Chelsea unveiled their new black away kit and goalkeeper kit for the 08/09 season made by Adidas. Chelsea's traditional away colours are all yellow or all white with blue trim, but, as with most teams, they have had some more unusual ones.
The first away strip consisted of black and white stripes and for one game in the 1960s the team wore Inter Milan-style blue and black stripes, again at Docherty's behest. Other memorable away kits include a mint green strip in the 1980s, a red and white checked one in the early 90s and a graphite and tangerine addition in the mid-1990s. The 2007/2008 Chelsea away strip consists of an 'electric yellow' shirt.
