Chelsea are set to release a fourth kit commemorating 50 years since the Blues defeated Leeds in the 1970 FA Cup final.
Fans won’t need telling twice the importance of the 1970 FA Cup final, as this was the first win in the competition for the west London club and that started a ball-rolling in the famous competition, with Chelsea winning eight FA Cup’s to-date.
⚠🏴🔵 UPDATE – First Real Picture Leaked: Classy Nike Chelsea 19-20 Fourth Cup Kit: https://t.co/WGpDaVe5jn

The Nike kit, via Footy Headlines, is in a throwback retro style with original club badge, with all current sponsors ‘blued out’ to create a clean, but perhaps simple looking kit, that has potential to be great but perhaps falls a little short of expectations.
The gold trim and the retro logo look good but the ‘blued out’ sponsors and Nike logo just make it look a little basic, but the true test is when the players wear it for the first time – expected to be in the FA Cup third-round.
The new Chelsea fourth kit is not yet on-sale in the UK, but it was apparently spotted in the USA for purchase.
Chelsea fans won’t have to wait too long to get their hands on the new retro-style fourth kit, with it expected to be on general sale in the UK on December 21st – perfect if you need an extra Christmas gift for yourself or to a fellow Blues fan.
The new Chelsea fourth kit is said to be an exclusive for the FA Cup in the second-half of the season and is expected to make its debut when the Blues host Nottingham Forest at the start of January 2020.
