A season with peaks and valleys left Blues fans questioning their entire team, from the head coach (AVB was dismissed in March, 2012) to the scoring drought of El Nino, Fernando Torres. A strong pre-season looked promising, but fans tasted a reality check when the Blues were nearly eliminated in the round of 16 in UEFA Champion’s League by Napoli, only to score a winning goal in extra time and advance on aggregate.
The season was highlighted at points by a competitive run of the Premier League, but also plagued by controversies like the racial abuse affair with John Terry. If fans lost hope before the finish, they were sure to come crawling back, as Chelsea won their 7th FA Cup, along with their first UEFA Champion’s League Cup in perhaps the most exhilarating final match in the competition’s modern history.
Surely now, fans are raring to pick up a fresh Chelsea Away Jersey for the coming 2012/13 season. Chelsea has announced a summer tour, including stops in the United States in July. Without further ado, we introduce the adidas Chelsea Away Jersey for 2012/13, now available for pre-order.
The new Chelsea Away Kit for 2012-2013 is a flourish of white and vibrant blue. Taking a different direction than last year’s black and blue away kit, this jersey is a sharp white with a diagonal baby blue stripe from the team crest down to the right hip. For the first time on an adidas kit, the iconic 3-strip sleeves are a smooth gradient from dark navy on the shoulders to bright blue at the cuffs.
