Chelsea will wear their new 2022/23 away kit in their Premier League opener against Everton on Saturday, it has been confirmed.
The Blues come up against Frank Lampard’s side for the first time since their 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park towards the end of last season.
The victory for the Toffees helped them narrowly escape relegation last campaign, with them looking to build on this under the former Chelsea boss.
With the additions of Marc Cucurella, Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling this summer, Chelsea will be looking to build on their third placed finish of last season.
Thomas Tuchel’s side lifted the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup last campaign, while also reaching both domestic cup finals despite suffering defeats to Liverpool both times on penalties.
With Chelsea facing Everton to start their campaign, it was previously unclear as to what kit would be worn by Tuchel’s side.
So far, only the home kit for the 2022/23 season has been unveiled at Stamford Bridge, which would have clashed with Everton, who also play in navy blue.
However, Chelsea confirmed their away kit for the season after unveiling Cucurella, who donned the white kit in his announcement after signing for the club.
With the kit available for purchase from the end of August, Chelsea will now be wearing this against Everton in their first match of the season.
Chelsea’s official website revealed this information, as they also unveiled the kit in an article rather than a more traditional announcement.
Describing the kit, the website wrote: “In a continuation from this season’s Nike home kit, our new away strip pays homage to one of the most important figures in the club’s history, Ted Drake.
"Chelsea will wear our brand new 2022/23 away kit at Goodison Park.
“Key design elements of the kit see the return of the popular white base colour, most recently seen during the 2019/20 season.
"The unique lion pattern that appears on the collar of the home kit now features as turquoise stripes across the away kit.
"The inner neck design includes ‘Chelsea FC, London’ - a tribute to our city.”
Chelsea fans will get to see their new strip in action, with the Blues returning to their home kit when they face Tottenham Hotspur on the second game of the season at Stamford Bridge.
Tuchel’s side will be looking to compete at the top end of the Premier League once more, with the season edging ever closer.
