It is claimed that some figures at the club believe it is bad luck to wear the new shirt in such a big occasion, per the Daily Mail.

What's more, the Stamford Bridge club decided to wear their new home strip for the Champions League final against Manchester United back in 2008.

Of course, they lost to Sir Alex Ferguson's team on penalties in Moscow.

That result saw them play in their current home kits in the 2012 Champions League final against Bayern Munich and the 2013 and 2019 Europa League finals - all which they won.

Chelsea, who qualified for the Champions League by the skin of their teeth this season, will be looking to add a second Champions League title to their collection.
