New Chelsea - Liverpool Adidas Jerseys

Following their dramatic win over Liverpool to make the Champions League final and with the entire football world still in shock after seeing coach Avram Grant actually smile (he did, honest) the club, in association with kit sponsors Adidas, have revealed their new strip for next season.
The new shirt incorporates the following Adidas technologies:
ForMotion technology allows complete freedom of movement. Radical cuts and 3D designs follow the shape of your body to increase comfort and improve performance.
ClimaCool technology ensures body vapour is pushed out so the sweat, as moisture, doesn’t form. So you stay dry, comfortable and performing at your peak.
It’s the second major announcement Adidas have made involving the London club in the last few days. A little over a week ago, they signed a huge new deal with goal keeper Petr Cech which, amonst other things, will see him abandon his protective helmet made by Canterbury in place of newly designed head gear from Adidas.

The new stylish kit is in classic Liverpool red. An embroidered Liver Bird is positioned on the back of the shirt and the inner neck of the shirt has a red chequered area inspired by the flags of The Kop. The shirt also carries a “This is Anfield” inscription, inspired by the famous Anfield sign.
The new shirt collar is ribbed with a v-neck which has always been well received on shirts from the past.
As always for Adidas, technology is at the forefront of the kit design. The shirt incorporates the world-renowned ClimaCool™ and ForMotion™ technologies which allow heat and sweat to escape and giving the athlete the freedom and movement to perform.
