English Premier League top-side Chelsea had their 2022/23 home kit leaked. It was said that after they confirmed the kits with JD Sports, the makers of the kit then mistakenly leaked it in a video. It was previously unclear as to what strip the Blues would be lining up in for next season, as a kit launch did not happen on its usual date back in May due to the restrictions placed on the club.
Chelsea 2022/23 Home Kits Leaked
Following the sanction of their former owner Roman Abramovich in February, they lost all marketing deals as they were all suspended, meaning that the Blues would wait until new owners were in place to launch the kit. The club’s new owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake took over at the end of May, with the kit set to be launched over a month later.
It was previously unclear as to whether the Blues would stay with Three UK as their shirt sponsor after the company asked to be removed from the jerseys during Abramovich’s sanctioning period. But despite their request, the club did not remove the logo from their shirts and continued to play with the brand on the front of the kit.
It appears that Three will feature once again front and centre next season, as the kit has been leaked. JD Sports have put the jersey up for sale in the USA, with the Blues yet to officially launch the kit themselves. It is unclear as to whether this was a scheduling error by the supplier, with American Chelsea fans being able to get their kit as early as Monday if they order via express delivery.
The Blues are expected to officially show the kit and put it for sale on the megastore in the coming days or weeks. The club fans have taken to Twitter to react to the jersey, which had previously met a negative response when leaks emerged. Most of the fans said the jersey is horrible while others said it is fine which is normal with every club fans.
