- The Blues are yet to release the strip despite being over a month into the season
- But images of their new gold kit feature on FIFA 23, which was released this week
- Fans cannot understand why the design has still not been revealed by Chelsea
The Blues are expected to announce their third and final kit for the 2022/23 campaign in the coming weeks, which is much later than usual for reasons that are currently unclear.
And they have been made to pay for their hesitance, as images of the new gold, black and orange design have been leaked on FIFA 23 following its release this week.

The latest instalment of the popular football video game, which came out on Tuesday for customers who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition but is officially released this Friday, includes Chelsea’s third kit despite the club not yet unveiling it themselves.
The strip is predominantly gold, but it also features black and orange sleeve trims, black logos and white socks with a black-orange-black hoop.
Chelsea fans appear to be split down the middle over their new gold kit, but none of them can understand why it is yet to be released.

One wrote on Twitter: ‘We’ve come to a point where the club can’t be a***d to do the bare minimum.’
Another asked: ‘Why on earth has this not been released or announced yet?’
A third put: ‘We’re so unserious’.
A fourth commented: ‘No wonder it’s nearly October and still haven’t released the third kit. Club is a shambles’.
While one simply said: ‘Foolish team’.

Chelsea’s gold third kit should be officially unveiled by the club at some point over the next month, and Graham Potter’s side are most likely to wear it when they make the short trip to Brentford on October 19.
Potter is gearing up for his first Premier League match as Blues head coach this weekend, with his team set to go away to Crystal Palace.
The former Brighton boss replaced Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge earlier this month, only for the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the latest international break to delay his league bow for three weeks.
