CHELSEA, Manchester City and Tottenham have launched new third kits – all with a camouflage design.
The Premier League duo have revealed their brand new designs in a joint unveiling of a new range from kit manufacturers Nike.
Chelsea’s effort is different shades of grey, while Tottenham will wear a purple number and City will be wearing dark green.
All three strips are identical in style and design, and have the club name written at the bottom rear of the shirt. The official match shirt will cost £90 with a replica jersey priced at £60.
Chelsea will wear their strip for the first time later this month when they take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in the club’s stunning new Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Septmeber 27.
City are also expected to wear it for the first time in the Champions League, while Spurs will used the strip as their primary away kit in Europe this season.
Manufacturers Nike say their new Nike AeroSwift kits are ten per cent lighter and dry 25 per cent faster than their previous strips.
They claim all their kits are specially designed for players to play at full speed with “geometric knit zones that enhance fit and comfort”.
