Chelsea football club are in their final year of a kit deal with Adidas, before starting a new £60 million per season shirt sponsorship with Nike.
So we thought we’d ask them a couple of simple questions regarding their football shirts;
What material(s) are this seasons authentic & replica Chelsea football shirts made from?
Will they shed any plastic microfibres when washed?
Cheslea’s customer services reply;
Thank you for your email to Chelsea Customer Services. I can confirm that the authentic shirt is exactly the same shirt that the players will wear during matches these shirts are made of slightly higher quality materials than the replicas. The authentic shirts are also much tighter than the replica and are designed to be skin tight.
The replica shirts are as the name suggests a replica of the shirts that the players wear. These are designed for fans that will not necessarily require all the technology in the authentic shirts, they are also a looser fit than the authentic shirts so may be a more comfortable option.
