will be the main shirt sponsors rumbles on following the deal with Three expiring on June 30.
The news caused quite the fan backlash with the ban on gambling companies having sponsorship deals with English teams set to commence from the end of the 2025/26 season.
Nonetheless, the decision looks to have already been made which will see Stake, who have also sponsored Everton and Watford, displayed across the Chelsea shirts in fancy writing for the next campaign.
How the shirts will look or be designed is currently unknown but Chelsea supporters may have been handed a glimpse of their away kit. As revealed by Footy Headlines, the Blues away kit will have a retro feel as the colours are inspired by the away jersey from the 2002/03 season.

The leaked design, which does not include a main sponsor, is a mixture of navy blue and light blue that shows large diamonds scattered across the shirt with smaller shapes inside of them. While there is similarities to the kit from 20 years ago involving colours, the actual designs couldn’t be more different.
The leaked kit shows a very futuristic style, whereas the 02/03 strip is a basic design that looks simple and sharp eyes may also spot that the blue color used for the base, collar, and sleeve cuffs, which is soar, is the same as the one used for the Barcelona 2021/2022 home kit.
he Nike logo, border of the Chelsea badge and lion inside the crest are also interesting things to note as they look to be a shining gold. The remaining parts of the badge then fit with the sharp black that dominated the majority of the strip.
