Although Chelsea's 2018-2019 kit is still predominantly 'Rush Blue' with white branding, there are a few noticeable changes going into the Swoosh's second season at the Bridge.

Complementing the blue and white, Chelsea's 2018-2019 shirt includes a fair bit of red in the form of tapered stripes that run from the edges towards the center, both on the front and back. They alternate with similar white stripes to create a unique look unlike anything the club has ever worn.

The Nike Chelsea 18-19 home kit is based on the latest generation of the Vapor template. It is lighter than ever before and features a brand-new construction with a new knit pattern on the front, back and sleeves.

The shorts and socks of the Chelsea 18-19 Nike home kit will be blue and white, respectively, with the latter featuring blue and red trim.

At the moment, the launch of Chelsea's 18-19 home kit is scheduled for the month of May. It could be released before the end of the current season, as was tradition with Adidas, but it's too early to say. The last match day of the 17-18 Premier League season will be on May 13th.
